    Disappointed

    If you have your background set to anything other then white this book looks terrible on the Nook Color. I have it set to a grey background to mimic a paperback. It just does not work.

    Dont need

    If you take spanish at your school (like me) then this is of no use to you and seems kinda dumb. (At least thats the way i felt) although spanish is a very good language and is fun to learn. I am in the 5th grade and taking spanish and it is very fun. So the reason i am giving this book three stars is because it is no use to me even though spanish is fun.

    A Short Basic Introduction To Spanish

    The book is similar to the first chapter of a Spanish course. It covers the alphabet, basic numbers, and pronunciation rules. It covers a small number of basic phrases and words.

    It is text only with NO audio. There are apps for the Nook tablet that let yoy HEAR Spanish. An audio app is the best way to learn how to speak Spanish.

    But, for a dollar, this is a good summary of pronunciation rules

    There is nnothing wrong with this. I'm younger than you (11) and probably know more than you do. For those who want to learn spanish start off here and then work your way up.

    Amazing book. Helped me learn Spanish before my trip, and it was great that it was so easy to carry with around with me so I could easily look up a word if I forgot it while traveling.
