2.0 out of 5 stars Simple and ineffective 31 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This product adopts a very simplistic approach to studying verbs, just hours and hours of someone reciting verb conjugations with the unexplained omission of second person pluriel. There is no attempt to put tenses in context, teach usage, or put emphasis on irregular verbs, so you have to sit through 45 minutes of regular verbs that all conjugate the same before getting to the irregular ones that are hard to remember.
It's still a decent way to learn conjugation but it's disappointing they didn't even make a token effort to add some structure, insight, or interest into their presentation.

4.0 out of 5 stars buy it! 1 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
after reading some reviews i was reluctant to buy this. but whilst i have been learning spanish the vocab has been fairly easy but the conjugation and meaning of verbs was not sinking in. this cd has helped to put the bones into the language. yes it is a bit repetetive but what else can it be? all learning has a mundane but necessary aspect and this is. but it works, you learn quickly and even if you switch off mentally for a while, you can easily slide back into it. after only 2 listens i tested myself and was amazed how much i had learned. the omission of the second person plural is inconvenient but no big deal really.

3.0 out of 5 stars Effective - but boring 22 April 2004
By Amjra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD for those who want to memorize verb tenses. The CD is a little boring, as it is simply one woman who conjugates verbs, and then gives an english translation for each one. Each tense is done in order, then starting with the -ar verbs, then -er verbs then -ir verbs. It is the verbal equivelent of reading the 501 Spanish verbs book outloud! Note: the second person plural form, or the vos form, is not given. This form is mainly used in Spain.

Ex: Hablo - I speak
Hablas - You speak
Habla - He/She/You speak
Hablamos - We speak
Hablan - They speak

They go alphabetically from there. This covers the present, preterite, imperfect, future perfect, and present progressive (I think). There are no phrases, sentences nor context given, only cojugated verbs. This is much better than writing verbs over and over again, and good for learning some new verbs, but take it for what it is. A little maddening to listen to, but a good review if you need some intensive memorization. Better for the more advanced student, who is learning tenses past the present tense. The most annoying part of this CD is that after every conjugation, the english equivalent is given. For example:
"Hablo, I speak, Hablas, you speak" The half english in the forms is really annoying after awhile. The listener does not become immersed in the spanish experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars In Defense...Mimicking 501 Verbs in Audio Form 7 April 2005
By NerdMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As the author I don't pretend to be objective, but allow me to offer a defense to the stucture of the program. Basically I set out to create an audio version of the most popular Spanish book ever written: 501 Spanish Verbs.

Nearly all audio programs attempting to teach you Spanish offer some type of verbs used in sentences or some other context. That was never the goal of the program. In fact, quite the opposite. Part of learning verbs requires memorization - as boring as that may sound. But the program also teaches patterns and encourages the listener to visualize as well - something several of the less than generous reviewers here have failed to mention. I've had hundreds of customers write that my verbs programs have been enormously helpful for them, but I think it's because they didn't expect more from the program than what it offered: a chance to practice and memorize the most important verbs, as well as the patterns related to these verbs, in order to jump start your ability to conjugate new verbs on the fly.

Now the guy who complains about small tidits of humor and suggest there is idle chatter - must be offended quite easily! There is very little chatter indeed - and any tidbits of humor are there because 99% of the students who would use the program find that tidbits of humor make the learning process more fun.

Don't buy this program if you are looking for an immersion experience, or want a presentation of the Spanish language in full context. Rather, if you want verbs and only verbs - and a quick, light way to learn them through audio with a bit of music in between to liven it up - then Spanish Verbs 101 may be for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars It would work if they made one change 2 Nov 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There is one big problem that renders this program worthless (other than just being boring). Namely, it gives you the answer before it asks the question. In all other Spanish tapes and CD's there is an English statement or word followed by the same statement or word in Spanish. That way, you are constantly testing yourself and thinking about the material. This program works in reverse. That is, the Spanish verb form is stated twice, e.g., yo hablo, which is then followed once by the English equivalent, e.g., I speak.

For that reason, there is nothing to think about or try to remember as you go through the program. If you had to think about your answer for even a second before you answered, it would take an awful lot of the monotony out of the program, and you would learn the material a lot faster.

If the author made just this one change and reversed the order of the English and Spanish phrases so the CD's said the English form once, e.g., I speak, followed by the Spanish form twice, e.g., yo hablo, this would have been a very useful and effective program. As it is, the program is pretty worthless.

I would be willing to bet if you injected the author with truth serum that this was a boo-boo made when the CD's were finalized just prior to being put on the shelves. Therefore, perhaps the author could fix it with a second (useful) version, which would be free or discounted in exchange for the current version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much spanish - a lot of english 4 Oct 2011
By asli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am listening to the 3rd CD. It annoys me that they skipped the conjugation for 2nd plural (hablais etc.)
w/o really mentioning anything about it . In addition if you had to count the amount of spoken spanish versus english words it would be 25% spanish 75% english. It's annoying that the meaning is translated for each conjugated verb 6 times!!! I prefer to hear faster spanish conjugation one after another to get the feel of it. repeating /memorizing the end suffixes w/o the verb is also not the way , I prefer to learn . it will head to the garbage bin after I am done this week. Nothing you want to keep.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this CD!! 13 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This audio demonstrates a "nuts and bolts' philosophy to spanish verbs. It is based on repetition, to the most common verbs - (the "back bone" of any language) However, it may be disappointing for one who wants more dialogue and examples of sentence structure, but for one who is looking to strengthen their verb skill - this is an awesome CD!!
