Unbelievably effective!

As a complete beginner to Spanish I was expecting this audiobook to maybe teach me the alphabet, some numbers, some basic greeting ... it did so much more than that! I listened to the recording in the car on the way to work and even after the first 30 minutes, I was able to put together some very sophisticated sentence structures and understood, based on common letter patterns and cognates, how to construct many more. Michel Thomas' style of teaching and the use of two students in the recording ensures that you quickly learn how to build up full, very useful, sentences, as well as understand what not to do (as the students make exactly the same mistakes that you will!) I would whole-heartedly recommend it.

Really excellent way of learning espanol for me.

Would you be willing to try another book from Michel Thomas? Why or why not?

Yes. I really like this way of learning languages. Given basic words or ways of saying things and then having to work out how to say phrases from these. Great learning in a kind of problem solving way where the mind naturally picks up and remembers things from almost working out/realising and teaching itself, rather than repetition.
Works well for my mind and memory that way.
