This book is entertaining to read, and a great way for those who had some Spanish to re-polish it. The best thing is that it is not boring, and I really enjoyed reading it during my vacation -- and learn. Similar comments from two friends!

Starts great, super simple and easy to follow, most encouraging. However, after a few pages it starts on the kind of complicated grammar that a linguist is used to, but if you are grappling with trying to get a foothold on another language for the first time, you would quickly find yourself out of your depth and put this book to one side.

Bottom line:If you already understand grammatical terms. yes, by all means this is recommended, but not for a first-time learner.

I like the language learning method in this book written by the late Charles Berlitz, it assumes no knowledge of the language and teaches you the language in bite sized chucks. The market it caters for is the articulate reader who does not have the time or the desire to attend a more formal class. My brother and I use this book as a textbook for an informal Spanish Language practice class we have once a week. I have studied Spanish at school to a higher level, Scottish Education, so I know grammer and how the language sounds but like most language teaching in this country fluency in speaking the language does not seem it be emphisised.
The only cricicism I can say about the book is that Latin American Spanish is emphisised but that could be explained by the American readership this book was intended for, foot notes in the book explain that sellos for stamps is the word used in Spain as estampillas is used in Mexico and Latin America.
This is a good book if you know the language and just want a quick revision of grammer points or learn something about the language but to learn a language properly you must live in that country and converse with the native population and do not live in an expatriot ghetto, eating fish and chips and drinking warm British Beer, in the Spanish Costas.

I have been reading, and learning from step by step for a year. It has taught me so much spanish because I have let it. It should be used while using other materials and resources. I know more spanish than people who have studied for a few years. I am now able to help my son with his spanish homework. This book is wonderful.

Format: Paperback
This book is made up mostly of a long list of sentences in Spanish with the translation and transliteration (how to pronounce it) following. Interspersed are short descriptions of grammar or other useful information.
It's sometimes hard to figure out which word means what. This book was written as if people could just memorize a bunch of sentences and put them together to say whatever they want. But it's much better to teach us words and teach us how to put them together in order to say what we want. The book is written as if long discussions of grammar are too boring. But I think we need about twice as much explanation in order to really know what we're saying.
It's great to have the transliteration there in case we get confused, but it's too easy to ignore the Spanish and just read the transliteration aloud. Certainly, at some point we should have a clue and no longer need this crutch. (The book does actually explain how to pronounce each letter at the beginning, so transliterations through the entire book should not be necessary.)
Too much mindless memorization is required to learn from this book, and when you're done, you don't really know that much.
If you're trying to get one of the famous Berlitz books, this probably isn't it. On the cover, it says "Charles Berlitz [the author] . . . is the grandson of the founder of the Berlitz Schools. Since 1967, Mr. Berlitz has not been connected with the Berlitz Schools in any way."
Don't get this book!
