It worked for me!,
This review is from: SmartSpanish Audio CDs Int/Adv. - Learning Spanish from Real Natives (CD-ROM)
I have to admit that I could say a few things in Spanish but that I could not understand anything. SmartSpanish has put me into the real world, teaching me conversation skills. As it uses regular conversations, I liked to know that what I was working on was really being used. We are generally taught to speak in a formal way. But do we speak our own language that way? Now I understand why I could not understand.
It is always possible to learn Spanish by learning a few sentences or learn grammar and conjugation. But I am glad I discovered these CDs to use in conjunction with my books. I have developed an awareness of how people speak in Spain and South America and it has given me a lot of confidence in that regard. Bravo!
