The Best Beginner-to-Intermediate Spanish Language Book

While studying Spanish using the excellent Pimsleur CD's, I began to look for a book to add variety to my study. After trying several books from my library I concluded that Spanish Made Simple was far-and-away the best. I bought the revised (2004) edition which has an improved layout over the earlier (1984?) revision. After a brief introduction to pronouciation, the reader follows along as Mr.Adams is taught Spanish by a native speaker. I recommend that the reader also use an audio method of learning to supplement the book to get the pronounciation right. (The CD's mentioned above are very expensive but excellent.)

Spanish Made Accessible

This book, like the other four language Made Simple books, is a helpful resource for students who need a grammar base for their language learning--as most second-language learners do. The exercises eliminate the need to memorize and each lesson builds on the previous lessons. No, you won't become fluent with this or any other text; but you will develop a working knowledge of the language. I wish the publishers of Made Simple books would fund more books of its kind. Buy it.

Great book for learning Spanish

This is a great book for learning Spanish. You have to devote a lot of time to it. But keep in mind that there is no course out there that can teach you a language fluently in a short time. I found the letters at the last chapters very interesting. It gives you some practice in reading Spanish. I think this course give you all the basic Spanish you need to know and with further practice you are well prepared for a visit to Spanish speaking country.I just would like to tell you that in order to speak a language fluently you have to practice a lot. No one book or course can teach you that. Especially with all the variations of Spanish in Latin America. But this book gives you the fundamentals, and a little more.

Spanish Made Simple Works!!!

Spanish Made Simple is the absolutely best book for learning to speak and read contemporary Spanish. The book is written in the form of a interesting novel with the vocabulary and grammar seeded into the captivating narrative. Beginning with absolutely no knowledge of Spanish, I was able to converse on everyday topics within a few months. After two years of self-study, I tested out of 8 hours Spanish at the local community college. If you want to learn Spanish, this is the book to get. It worked for me. It will work for you.

A great book for beginners

The format lends itself for easy learning of vocabulary. Grammar sections are clear but not too technical for an average learner. The ongoing story is interesting and informative. I use the book extensively for review, although I have learned enough that my level of knowledge is beyond the level of the book. I used it to learn the language on my own, but it would be an excellent text for classroom work. There are ample exercises and to do the exercises does much to learn and retain the language.
