5 stars!

I prefer this more than ebooks as listening to it is far easier to learn. Plus, the stories opened my heart to Spanish culture. The open-ended questions paved way to faster learning.

Not dull

The stories are not dull. They are enlightening and humorous at the same time. First-time learners like me won’t be so hard up in learning. This has to be one of the most valuable audio books I got in my audible.

Easy comprehension.

The Spanish stories may be short, but they stirred something in me that no other books were able to do so. And this is one unique book I must say. There is a translation at the end making comprehension easy!

Not for beginners

This is not for beginners. Joe Rodriguez speaks very fast and there's not enough time to process the Spanish part before the translation begins.

Only Spanish

Good way to have an introductory learning for Spanish. It teach the basics of communication and some vocabulary in an easy to understand plot. Using children's books to learn a new language is effective but it still cannot replace the benefits of a one on one personal interaction.

Highly valuable

I think that it is neat that they are teaching you the Spanish language through short stories and the Spanish-English dictionary along with the audio was a really helpful as well. The ebook is very innovated.
