Learn Spanish While You Drive

Written by AZJEM from Phoenix, AZ on November 5th, 2008

  • Book Rating: 4/5

This book is excellent for someone who wants to start learning Spanish, or wants to sharpen their Spanish skills. The speakers are easy to understand, and each lesson begins easy and progresses to more difficult words. I found it greatly helped my vocabulary; I'm looking forward to more advanced versions to improve my technical skills (sentence structure, verb tenses, etc.). Highly recommended!

I still don't speak Spanish.

The first 2 CDs of this book consisted of a woman saying something in English and a man repeating it twice in Spanish. There was nothing to keep your interest and nothing to help you remember. I don't see how there would be any possibilty of learning to speak a language in this manner. While driving in traffic there is no way anyone would be able to concentrate enough to memorize words and phrases in another language. I don't know if it got any better, I quit after the first 2 CDs.

I had a hard time with this, maybe I just need classroom instruction, I had a hard time understanding which words were what because of the introduction in english/spanish it confused me about what words were what.

Learn in Your Car Spanish - Levels 1, 2 & 3

This is a good way to learn Spanish. For the beginner, it starts with the basics, through repetition of short phrases. As we progress into the more advanced levels, the phrases become more complex and include different verb tenses, irregular verbs, and some grammar. No explanations, just practice. There may be a bit too much emphasis on travel, money and transportation, though, and not enough on daily conversation. As for audio quality, when the narrators change, the volume becomes a bit unstable. When listening with headphones, it can be a little annoying. I recommend this course for someone who has the basics and who wants to learn more.

Learn in your car Spanish 1

This set was useful to refresh some basic vocabulary and learn some new words, but becomes boring after a while. I found it useful to listen to one of these discs and then something else for a change of pace, then repeat the disc. I found that conjugating verbs, etc., one of the hardest parts of learning Spanish, I think, is impossible unless you have a chance to write and read visually as well. So overall, this was moderately useful.

This would work better if I'd had some classroom work in Spanish. This didn't get me to any level in spanish that I was anticipating. This would work really well as a refresher type course.

This is your basic 'repeat after me' language learning disc. I had some trouble understanding what he said but that is a recurring problem with me and the disc should not be blamed. I had hoped for more conjugation and less travel phrases, but it is still a good primer.

Effective but boring

I travel 30 minutes to/from work every day, and listening to this CD has really helped me get a basic understanding of Spanish. However, I must admit that this CD is boring. Someone says a word or phrase in English, and someone else repeats it twice in Spanish. My advice is to buy a good exercise book and to use this CD to complement it.

so-so

I've had some spanish before, so some of the lessons were entirely too basic for me... even so, it seemed to go way too fast through the material. Having the workbooks would definitely be handy. Really, I've about convinced myself that the only way to maintain and build foreign language skills is to have someone to converse with on a regular basis. Yet I've still got 4-5 other language tapes on my bookshelf, so I'll keep trying.
