It literally is lists of conjugated verbs (yo/tu/el/ella/nos/nos/vos/vos/ellos/ellas) (excuse missing accents), which you can either repeat or anticipate, or both. If you learn by repetition, this will help.
Starts with AMAR (reg AR verb model) in the present; repeats with slight variations (making it a question, adding 'not', shuffling the order of the pronouns; then moves on the imperfect and does the same drills, then preterite and same drills again... and so on. Each section is a short chapter so is easy to find / skip.
Beautifully pronounced, so it is easy to copy the stresses.
The order is odd: I expected AMAR to be followed with a regular ER verb but got DORMIR, but that's OK. No sentences so it's not for listening/translation skills but if you concentrate (mostly) you will likely start to skip some chapters before long coz you will absolutely know how to conjugate the verbs. Hurrah!
Very little explanation, didn't know what I was meant to be listening too, what tense I was in, the verbs were unclear and very little translations
Yes greatly, chapters are not laid out, this is meant to be a learning book
Very little explanations
Very expensive considering you get no additional information, a 3 minute clip at the beginnnig of the book is not enough to showcase the book.
What impressed me most about this audiobook, was the level of contact you receive with a native speaker, which I found really helpful and a great boost to my confidence. The audiobook is also incredibly thorough, working through several different verb forms and the audio itself is very high quality. Would recommend!
Sometimes she changes the order of the pronouns before the quizzes.
Another thing is many verbs can have different ways of being translated, like the verb “to leave”, which is translated as “salir” and less commonly known as “partir”, which actually means “to break”. In the audiobook, she translated “partir”, which actually means “to break”, as “to leave”, which is not wrong, but it is incorrect. But of course, everything depends on the context.
The way she teaches the verbs is great. Moreover, I enjoyed a lot the quizzes, they are very helpful to learn the verbs.
Yes, she did. She explained it very well, but in some occasions she does not tell the listener when she uses the negative form, which can get sometimes confusing.
Moreover, Lucia Bodas has a slight different pronunciation from normal Spaniards, as she is from South America, where they have another way of pronouncing verbs and words in general, a bit different from native Spanish speakers.
Yes it was, but obviously you cannot learn all the Spanish verbs from this audiobook, as well as the colloquial forms, irregular and reflexive verbs.
I have been speaking and learning Spanish since I was three years old, as I am living in Spain, hence, learning the verbs is very easy for me. In my opinion, Spanish verbs are more diverse than the English ones, as there are more verb tenses, irregular verbs, reflexive verbs and more, which can be very tricky. I must say that this audiobook is good, even tough I already knew these verbs, and I would recommend it for anybody who would like to learn some basics of the Spanish verbs.
I find it helpful for good pronunciation and the cadence gets easily into my head. So you can learn to repeat exactly where to put the accent and you learn easily to speak correctly. The difference with the South American's spoken is probably a little bit generalised and basic, because in South America there are so many other differences between their dialects spoken. In addition to the English translation of the infinity form verb I'd try to translate even the words of the tense and I'd try to change the chapter's titles from simple numbering to titles with the content of the chapter.

This is just the thing I have been searching for - a simple way to memorise verb conjugations while I work.
The introduction to the various tenses lacks detail- but it is presumed that the one listening already has this knowledge.
I especially like the way Lucia leaves room to practice at the end of each chapter.
"Very Practical Book!"
This book is an excellent tool that allows the listener to gain proficiency through repetition. I had a difficult time with Spanish verb conjugation in the classroom and application through speaking, but listening to this book allowed me to catch on to the concept quickly and I improved. I would recommend this product to any Spanish student or those that want to become fluent in the language. This book is very practical!
"Very useful for conjugating verbs"
Useful, informative, educational
This is the only book of its kind that I have tried, so I cannot provide an answer to this question.
I liked the book as a whole.
I spaced out the book in multiple settings to fit with my schedule.
This audio book is especially useful for those who have already studied the Spanish language and want a good refresher on conjugate verbs. The narrator gives you time to repeat the words in different tenses, and the words are very clearly pronounced so it makes for easy repeating and memorizing.
"Good audiobook for conjugating Spanish verb"
The book is a pretty good review of how to conjugate basic Spanish verbs. The list of verbs covered by the book are pretty much the basic forms that anyone interested in studying Spanish has to master. I liked how archaic tenses were not covered as they do not come up in daily speech. The drills are pretty helpful and enough time is given for you to repeat after the speaker. One knock on this would be that the speaker's English isn't as good as it could be, but it doesn't affect the listener's ability to comprehend what is being said.
"Good didactic material"
Yes, it is very didactic and the content explains it in great detail
The examples where conjugate each verb is complete, each example explains clearly
It is the first time that I hear a publication of Luica Weddings, I think it is a good option, I would like to see another publication
The biggest reaction I had was the understanding of the Spanish language
Very good author I hope another publication where I can listen
"Great book for all types of Spanish speakers"
The method used to remember the phrases is unique. The increased speed is a bonus to the challenge of repetition that's used!
"Amazing Spanish refresher"
Growing up in a Spanish speaking household I had a small grasp on the Spanish language and tried to continue learning through free apps. Sadly, growing up I've lost most of my skills over time. This audiobook is an amazing refresher for the Spanish language.
Pronunciation and language mannerisms in the lessons are completely authentic and lie in sync with hearing native Spanish speakers like my grandparents.
The coaching is so easy to follow and the difficulty is for the novice so it won't stress anyone out. The cognitive teaching strategy of drills is ideal for those of us who don't want to spend hours listening to stories and just want to learn the organic language.
Lucia Bodas has the gift of teaching. Her clear assertive voice paired with her presentation of the lessons makes it effortless to follow along.
Overall, I loved this audiobook! I thoroughly enjoyed this program. I found it to be very instructive and practical with no time wasted.
"loving this audiobook! :D"
The audiobook is very good, it focuses a lot on the verbs and the correct pronunciation, I was struck by the fact that in many examples they teach you the differences between Spanish from Latin America and Spanish from Spain, although the differences are minimal, it is very good to learn them. I would recommend this audiobook.
Muchas gracias y saludos a todos :D
I am a visual learner, so it is very difficult for me to retain knowledge by listening. Because of this, I have issues comprehending spoken Spanish. It was very hard for me to listen to this book, and my attention often wandered. However, I did learn quite a bit and feel the book improved both my ability to understand and speak the language. I love that I can listen to it from the app whenever and wherever. I also liked that it had quizzes to make sure you're doing well. Overall, I would say the book was just okay. It was kind of boring, but I don't know that one could make conjugating verbs exciting.
"A Solid Set of Drills"
I don't listen to a lot of audio books. I got this because it's a book that build skills.
This is a non-fiction book with drill to help pronounce Spanish verbs.
It was authentic and informative.
This is not a story book and this review process has some flaws.
This is the most comprehensive set of drills I’ve seen for Spanish. It helps you sharpen your Spanish-speaking skills in a way that reading the words on a page can’t; by saying them the way they’re spoken. The best part is the random exercises that keep you from “zoning out” and make you engage with the exercises.
As a drill book, it’s made to build on knowledge you already have, not teach you Spanish. If you’ve already learned some Spanish but need to get ready to recognize or snap off conjugated verbs in conversations with native-speakers, this is your book.
"Practical and Easy!"
I haven’t taken a Spanish class in almost ten years, and conjugation was something I always struggled with. I wanted to refresh myself on the language, so I purchased this audiobook. I really love the format that is used in this book. The drills are especially helpful. My pronunciation of verbs has improved greatly, and my memory of the conjugations has also improved. I’m really pleased with this audiobook. I would recommend it to anyone I know who is having difficulty learning Spanish.
