Not without its frustrations (1/1 people found this helpful)

I learned Spanish at school many years ago so I had a bit of a head start with the MT 8 CDs.

As many other have pointed out there are parts of this course that may drive you to distraction. I shall say PUEDE and leave you to discover for yourself. And MT over does the accent/emphasis sometimes, actually nearly all the time.

However, I have learned such a lot by persevering with the set. I think that if I had been taught like this at school I would have found Spanish more interesting and rewarding and more fun.

MT teaches you sentence structure with a minimum of nouns. His technique for teaching verb conjugation was for me much easier. By the end of cd 8 you may have trouble saying "The green pencil is on the blue table by the yellow window." But you will be able to say "I am sorry but it is not acceptable for me like that and I am going to need it tomorrow.." which I think is more useful.

You can then go on to learn the vocabulary that suits your situation or immediate need without having to fill your head with such phrases as "What time is the next train to Vladivostok?" or "How much are your Aubergines?"

If you are looking to learn Spanish on the cheap then this is a very good place to start. But it is not without its frustrations. Do it then find a tutor.

Revision of long unused Spanish (0/0 people found this helpful)

I grew up in a Spanish speaking area and studied Spanish in High School. I haven't used the language for 40 years. I want to travel in South America. I found the course an excellent review tool. I have now ordered the Advanced Course and the Spanish Language Builder.

5/5 stars

Learning Spanish (1/1 people found this helpful)

I have found this box set very helpful indeed. His learning technique is clear and he explains in simple terms the grammar of Spanish. The course is progressive and gives a real understanding of the language without it being a parrot fashion course. You end up having a real understanding of the language and know why you are saying what you are saying in different situations. Well recommended!!

Don't Buy (2/3 people found this helpful)

I cannot focus on the content because the man's mouth noises are just so annoying it is worse than a noisey eater he sounds as though he has very badly fitting false teeth, also he is sometimes so difficult to understand unlike the students whose speech is clear that I have to have an online free translation site open to check on the Spanish.
