The Superpolyglotbros aka Matthew & Michael Youlden are ginger-bearded identical twins with a passion for all things language. With over 10 years of professional experience in the language industry, from translation to language teaching and accent coaching, if there’s something to do with ‘languages’, it’s safe to say they’ve done it. Having achieved worldwide recognition for both learning and teaching languages in a record amount of time, the twins feature extensively in international media and speak more than 20 languages, with the list ever growing. Combining their own methods with a wealth of teaching experience at all levels, they believe that anyone, with the right tools and lots of fun, can learn a new language.

Excellent!

I’ve been learning Spanish through books written and audibles and YouTube vids and of course Netflix.
I wasn’t sure if this would be good for me but it’s fantastic! Not just for beginners but for intermediates too, the way the brothers teach is really natural and fun and I’ve learnt so much from it that has stuck in my mind.
I’ve just finished the whole thing and am going to start again.
The Paul Noble spanish courses available on audible are excellent too and there’s a beginner and intermediate one and Spanish with Paul on YouTube.
I highly Recomend this book and believe it will really help you on your spanish learning journey.

Boring, phrasebook Spanish

I have to say I found this really boring. It was effectively being given a list of words followed by the sorts of phrases you'd get in a phrasebook.

A lot of English speaking from the narrators too. Shouldn't there be more Spanish than English in a product designed to teach Spanish?

From the advertising, I thought this might be interesting but it just felt like the sort of lessons we used to get at school. And why is there the obsession at the beginning with asking where the bus stop is again and again and again?

Overall for me it was just much too much English and with some weird phrases like "And a tea is very English!". I can't imagine when this sort of phrase is likely to come in handy.

I listened to this on my laptop, hoping it would make me more able to chat in Spanish with the locals when I go to Spain but I can't see how this would ever be effective at doing that.
