    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 "randy310" (Russellville, AR. United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish, Level One with Audio CDs (Mastering Series/Level 1 Compact Disc Packages) (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.

    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

    An excellent teach yourself course

    Barron's Mastering Spanish is terrific! I've studied MANY foreign languages and used a variety of audio tapes to help with my studies. The Barron's series is the best one I've ever encountered. It is true, however, that the course is long and in depth. You will have to devote a lot of time if you want to finish the course. (I've only gotten through the Level 1 course, and it's taken me 2 1/2 months.) I used them in my car, which is the perfect place to listen to them. They require quite a bit of concentration. This series would have rated a solid 5 stars if it weren't for the accompanying book. For some reason, the book presents all of the Spanish in both PHONETIC representation, as well standard Spanish spelling. The phonetics, which are given enormous precedence over the Spanish spellings, are not only useless, they're annoying and distracting! To add insult to injury, the dictionary appendix at the end of the book isn't even in Spanish alphabetical order. It... 4/5 G. Karas (Pasadena, California) - See all my reviews, November 26, 1999

    0 5/5 Katharine Maus (Earlysville, VA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Barron's Mastering Spanish : Hear It, Speak It, Write It, Read It (Foreign Service Institute) (English and Spanish Edition) (Audio Cassette) I'm using the two Barron's tape sets along with the video series, Destinos, to teach myself Spanish. Destinos presents a much wider range of vocabulary and situations, but since (if you're using it on your own) you don't speak back to it, a lot of your learning is passive. The Barron's set gets you into a more active mode. The dialogues can be quite sexist--lots of comments about sexy brunettes, fat girls with glasses, etc.-- and you almost never hear a female speaker. Still, they and the drills are effective and well-designed from a language-learning point of view. The guys on the tapes speak at a realistic pace, not in the exaggerated, artificially slow language typical of beginning language courses--and the drills force you to respond quickly, too. The accompanying book is not terribly informative; for grammar issues I've relied on my knowledge of French and Latin. This probably isn't the best choice for a rank beginner, but if you already know another romance language, or if...

    Mastering Spanish Level 1Review by James

    This is James from James Spanish (the learning Spanish blog). This review relates to the CD version of the course which includes both CDs and a Textbook.If you are dedicated to learning Spanish and truly becoming fluent in the language, then this intensive course is a great choice. Combining both a textbook and audio, the course covers all elements of the Spanish language, from grammar and verbs to vocabulary. Aimed at beginners, working through the course provides a basic foundation in Spanish and most students should be able to hold a basic conversation after working through all of the lessons. The course teaches Spanish as it is spoken by native speakers, providing idiomatic expressions as well as the "proper" words and rules, and is favored by several governmental agencies to give diplomats the necessary language skills to converse with native Spanish speakers from around the world.The combination of text and audio means that you can apply your... 4/5 James Williams "JamesSpanish.com" (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, May 2, 2010

    good method

    Note: This particular link is for the BOOK ONLY so you need to find the other page for the book and audio cds to buy the whole set. But I reviewed it here because I ripped the library cds to my computer and only need the book now. The 2003 2nd edition of the book includes the exercises on the audio cds and also more explanation that isn't on the cds. It isn't your standard High School fill in the blank textbook. The method is more for an adult to grasp important muscle/tongue techniques rather than jumping in with "How do I get to the train station?" It's 678 pages long and that's just level 1. It has a glossary of vocabulary that is in alphabetical order including phonetic pronunciation. It advances to basic present tense conjugation of verbs but pronunciation is an emphasis....I borrowed this from the library and have decided one thing I agree with the government on is how to learn a language.

    0 4/5 Bob (Pittsburgh, PA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish, Level 1: Hear It, Speak It, Write It, Read It (Spanish Edition) (Paperback) This Barron's book with CD's is just as good as attending Spanish class. Everything you read is also present on the CD's. It focuses on having you speak Spanish by repeating lines or answering questions with the CDs. The book also contains a phonetic spelling of everything that is said, which I didn't use often because it takes some skill to read these phonetic symbols. But if you were alone with the book and not the CDs these spellings could allow you to proceed. There is also a volume 2 book with CDs. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 2, 2008

    0 4/5 John(marchant@acy.digex.net) (Southern NJ, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering a Spanish Vocabulary: A Thematic Approach (Mastering Vocabulary) (Spanish Edition) (Paperback) I find this book to be very good. It offers 5500 words or so for a person to learn which is more than enough to cover general conversation on any theme, explain any thought, and say anything that is not deeply technical. A typical person's vocabulary is between 12,000-15,000 words though many of them are not used. This book is great-it is organized by themes and has more advanced words in gray. I recently got this book and find that it rounds out my vocabulary. I recommend this one and 1,001 Pitfalls in Spanish by Barron's. Both are absolutely essential for native English speakers. In fact, those two books and a lot of reviewing is adequate in my estimation for anyone with very little background in Spanish to rise to a level of fluency achieved by a small percentage of the 'gringos' who try to learn it. I'd give it a '10' except I think it would be neat to have even more vocabulary-perhaps 8000 words to involve more technical and medical terms, etc. They also try to stick to fairly...

    Powerful, but...

    ...capable of producing some fairly alarming editing errors, for one. Things like "To abrigo es distinto..."A second important item of note to potential purchasers is that the book assumes you have THE ENTIRE VERB SYSTEM down cold. Each of the 41 sections of the book has 'standard' and 'advanced' sections of vocabulary. But Word 1 in the standard list could fire off an example that features a sentence that combines conditional and subjunctive imperfect tenses. After all, it's a vocabulary - and not grammar - book. But just make sure you know that going in.Third point - I can't figure out what make a word or expression worthy of 'advanced' vs. 'standard.' I'm just opening up to a random page (p. 338) as I write this review, and I see the words 'apenas,' 'mayor,' and 'menor' in the advanced section, while 'de ninguna manera' sits in the standard. Odd, huh?Despite all these objections, this book is really a good edition to your library. Its triumph is... 3/5 0, May 20, 2002

    0 2/5 Business Translator (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mastering Spanish Business Vocabulary: A Thematic Approach (Paperback) I am a business translator, and have bought every English-Spanish dictionary published for almost 25 years now. This dictionary has only 3,500 entries, and was translated in 1997 from a 1995 German book. Hence, the book is not current, is very limited in scope, and worse of all, not even oriented towards English or Spanish.I gave it two stars because its sample sentences may be helpful for beginners. This book will be of no use to anyone of an intermediate of advanced level in either language. It is completely inadequate for business translators.I recommend your buying one or both of the following: Webster's New World English-Spanish/Spanish-English Business Dictionary, or The Oxford Spanish Business Dictionary. If you only need one, then buy Webster's New World English-Spanish/Spanish-English Business Dictionary. Do not buy Mastering Spanish Business Vocabulary : A Thematic Approach, unless you are aware of and accept these limitations. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 11, 2006
