My Take on the Book
It has been about 20 years since I studied Spanish and I always have regretted this in the past. For me, with how many people that I meet daily that speak multiple languages, I am saddened that I too do not have this ability, but it is never too late to learn. The challenge for me is always time. I am on the go constantly so carving out time with many of the programs out there simply does not work because I do not have the time to be tied to my computer. That is why this program is so great. With the fact that the program is completely set in CD's I can take them on the go, listen to them on my commute to and from work, or use in other ways on the go. This works perfectly for me and for my time.

The program also was easy to follow and I liked that the program uses a formal foundation for the Spanish that it is teaching. While I know there is a lot of dialects, this gave me a great foundation to at least start with so that I could start conversing with my students and others that I know. Now that I am in the midst of working on Spanish I, I am also thinking about using Spanish II to keep the learning coming.

While I know that I am not an expert yet, this program is moving me in the right direction and it will help you too.
