Product Description

Review

I have a bookshelf full of Spanish language learning tools (books, CD's, flashcards), and they seem useless now that I am using SmartSpanish... --Music Critic, Belmont, MA USA

These cds were like the missing piece of my spanish education --Greg Oelke, MO

… shortly after starting listening to the cds, playing them over a few times, my listening comprehension increase dramatically. This is really a major turning point for me… I am now conversing much more on the job, with much more confidence. I believe these cds were the key. What a great product. I wish I had them years ago. --Greg Oelke, Sprinfield

Having recently decided to make a return trip to Spain next year, and remembering the difficulties I had getting along with my "text book Spanish", I began to scour the internet searching for a new and different type of Spanish course I could take that would enlighten me as to the REAL Spanish spoken there and around the world. This would be the conversational Spanish that you hear on the streets, on the radio, in the hotel, in the clubs, on the streets, in the cafe's and whereever else you venture to go. SMARTSPANISH IS THE ANSWER.
You are provided with a CD of Spanish conversations that you can listen to , watch on video if you prefer, read the transcripts or not, and listen in to the helpful hints on how to pronounce correctly what you hear and tricks and trades to making even YOUR spoken Spanish sound as smooth as the Spanish do! (There is also included a booklet with the conversations available if you choose to follow along that way instead of on the computer screen)
Lets face it, the Spanish you learned in High School or College is not going to go far when you find yourself in a Spanish speaking country or city like Madrid or Mexico City and everyone seems to be talking at twice the speed you were accustomed to hearing in school or reading in books! THIS COURSE WILL HELP YOU TREMENDOUSLY. Satisfaction is GUARANTEED!

Smart Spanish is a collection of interviews with native Spanish speakers (some Latin American, some from Spain), who talk in a natural way about real-life topics -- photojournalism, relocation of a historic house, starting up a baguette business. There is no donde esta the library.

You hear each interview once at normal speed, and the teacher repeats it four or five times at slower speed. The CDs are formatted so you can skip a repetition if you don't need it. Because the interviews are unscripted, grammar points are explained as they come up (first interview jumps straight into past tense -- "This is how it happened..."). For this reason, you may want to have a "basics of Spanish" textbook for reference.

After six weeks with this course I saw a very satisfying improvement in my ability to "hear" phrases and everyday expressions, which seemed a blur before...

The real-life quality becomes a source of enjoyment as you go through the interviews -- the unfinished sentences, the noises in the background, the ways people tell their stories. ("You left your children with the coyotes?" gasps the interviewer. In reply, the woman manages to say, without actually saying it, "I'm not a bad mother.") It's like reading Studs Terkel's Working.

Ive been using the whole range of SmartFrench products for some months now and am sure it is the best language course i have ever tried in book,cd or cd rom form.
I would recommend starting with the introduction cd's before tackling the beginner version.The introduction cd's need repeated listening ,usually this is where it all falls apart (i found repeated listening to Michael Thomas cd's extremely difficult due to his strange accent ,pompous manner and wierd exchanges between his two students )i have listened to the smartfrench cd's some 11 or 12 times and still find them quite fresh and Christian Aubert's accent easy to listen to .
Having worked on verbs,numbers and vocabulary from the introduction cd's i find i can express most of the things i want to say without a struggle.I have also used the Penguin Parallel French texts to suppliment my listening and ahve found these useful but not terribly relevent are much of the vocabulary is quite obscure , maybe Christian Aubert should write a Smart French parallel text book ,i would certainly buy that.
I am now working on the beginner conversations which are similarly fascinating (peopled by a wig maker ,a chef,a model and various other real french people ,boring it is'nt ) the emphasis being on listening and speaking rather than reading.
The cd rom is extremely easy to navigate around and as for reading smartfrench for travellers will be going with me when i go to Paris and the Dordogne this year as it is packed withvery useful phrases.
On the stregnth of Smartfrench i purchased SmartsSpanish and was delighted to find it followed the same format using a native Sanish speaker and real Spanish people ,the attention to detail is the same and i am looking forward to exploring the product in greater detail in the near future.
