Product Description

What''s preventing you from teaching Spanish in your homeschool or learning it on your own? If you''re intimidated because you''ve never studied Spanish, bewildered by traditional Spanish books that move too fast, or just don''t know where to begin, then Getting Started with Spanish is for you! Specifically designed to overcome these types of obstacles, Getting Started with Spanish is divided into simple lessons that explain the fundamentals of Spanish grammar in a way that anyone can grasp. Instead of burying you in mountains of information to memorize, new words and concepts are introduced in a gradual and systematic way. You can immediately apply what you''ve learned by translating the fun exercises at the end of each lesson. Quickly check your work by turning to the included answer key. To hear the words pronounced, listen to the free recordings available from www.GettingStartedWithSpanish.com. For additional help and instruction, the author has provided extensive audio commentary recordings that teach through every lesson. With everything you need here in one book, why aren''t you Getting Started with Spanish?

If I could give this book ten stars I would. Yes I have Rosetta Stone, all 5 levels, and I was still struggling. I bought two beginner books from Amazon, this one and another. The other book on chapter one had 67 words to learn, this book chapter one had one word to learn. Guess which book I started with? You start out with one word a chapter and then go into two words a chapter. Each chapter goes through a concept and then has 10 sentences to work through. There are 177 lessons in all. Every chapter continues refreshing you in the exercises on what you have covered in the past. By the end of the book you have covered gerunds, gustar, encantar, multiple verbs ending in -ar and -er, adjectives, thanking someone, subject pronouns, indirect object pronouns, possessive pronouns, prepositional pronouns, questions, personal `a'', expressing purpose, being hungry, and many, many rules. The explanations of why you are doing something are excellent, it is almost impossible not to understand what they are saying. In lesson one you learn to say and write "the boy" and at the end of the book you are able to easily say and write "She is not able to go to the park because she is having lunch with her family right now." This book MAKES SPANISH SIMPLE, you can''t fail using this text. I can''t tell you how much confidence I now have to go further with my studies. Thank you William and Antonio for taking the time to write a text that will keep a beginner from giving up and walking away. I am an adult, it would work for all ages, it is such an easy format to understand. There are days when I chose to do multiple chapters, you can choose your own pace. A SLAM DUNK for success.

I think this book does a pretty poor job of teaching spanish in any meaningful or useful way.

the first 3 "lessons" are "el" "nino" and "la" in that order. and the rest of the book follows suit. first, gender and articles can be covered in one lesson. i didnt need el and la split up into two lessons even when i was first learning spanish. putting a noun between them just to give an example? not a fan.

i''ve had a few years spanish and even though im incredibly rusty this seems like a book for gradeschool children, not for adults serious about learning a language. just my opinion.

This is a great book, whichh I highly recommend, for anyone beginning Spanish studies.The lessons are well written, providing step by step instruction with the appropriate level of challenge without being confusing. I copied the lessons into a notebook rather than writing in the book in order to gain a multi sensory learning experience. After finishing this book, I moved on to another wonderful book, Madrigal''s Magic Key to Spanish, which covers about everything you need to know about Spanish. Along with these I have also used the Pimsleur Approach discs in my car. I also have Rosetta Stone which I do not recommend as a place to start, but after you have learned quite a bit of Spanish, you might find effective for increasing vocabulary and for general practice.

I speak Spanish as a second language, my daughter doesn''t. So we are using this book together to supplement her high school Spanish class. I find that its simple one topic per chapter is easy enough so that no one need feel overwhelmed. Yet the practice sentences at the end of each build on previous chapters making it easy to build skill level quickly.

We bought this curriculum having had some Spanish already so the first few lessons were too easy. If you already know some Spanish, I would recommend doubling up on them until you reach a point where you are learning new things. The order of the lessons make a lot of sense and it is quite a gentle intro to Spanish.

The Lifepac spanish is very expensive, so after reading the reviews on this book and one of the reviews by a teacher I decided to purchase. My homeschooler decided Spanish as an elective and she loves this book. She was into lesson 12 in just a few days. It is true, his method cuts right to the point and helps you to understand in layman''s terms without confusion. I would recommend getting a visual English/Spanish Dictionary and a pack or two of post-it notes. Study 5 to 10 words per week, using them instead of English, write the Spanish word for items you use often, such as; stove, microwave, door, dishes, etc. and place the post-it note there were you will see it and then break it down beginning with colors, numbers 1-10, animals just as they do in school. Don''t waste your money on expensive software programs and books. Also if you know someone who speaks Spanish, ask for some time to talk with them and make sure you are pronouncing the words. This book includes the online mp3 that he has prepared to go along with it, which are free to asses via smartphone or computer, so nothing more is really needed, except sincere interest and commitment to use it and the mp3 ''s..

But this book started so simply, once he understood the concepts, he was able to go back to the class book, and study for a test tomorrow, and get an A, because the first chapters started with simple things like The, A, And. Brilliant.

My son is learning Spanish, and this is a great book for him. He''s encouraged by the pace... it slows things down to really let him take in the learning step by step. Instead of throwing multiple topics at him with each page, Getting Started With Spanish clearly explains concepts on each page. Sounds like a waste of trees? Not to me. It doesn''t overwhelm the learner.

Simply, I think the book is Brilliant, it has really advanced my understanding of the simple but important aspects of learning Spanish. Though the book is 250 or so pages, you can move through the book quite quickly. It consists of a number of lessons, normally a lesson per page, with a fantastic explanations. The aspect of this book which appealed to me most was its simple method of explaining things. It doesn''t explain things like a robot but like a human so you can really understand things. Additionally, learning a language you will not find one perfect book to learn from, but for beginner this book, combined with the online mp3 is as good as it gets. My only criticism is its lacks any real challenges in terms of quizzing you on the information you have learned. Nevertheless, it provides questions at the end of every lesson to test you. The authors are great at making sure they test you on previous lessons further on in the book. All in All a Brilliant book for beginners...if it was not I wouldn''t waste my time writing a review. :)
