Excellent learning aid, especially in Kindle format.

Hoping to perhaps retire to Mexico, I am endeavoring to learn Spanish on my own after 30+ years has passed since I had to take Spanish in college. Although it certainly is not sufficient by itself (because one needs to actually hear the language being spoken), I find it is one of the best books I've purchased for learning the Spanish language. The material is very well organized, and I concur with those reviewers who rave about the book. The vocabulary lists, especially, are very helpful to me. I find that, in browsing them as I work through the chapters, I can refresh myself on what I used to know and pick up new vocabulary. It's encouraging to realize that, even with my native English vocabulary, I forget the meanings of words I don't often use and a dictionary is always at hand if I don't understand something. I feel like less of a dufus, in other words. The lists in Fundamental Spanish are plentiful, but each list is not overly long, so I can literally review a list when I'm watching TV, when a commercial comes on, and pick it back up later. Having the book in Kindle format, of course, makes it very easy and convenient to always have the book with me, so I get far more instruction and practice than I would if it were sitting on a bookshelf. Highly recommended.

great so far

I haven't completed the book, but so far I really like it. It is making Spanish grammar make more sense to me. I am using it in conjunction with "Learn Spanish in Your Car CDs" which helps with pronunciation.

Wonderful Text, a "Recommend" for prior students of Spanish

Having worked through the first two chapters, I am very pleased with the arrangement and scope of material so far. Vocabulary items are grouped thematically, grammar explanations are succinct, and the practice problems are simple yet effective. I should preface all of this by stating here that I HAVE studied and practiced Spanish before, so I do have some Novice-level proficiency in Spanish. Anyway, this text could be developed further with an accompanying audio resource. There is no audio here; only text! Therefore, the first-time student of Spanish should use this Text in combination with other resources such as CD-attached textbooks, Podcasts, TV broadcasts, etceteras.

Fundamental Spanish

I am a Spanish Teacher and I found this book so clear and streamlined that I can teach chapter by chapter and I see the fast progress the students make. My students enjoy doing the exercises and reading comprenhension activities. I have been able to teach succesfully at all levels. From beginner to intermediate learners is a great tool; and for advanced students to help them clear all doubts about Subjunctive, Preterite and Imperfect, this book is PERFECT.
