The key to learning a language is listening and repeating out loud. A three year old child might use 200 different words in a day, but communicates well with adults.

This app lets you learn a few dozen basic phrases and a couple of hundred basic words while learning to pronounce Spanish correctly. A person who totally masters this course would have a solid foundation to build on, and would be able to carry on basic conversations.

I hope the author will offer a second and third level to this course. REMINDER: Be sure to go to your Nook's settings menu, and set the audio level for media to 100%. That allows you to use the volume button on your Nook to hear the voices clearly.

    more from this reviewer

    meh.

    Not what I was hoping for. I didn't want flash cards or boring pages of phrases. I would like to find an app that incorporates Spanish words and phrases into a fun game, so I don't get bored.

    Fun, but limited

    It's a good idea and it seemed like a great way to practice, but there's not much to it.
