4.0 out of 5 stars Colloquial Spanish, 29 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Colloquial Spanish: The Complete Course for Beginners (Routledge Colloquials) (Paperback)
I like this type of language book because it teaches the language in a systematic way, each layer slowly building onto the previous one. The exercises are useful and help to reinforce learning. I imagine this book might not be best suited to some younger people unless they like learning in the systematic way of a previous generation. However, if one takes the time and effort to work through this book a good understanding of the language should emerge with apposite use of grammar and modern usage of words and phrases. I found that I was quickly able to use Spanish in a correct way in letters (albeit on a small scale). It was a much more useful book than the one I currently use at nightschool, that seems more geared to young people and their social contacts. While I appreciate that language teaching has to 'move with the times,' sometimes this seems to be at the expense of a good grounding in grammar. 'Colloquial Spanish' addresses this problem and balances the needs of an older generation with the needs of the young.
