The comic like format of this book makes it ideal to dip in and out of. Ideal for beginners and as a refresher when you need it. The basics are covered and a little bit more in a lighthearted way.

I'm just working slowly through 'Spanish for Beginners' and thoroughly enjoying it. The pictures and the repetition of phrases helps it stick in my mind. The way the grammar is introduced slowly and then built upon makes it easier to understand and remember. The interactive style combined with the web links makes for interest. As a first Spanish book it is excellent.

This is an absolute must for anyone beginning to learn Spanish. Unlike other books, it does not try to market itself as the best way of learning a modern language. It just provides the goods. It has colourful and stimulating pictures to help you remember new vocabulary and test yourself. It does not overload you with too much vocabulary at a time. It is backed up by an excellent CD which you can go over and over, repeating each section until you are word and phrase perfect. It also begins to explain simple present tense verb conjugations and helps you to learn them without overwhelming you with technical descriptions of grammar. My only regret about this excellent, fairly priced book is that there is no book 2, book 3 or book 4. There are a lot of people out there marketing over-priced language courses and trying to pull the wool over your eyes. This is good, simple, honest, and well-priced material which is a pleasure to use for adults and children alike.

I bought this book to give me a brief introduction to Spanish to add to the enjoyment of Spanish holiday. It comes compete with a CD giving the pronunciation to words and phrases used in the lessons. Learning is reinforced with pictures and there is a basic introduction to grammar. This course aims to make learning Spanish fun. An excellent guide for the absolute beginner.

A very good starter guide to anyone who - like me - knows very little Spanish. Gives a good wide ranging selection of key words. It is also linked with the Usborne website that gives additional helps.

If you are a beginner, you will probably find this quite tricky! It's a reasonably well presented book which my 5 year old likes bit personally I'm not sure it is laid out in the friendliest way. It uses cartoons to show use of phrases but isn't always clear as to what the sentences used are, you have keywords to refer back to in the columns but I would prefer a more obvious direct translation. Good for curious minds to learn a few basic words and phrases but wouldn't suggest for someone wishing to attain a greater grasp of the lingo.

Have been learning Spanish via an app on my iPad but wanted a book which provided and general overview to just refresh my memory every now and then. This really is a book for beginners but I would say the style is generally geared towards kids due to the use of lots of pictures and overall style.

I haven't used it in conjunction with the internet as I bought it as an 'offline' reference which it is working perfectly as. For the price it's a good value book and although it's unlikely you're going to be speaking fluent Spanish after reading this, you will at least have a good grasp of the basics.
