    Great Start for Learning Spanish

    This is a good course - I'm definitely enjoying it - but I don't recommend you use it alone if you can afford any supplemental books. Almost all of the Hugo * In Three Months courses have a book and 4 accompanying cassettes - which this one does (a few like Hugo's Welsh in Three Months only have 2 cassettes). The positive points about this set are the clear explanations of various points of grammar, numerous drills and the dialogues that end each chapter. There are vocabulary lists to learn immediately before each dialogue or drill and a mini Spanish-English dictionary at the back. There is also a key in the back to each exercise to check for accuracy. I also liked the approach taken with the drills. It is expected that you will work through them as both oral and written exercises. I liked that the author did not downplay reading or writing ability compared to speaking. The last chapter offers a section titled Reading Practice and offers excerpts from books and magazines by modern authors. Even at this late stage the author mentions to take note of new vocabulary words. By the time you've finished the book you should have a good working knowledge of Spanish and be able to be understood reasonably well in any Spanish speaking country. You won't be fluent since that takes years of practice but you will be able to be understood. Overall, I'm even more pleased with this Latin-American Spanish course than I am with their German set. Even a course as good and thorough as this one can not cover everything a serious student will need to learn if he/she wants true proficiency. For one thing, even with all the oral exercises and dialogues on the tapes (and there are many) most people will need more repetition and practice than what it can provide. The simple fact that the book is only 255 pages also means the author must move rather quickly. Each page may have several new grammar points introduced and illustrated with only 1 to 3 sentences before moving on. These were just not enough examples for me to really feel like I was making all the progress I wanted. If you just want to get by while on vacation then this course will be more than enough. But if you're like me and wanting to learn for the joy of conversing intelligently in a foreign language you will need something more. Fortunately there are 3 books which I believe are excellent complements to this course. The first is the Berlitz Self-Teacher:Spanish. The second is Margarita Madrigal's Magical Key to Spanish. The third, of course, is the all important Spanish-English/English-Spanish dictionary. Each reinforces your learning in different ways and your Spanish will be better than when using any one method alone. Use them together and amaze yourself and your friends with your newfound ability to speak Spanish.
