What was one of the most memorable moments of Spanish Short Stories for Beginners?

All the way through, this book was just perfect. Overall, i liked very much the narrator, his speech is clear and you can understand everything. Juan`s story about friends and living in London was really good.

Have you listened to any of Lucia Bodas and Abel Franco ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first book but will definitely browse for more.

Any additional comments?

I am just preparing for a short holiday in Madrid and this book is of great help. Although I did study Spanish in university, I found myself unable to hold a decent conversation after all these years. Been listening to the short stories in the last couple of days and I can honestly say my Spanish is now as good as it was back then. It truly helps with the pronunciation given it is an audiobook. Not to mention the narrator is fantastic! It is all on my Iphone so I can listen to it at home, at work during my breaks and I am definitely planning to keep on listening to the stories on my flight out. Would recommend!

Good Book!

Any additional comments?

As a person who learned Spanish long ago It was quite refreshing to brush up my Spanish skills, even though my level is a beginner. For those who are looking to listen to Spanish language being spoken slowly look no more! I know that when you are just learning Spanish it is very hard to grasp Spanish people speaking, as they speak fast and with an accent. This book will help you to get used to listen and comprehend the Spanish language.

After the short story, there is a translation, which is amazing! As you don’t have to translate it yourself. Also, there is a vocabulary, which gives you the words and their translation.

The narration is slow, understandable and distinct. The recording is clear and of good quality, gives you pleasure listening to Spanish. Would recommend to somebody who wants to listen to Spanish language and learn some new words, as you can actually hear each one of them!
