I decided to this particular course as there didn't seem to be many alternatives & wanted to find out more about the localized differences in Latin American Spanish, whilst learning the basics. I also bought it based on price & description (I'd seen the same course in a high street bookstore for nearly 3x the price!) so was happy with the pack when it arrived.

The chapters & lessons are clearly set out & it seems a well written course book so far with varied excercises to go with the Audio & there are plenty of extra informational weblinks throughout the book! The accompanying CDs are great & feature native Mexican Spanish speaking people but are NOT as described either on the Pack contents itself or on Amazon! The Book is said to be 320 pages on Amazon's description, 384 on the Pack contents but in reality is 356 pages long.... The CDs are said to be 2x 70 Minute CDs but are in fact approx 44 minutes each! I'm not sure if this helps but thought it was worth mentioning; it seems to have got lost in translation oddly enough!

All in all still good value for money & suitable for the first 4 levels of general Spanish, everyday conversation. Would recommend!

3.0 out of 5 stars CD's are pointless 31 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book that has had revisions since its initial publication 1994. The same cant be said for the CD's. They're near useless and they're supposed to be a big selling point of the book. The audio should have been remastered before transferring to CD. The audio is atrocious, especially when native speakers talk. Its as if they have been recorded in a tin shed with a dictaphone sometime back in 1994. The volume level of native speaking and narration is unreliable, almost completely unlistenable. The CD's are advertised as 70 minutes each when in fact they're both near the 40 minute mark. Do yourself a favour and skip buying the audio edition. Save yourself some money and buy the regular version.

Well i didn't realise i had to buy the book with it so it isn't very useful to me at the moment but that's because i'm stupid so i guess if i had the book too (which i currently can't afford) then it'd be very helpful indeed
