helped me to improve but strange sentences

the concept of listen and repeat whilst adjusting the sentence was helpful and clear voices too. however the sentences need to be more meaningful . many of the sentences were absolutely strange e.g. my grandfather bought as many screwdrivers as nails. or my breasts (Yes! not chest) are bigger than hers. or I've got bigger ankles than She does. but so much in this package to learn the grammar easily I think so o have mixed feelings

I have had to stick at this bundle, but worth it!

At first I did not like this because I found it very hard to hear some of the words, clearly, even when repeated. Listening over again three times, I have worked out most of the pronunciation, but not all. I know that seeing lips forming words is a great help, but even so, I have still had to refer to the text in the .pdf on occasion. Granted that Spanish is lispy and breathy! But, what I can say is that the sentences are broken up to aid learning well, something that I did not like at first, and it works! Then the use of the words is repeated often enough over time that I have picked up quite a large vocabulary and have moved on in the last few weeks. Paul Noble did make learning easier for me personally, as it was slower but less like normal speech, and I found this a much tougher ask! The main thing is that I have learned the tenses of the verbs without any formal drilling, have felt that the integration of pronouns has been diverse and useful and have probably progressed further than I expected in being able to understand fluent conversation. I have only been learning Spanish for months! Great bundle! This really needs updating though as who goes out to rent a movie these days etc.!

Mastery of intermediate/advanced grammar

This lesson plan is a continuation of the beginner level (lessons 1 to 30). It picks up at lesson 31 and uses the same teaching method just more advanced vocabulary and more advanced grammar than the previous 30 lessons. Well the grammar is more advanced. In fact, I'd describe the grammar in this bundle program as intermediate/advanced and I'd describe the vocabulary as beginner/intermediate. Since the teaching method is the same as in the beginner level, if you didn't like the beginner level you will not like this. And if you liked the beginner level you'll also like this intermediate bundle. Needless to say, I really liked the beginner level otherwise I would not have invested in the intermediate level. So that I don't spoil it all for you, I'll just tell you what's covered in the first ten lessons:


31. Expressing the future using ir a plus infinitive
32. Comparisons and names of body parts
33. More comparisons and names of farm animals
34. More comparisons and names of hardware tools
35. Conclusion of comparisons and introduction to "The Spanish Conditional"
36. "The Spanish Conditional" continued ó
37. "The Spanish Conditional" continued ó
38. The Conditional Perfect
39. The Conditional Perfect
40. Commands


Saludos y buena suerte!

Spanish subjunctive demystified

This program is the first and only Spanish program I have found that clarifies when and how to use the Spanish subjunctive. I have struggled to understand when and how to use the Spanish subjunctive, especially, with Spanish phrases expressing possibility. Gracias to this program, using the Spanish subjunctive is now a lot easier for me. Another added bonus to this program is that I am hearing and repeating after native Spanish speakers. So at the same time, while I am learning to master the Spanish subjunctive and other areas of intermediate Spanish, I am also learning how to pronounce like a native Spanish speaker.

Exactly what I was looking for

I have been wanting to learn the Spanish subjunctive for a really long time. Although the main program consists of 35 audio Spanish lessons with each lesson lasting about 30 minutes, there are 10 lessons that are specifically designed to teach everything about the Spanish subjunctive. From the Spanish subjunctive mood when expressing desire or preference, Spanish subjunctive using phrases such as "es mejor que" and "es necesario que", Spanish subjunctive with phrases expressing possibility, all the way to the Spanish subjunctive substituting the infinitive with the subjunctive mood. This program is exactly what I needed to help me learn the Spanish subjunctive. Another thing I really like about this Spanish program is that there are 10 bonus Spanish lessons (lessons A to J) which cover a lot of colloquial Spanish.

Only one drawback in my opinion

My review of Intermediate Spanish Bundle makes my third review of an audiobook by this author. I am a member of an audiobook club and this is one of the audiobooks that was recently listed. We are required to reveal in our reviews that we received the audiobook at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

Although I would not consider myself an expert in this field, I have been studying foreign languages for at least 30 years and have achieved either fluency or semi fluency in several languages. In my opinion, this is one of the better intermediate level programs compared to several of the intermediate or even advanced level audio programs that I have tried. There are several good or great things about this audiobook and one drawback. I will start out with the good and the great.


One of the main benefits is that the method of instruction is very intriguing and it will keep you alert and leave you wanting to practice more. Another plus is that this audiobook only features native Spanish speakers which I consider a huge benefit because it guarantees that I learn how to correctly pronounce all of the different words and phrases in the Spanish language.


But what stands out the most about this audiobook is that it takes complex areas of Spanish grammar and simplifies them. This is just what an intermediate level learner needs. I never personally had a problem understanding how the Spanish verb "gustar" functions. But I have met many English speakers learning Spanish who struggle to understand how the verb works. I believe that the poor understanding stems from the fact that so many Spanish programs make the mistake of treating the Spanish verb "gustar" as if it were the English verb "to like."

But this audiobook does not make that mistake. In addition to an accurate explanation of how the verb "gustar" works in Spanish, this audiobook also gives you lots of drills and exercises so that you learn to grasp and understand the verb "gustar" in the same way a native Spanish speaker would. That is, that the verb “gustar” means "to be pleasing to."


There are also several lessons in this bundle that helped me to learn more about some other intermediate Spanish grammar topics. For example, commands, including commands with pronouns and plural commands. Plural commands meaning when you are giving a command to more than one person. I also got to practice and reinforce the "hay que plus infinitive" structure. That's the grammatical structure in Spanish that is used to express the idea of "one must do something" or, "it is necessary to do something."


The only drawback of this Intermediate Spanish Bundle is that the author attempted to cover too much ground in this audio bundle of 19 hours and 35 minutes. For me it would have been more effective if the author had taken this audiobook and created two completely separate bundles with each bundle having about 19 to 20 hours each. For example, Intermediate Spanish Bundle One and Intermediate Spanish Bundle Two. By doubling or increasing the repetition of the drills and exercises this could have been stretched into two separate bundles without sacrificing the quality of the lessons.

Difficult Spanish grammar topics made simple

I have purchased and reviewed maybe 4 or 5 audio programs from this same author and this is probably my favorite. Why?

Because it does such a wonderful job of taking the most challenging areas of Spanish grammar and making them very easy for a native English speaker to understand. And without giving you the feeling that you are learning grammar in a classroom setting. In fact, when I am learning Spanish grammar with this program I feel more like I’m just learning conversational Spanish as opposed to learning the rules or structure of a language.

I will now go over some of the topics or areas of Spanish grammar that are covered in this program . One topic that is covered is the “conditional” tense in Spanish. And that teaches how to say phrases in Spanish such as:

If I were to win the lottery, I would do X or Y.

Or

If I were rich, I would do X or Y.

There also a couple of lessons which taught me the “conditional perfect” tense in Spanish as opposed to just the “conditional” tense in Spanish. And by learning how to properly use the “conditional tense” in Spanish, I now know how to express myself if I want to say phrases like:

I would’ve spoken
She would have walked.
They would have hired him.
We would’ve invited more people to the party, etc.

I also feel very comfortable using plural commands in Spanish now. So instead of only being able to tell just one person to be seated I can now tell several people to be seated. And instead of only being able to just one person to be quiet, I now know how to tell two or more people to be quiet.

Another thing that really impresses me about this program is that there is so much content for your money. Besides the 30 audio lessons which make up the core part of the program there also 10 bonus lessons which teach intermediate or advanced topics of conversational Spanish.

But I think what I like most about this program is the fact that it does such an awesome job of teaching the Spanish subjunctive. And the Spanish subjunctive is one area of Spanish grammar that has really frustrated me in the past. I’m still far from an expert when it comes to using the Spanish subjunctive but after using this program I do feel a lot more comfortable using the Spanish subjunctive.

Amazing Follow Up!

Great Latin American Spanish Intermediate Bundle. It was really easy to follow along as it consists of separate chapters that are around 30 minutes each. I struggle with verb conjugation and this helped. There is a pdf to download with all the lessons which is super convenient! This is a follow up to the beginner bundle. Even if you feel you are capable, I recommend getting the beginner bundle prior to going with the intermediate bundle.

The narrators did a great job and I appreciated that it was native Spanish speakers.
Overall, a great bundle that I highly recommend!

Vast, But Inefficient With Your Time

There is almost no explanation of anything. In the approximately 15 hours of lessons, there are perhaps 2 minutes total of explanation. Therefore I don't see how this could be considered as an effective teaching tool. However, if you had already previously learned, by some other effective teaching methods, the grammar that they cover, this does present examples of quite a bit of it. It does serve, therefore, as a good review of what you've already learned elsewhere. This is only because the unexplained samples they present serve as a queue to have you think back to what you've already learned, and then think through, and reason out in your own mind what they're presenting. You'll be saying, "Oh yeah, I remember when I learned that. I think I know what they're doing here. That's the conditional verb tense. Why didn't they mention that?" Without having already learned the grammar, you're just a ship without a rudder in the midst of a storm. Over my 10 years studying Spanish as a hobby, I've taken probably 15 different Spanish courses. This is easily the course with the least amount of explanation of anything. Although it serves as a good review, it is extremely inefficient with your time in doing that, explained later in this review.

Its approach is to present incessant, mind numbing, time wasting repetition of simple things.
Example: They spent 38 seconds covering that in Spanish, the word ‘email’ translates to ‘correo electrónico’. They kept repeating it over and over. 38 seconds for that!
Vocabulary, in general, is more basic than intermediate. Believe it or not, they presented the translation of Christmas - Navidad. Who, at the intermediate level, doesn't already know this? I’m upper-intermediate, and I already knew 95-98% of the vocabulary presented. The above ‘email’ translation is another such an example.
Everything done by examples without explanation. For example, they present numerous sentences using the imperfect subjunctive without ever mentioning the term imperfect subjunctive, either in English or Spanish.

The English speaking narrator, while usually clear, at times swallows words. There were a number of occasions when I had to listen to the Spanish translation to figure out what he said in English. However, the native Spanish speakers were excellent. They were very clear in everything they said.

The lesson on the subjunctive was akin to trying to teach someone how to be a complete mathematician by only performing 30 very similar long divisions on the white board without a word of explanation. This is very much the way that everything was presented. So I have to wonder about the reviewers who claimed that this book really, finally, made things clear to them about the subjunctive when other courses hadn’t. Additionally, only a small portion of the subjunctive mood was addressed, and again only through examples, without any real explanation of anything. There are entire books written on the subjunctive. What was presented here was a modicum of the subjunctive. There is some good in that that some reviewers feel that they've mastered it by listening to this book. They've learned something useful and important. But at the same time, they should realize that this was like an art student walking through a gallery showing only a couple of styles of art from a narrow window in history. It doesn't turn that person into a master in all art forms. There's lots more to the subjunctive than what is presented in this book.

Finally, while the approach is quite inefficient, the volume of material is vast. 15 hours by my quick calculation. So I think everybody could learn, or relearn something with this book. But in the same amount of time, one could have learned a lot more by using other books instead.

Not flawless but still 5 stars

There were some conversations in this audio course which I felt were somewhat dated such as renting a movie to watch. But that aside I still give it 5 stars because I am very happy with the amount of progress I made from using it. In particular, I am much better at correctly conjugating Spanish verbs. And I don't mean I've only improved my ability to conjugate Spanish verbs with a pen and paper. I am a lot more comfortable conjugating Spanish verbs when actually speaking the language as well.

I like it even more than level one

I have only completed the first four lessons (lessons 31 to 34) but already I like it more than level 1 (beginner level Spanish bundle). Maybe it's my imagination but I think the speakers in level 2 sound a bit more polished than the speakers in Level 1.

Great Pace and Beautifully Read

I am enjoying the format. I like how each section builds upon itself. The multi-narrator dialog/conversation is also very nice. It makes the listener really feel like he/she is in a room of native speakers. Great job. I will have to pick-up the first 30 lessons to have a full set. I plan on listening to this again and again to keep up my speaking skills. This course is well worth it!
