    5/5 dudeanonymous (MD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastering Spanish Vocabulary with Audio MP3: A Thematic Approach (Barron's Foreign Language Guides) (Paperback) i love how barron's presents their vocab thematically. i also love that this book comes with an audio mp3 disc and includes sentences that enable you to learn the words in useful contexts.because i don't think enough info is provided regarding the mp3s, i'll tell you about them. the mp3s simply state the spanish words/phrases/example sentences in the order that they appear in the book. the english counterparts aren't stated. so basically the mp3s are useful as a pronunciation guide, to improve listening comprehension, and for review.

    Red ink is a problem, otherwise great

    I purchased this as an aid for a Spanish conversation class I'm taking and am very pleased with its general layout, grouping terms by category. I was also pleased to see it has an index, so that if you are not sure what name they would give the topic you want, but know one term that belongs in it, you can look up the term and find the page(s) with more on-topic vocabulary.The vocabulary CD that came with the book nicely provides native pronunciation of the vocabulary, grouped by topic as in the book. (I haven't checked to see how complete it is, but it seems to track the book with both terms and examples.) Note that the CD does not provide English translation, however, and so cannot be used for self-testing of active recollection of terminology, but it will adequately reinforce the passive recognition of it. (A big plus is that it does not have the ubiquitous beep, which is so annoying in the CD accompanying Barron's 501 Spanish Verbs!)That being said, I... 4/5 Pen name - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish Vocabulary with Audio MP3: A Thematic Approach (Barron's Foreign Language Guides) (Paperback) I purchased this as an aid for a Spanish conversation class I'm taking and am very pleased with its general layout, grouping terms by category.

    I am rather disappointed with this book

    2/5 J. Stearns (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mastering Spanish Vocabulary with Audio MP3: A Thematic Approach (Barron's Foreign Language Guides) (Paperback) I am rather disappointed with this book. The layout is fine but the major problem I have is that the sentence structures are generally not accurate and the word choices are not accurate, especially for Latin American Spanish. The book tries to distinguish when a word is Latin American or Spanish in its usage, but it doesn't seem very accurate. Several of my Spanish speaking friends have looked at the book and said that they would not say or write things the way they are in the book.

    Mastering Spanish, Level One with Audio CDs (Mastering Languages Series)

    Book (Barron's Educational Series)

    Rating (30 reviews):
    (3.6/5)
    Barron's Educational Series

    New cover, same content

    I originally learned Spanish years ago with the Foreign Service Institute Basic Course in Spanish, and purchased Barron's previous edition of "Mastering Spanish" a couple of years ago thinking it would be easier to use than the original. What I found was that it was a copy of the 1957 original--but the page sizes had been photographically reduced from letter-size to 9" x 7", making the text very small and difficult to read. The previous edition of Barron's Mastering Spanish on Amazon had numerous reviews, many of which pointed out usability problems: small, indistinct text; too-fast and sometimes indistinct speech on the audio; an intrusive and not useful phonetic alphabet which dominated and sometimes replaced the normal Spanish; and a preponderance of political/military situations and vocabulary inappropriate for most users. By comparing Barron's with the FSI original, I found that Barron's is nothing more than a photocopy of the old original; the audio is also a copy.My... 2/5 Randy (Russellville, AR. United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish, Level One with Audio CDs (Mastering Languages Series) (Audio CD) As others have said this course is only for those who are serious about learning spanish and are not afraid of working their asses off to do it. There is no silver bullet. Learning a foreign language is tough and not for lightweight learners. This is the heavyweight division folks. No you will not master this while doing other activities. When you were in college did you expect to learn calculus, physics, or other heavy duty courses while driving to the bar? I think not! You are going to have to use the book with the cd's in a quiet place without distractions every day. This course is going to drill you like being in boot camp in the Marine Corps. There are a variety of different types of drills that will drill this material deep into your DNA and when you master it and the next three levels after it you will be able to handle yourself in all but the most technical of situations. If you have no background in Spanish I would reccomend pimsleur first. I would also supplement...

    Hard work produces results...

    I have an older edition with 12 audio tapes. As pointed out elsewhere, the "textbook" is a reduced version of the original, and is clogged by the most annoying amount of transliterations. I find the drills really valuable, and feel like I am actually SPEAKING Spanish instead of reading it. I feel it is well worth the price, assuming you have the perserverance (sp?) to stick with it, and it does require disipline. If you did the three courses through to the bitter end while drilling the vocabulary separately, you would know a ton of Spanish.From a learning perspective, the most difficult thing about tapes (and maybe even the CDs, although I have no direct experience and Barron's was not much help when I inquired) is their lack of usable indexing. If, say, each tape is gone over from start to finish 4 times, there are yet sections which require many more repititions. To do this on a "walkman" tape player is difficult at best. Here is where the... 3/5 0, April 23, 2003

    Spanish Learning Made Easy

    I have studied Spanish at the college level before, but since then have not had the opportunity to practice speaking or writing except in informal settings with friends, while traveling, etc. So when I needed to speak with a Spanish client for business, I found my conversation and writing skills somewhat lacking. I turned to "The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice" after having it recommended to me by a few business associates. After one month of working intensively through the book, I feel much more confident in my formal Spanish skills. The book is well thought out, organized into 28 chapters, each focusing on a different topic. Starting with the present tense of verbs and other basic language topics and progressing through the subjunctive and other advanced forms, it provides a comprehensive text to learn and perfect both oral and written Spanish. The explanations and examples of each topic are very clear, and the exercises provide a challenging test of the... 5/5 A.T.S., International Consulting Group (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice: Mastering Spanish Grammar for Confident Communication (Paperback) I have studied Spanish at the college level before, but since then have not had the opportunity to practice speaking or writing except in informal settings with friends, while traveling, etc. So when I needed to speak with a Spanish client for business, I found my conversation and writing skills somewhat lacking.

    Thorough review and great practical exercises

    As a Spanish teacher I was delighted to find such a grammar gem on the market for Spanish students at all levels. I bought the book with the intention of using it as a guide and review of many difficult grammar concepts in Spanish and I definitely was pleased with the grammar material and brief cultural readings that are included in the book. The book covers all key grammar concepts that must be mastered in order to speak Spanish confidently and with superior grammar control. The book contains twenty-eight valuable chapters in which key grammar concepts such as verb conjugation and verb usage, tenses and moods of verbs, the passive voice and other key elements are analyzed. The heavy emphasis on verbs and verb usage is indicative of the quality of this book especially since the ability to conjugate and use verbs correctly are the key to mastering any language. The practice exercices are also very valuable and readily force the student to apply the knowledge learned in the chapter thus... 5/5 Marianopolita2005 - See all my reviews This review is from: The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice: Mastering Spanish Grammar for Confident Communication (Paperback) As a Spanish teacher I was delighted to find such a grammar gem on the market for Spanish students at all levels.

    A Lot of Book for the Money.

    5/5 Steve Irons (Minneapolis, MN United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Ultimate Spanish Review and Practice: Mastering Spanish Grammar for Confident Communication (Paperback) If you have already studied Spanish and want to strengthen your skills, this is the book for you. It would also be a good supplementary text for first, second and third year students of college level Spanish. Better than most books that cost twice it's price, it not only gives you clear, well thought-out, and well organized descriptions of all the essential grammar points in Spanish, it also includes copious exercises to drive the points home. This "workbook" aspect of the book is an invaluable asset, since once you have understood the grammar point, you still need to practice it a bit make it second nature. I guarantee that if you work you way through this whole book and absorb its contents, you'll have a very good grasp of Spanish indeed. Coupled with something like the Pimsleur courses, a person could get quite fluent is six months of solid daily study.

    Mastering Spanish II

    In general I found this course excellent. I have a few criticisms which in my view reduce it's rating from 4.5/5 to 4 star. They are:The print size and apparent random font selection. The print is often too small and the font changes are a little irritating.The quality of the CDs is excellent but it would have been much more convenient to the user if each lesson had a separate CD. This would probably have required only one additional CD.An "open flat" binding would have made the book easier to use and more durable for frequent and on-going use.On each page a phonetic rendering of the Spanish text is given which occupies almost 50% of the book. At this level, phonetic support should be unnecessary and by omitting it the size of the book could be much reduced or the freed up space used more productively.For some reason, only the narrative following lesson 16 is recorded. For little extra CD space all the post-lesson dialogues... 4/5 RoyG (New Zealand) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish Level Two: Audio CD Package (Mastering Series/Level 2 Compact Disc Packages) (Audio CD) In general I found this course excellent.

    Mastering Spanish Level Two

    GENERAL: This is the continuation of the Level One course. All of the comments to this course apply to level one. The course starts with the introduction of the subjuntive mood via drills.STRENGTHS: This audio is excellent in terms of verbal drills. The exercises train the mind and body in applying grammatical rules. By replaying sections of the CD, it is possible to train not only the mind, but the tongue and mouth to speak Spanish clearly with minimum English accent.Being forced to vary sentence structure in the exercises, translate from English to Spanish and build sentences using phrases are exemplary in inculcating Spanish into the subconscious.The lessons present many nuiances of speaking Spanish, particularly intonation patterns, which are not presented in any other course.WEAKNESSES: Readers are primarily Mexican and have strong Mexican accents. Voice tones of a couple of the readers are very similar and it is difficult... 4/5 Jim Lilly (Minnesota) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Mastering Spanish Level 2 Review by James

    This is James from James Spanish (the learning Spanish blog). This course really helps you to learn to use Spanish more fluently.The grammar is taught through drills (although tedious at times) rather than dry rules and tables, which is an interesting and natural way to learn. If you are tired of repeating lists of verb conjugations and memorizing boring rules, then this approach will be a refreshing change.Although there are still plenty of drills and exercises to help you remember various grammatical concepts, there are also sample conversations and short, concise dialogues about the concepts which present the information in a more informal and accessible way.The workbook which accompanies the audio contains all of the audio scripts, as well as being packed with lots of other useful information.Grammar provides a structure for language, and a good solid knowledge of grammatical concepts make speaking and understanding Spanish much... 3/5 James Williams (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, December 14, 2009
