    Fun to read

    Read and Think Spanish is a compilation of 117 articles from the publishers of Think! Spanish, with about a 4th of these articles included in the audio CD and read by native speakers. This product is a little difficult to categorize. The articles are delightful and give you a thorough overview of Latino culture and history. I recommend them to anyone, especially advanced students seeking to improve their listening skills. There are lessons and exercises included in this package as well, with the main emphasis being vocabulary, but there doesn¿t seem to be a well thought out methodology for teaching. Overall, I view this as a nice entertainment package that incidentally allows you to learn a few things in a very relaxing manner. I can recommend it as an addition to an already well stocked Spanish language library, but if you want to break into this stuff for real, the Learning Spanish Like Crazy course is the way to go.
