I listened to this in the car on my way to and from work. I learned how to ask for a table for two well over a week ago, and I'm still remembering it! This is quite impressive!
The CD will need a few more listens until it all sticks in my head this well, but based on the amount of information that I've retained just from a single run-through, I am highly impressed with this title. I may try others in the series!
"Fun and Painless"
Frantically trying to keep up with my 6 year old son and his Spanish learnt after primary school each Tuesday. This is the most soothing audio language tutor I have come across. Oh that it was available when I sat my O-level Latin many years ago. The paced repetition of words and phrases linked to the music background makes the language stick. I shall buy 'Rapid Spanish: Volume 2' soon.
"Rapid Spanish: Volume 1"
Very easy to learn. Ideal for holidays. You will be sing the words in no time. Muy bien!
"So simple yet so effective."
This was so easy to listen to, moving forward at just the right pace. My children loved it, I loved it the waiters in Spain loved the results!
"Earworms is a great idea"
So far I have learnt more from my French ones than my Spanish ones and I have been to Spain more times than France but I learnt French at school.
It really helps to have the schoolkid knowledge and to work up from that. I will leave my spanish learning here and revisit this book.
I didn't feel the need to go on to the second book just yet.
Buy if you are about to go Spain and have no or very little knowledge of Spanish and like the idea of music and learning in a sort of slightly hypnotic way.
"Brilliant way to learn holiday spanish"
What a great idea - it is quite soothing listening to the dialog between the English and Spanish presenter with the music in the background. You will learn how to ask for things in a resturant, out on the street, how to count and tell the time and how to ask for various other items whilst shopping, at the doctor etc. Essential for holidays and fun to listen to.
I am really glad I listened to the other reviewers and bought this.
"Excellent and enjoyable"
I am really enjoying this Spanish learning interlude on my way to and from work. Co-traffic must think I'm mad saying words in Spanish with my windows wide open. Can't wait for Volume 2.
I am hooked. I downloaded volume 1 and 2 of Italian, French & Spanish in order to brush up languages I had previously learned to varying degrees. I am already wondering what language to attack next! I travel a lot with work and have the audiobooks on as I'm driving around and am already memorising words and phrases that I'd either forgotten or never knew. I don't feel that I need a book, although I have downloaded the accompanying pdf files for reference. Almost everything I can pick up straight from the recording - just as language is acquired naturally by children - listening and repeating.
"Five Stars. A+"
I really enjoyed this audio, I found it a joy to listen to, especially when in the car,and they really do work, I took in more information from these than at my spanish course.
"Earworms Rapid Spanish Spanish Volume One"
A practical and pleasant way to perfect basic spanish phrases. Lovely music, very soothing way to learn.
