    An easy, fun and affortable way to understand and talk spanish! You just download the 2 programs from the CD (the one is just words in different categories eg. numbers, countries, verbs, beverages etc and the other program is how to put those words into sentences.)
    The games, the structure of the page layout, the speaking exercises (you can accually record your own voice!) and the multimedia in general, they all contribute to make your learning interesting!
    I absolutely reccommend it but i will advice you to also have a spanish friend at hand in order to practise what you have learned!

    I need to learn Spanish as my wife is Mexican and I want to converse with my in-laws.
    Sadly I did not find this program at all useful. I have been learning the basics of Spanish from a book, and was looking for some simple software to improve a) My understanding of grammar, e.g. past/future tenses and b) My vocabulary.
    The software tries to be too clever by offering word games such as Crosswords, or "rearrange this sentence". The problem being that anyone with half a brain can work out the answer using logic rather than actually translating the words.
    Also I did not use the speech microphone function as I like to use this on my laptop while the family are watching TV.
    I still get the feeling there is something I missed when I was using this software, but at the price I feel you would be better off buying a couple of books and asking a friend or family member to test you on vocab.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 10 July 2003
    By Allison Benson - Published on Amazon.com
    I Can Speak Spanish is the ideal program for beginner level Spanish speakers. For starters it leads you off with basic grammar and the alphabet which seems like a logical start to learning any language. Then it contains 15 seperate lessons that are all very good and have somewhat of a more personal classroom or course feel. One of the best features is the Before You Know It program which is like having electronic flashcards to practice with and it is really helpful. This is a good program and well worth the buy if you want to learn beginning Spanish.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff 11 Jun. 2003
    By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    This program is really good stuff. It has a lot to teach with 15 lessons and has a flashcard game that is a good program to study with. I was also really impressed with the voice recognition technology that allowed me to compare my pronunciation with that of a native Spanish speakers. This is a good way to learn Spanish and a good buy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, I Can Speak Spanish Now 18 Oct. 2004
    By Gustavo - Published on Amazon.com
    I Love this software. Especially for the Price. For less than $10 how can you beat it. And unlike much of the other Learning Spanish software being sold on the Net, I CAN SPEAK SPANISH will keep you interested. Let's be realistic. If the software is boring you're not going to use it. And no matter good it is at teaching, if it's so boring that you don't use it, then you will not learn.

    You wont have that problem with I Can Speak Spanish. I use it everyday, actually every morning. I am taking another trip to Panama in two months so I want my Spanish to be "mucho mejor"

    And it's really improving. Here's my regimen, upon waking I use the I CAN SPEAK SPANISH software and for my commute to and from work I listen to the LEARNING SPANISH LIKE CRAZY CDs. (I saved a few bucks and ordered the digital download to LEARNING SPANISH LIKE CRAZY and burnt the CDs myself.) After I arrive home, I watch a Spanish speaking soap opera ("novela") and if I am not too tired, before I go to bed, I study a little Italian. But with the two Spanish courses, I seem to be learning Spanish like crazy. Estoy aprendiendo espanol como loco!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good Start! 15 May 2004

    I just got the cd a few days ago, and I've been studying the lessons for two days. This is FUN. Well worth the $9.
    It's very challenging because the lessons are structured so that you can't guess what the answers are or what's coming next. In other words, the cd is teaching you to really LEARN. Now if I could just remember everything ... I'll be speaking spanish!!
    So far, so good. This program is definately worth checking out. I'm very happy with it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most beginner's language programs. 4 Dec. 2004
    By M. R. Simmons - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    This is a good beginners language program that comes with several features to it. There are many ways in which the user can test their knowledge of Spanish with it. The flash-card program is a favorite of mine. It helps you truly understand the vocabulary (by having to type it in), and it teaches you the proper spelling of the words.

    My mother, who is a native Spanish-speaker, pointed out that there were a few minor mistakes in it. Still, and overall, this is one of the easiest, cheapest, and best ways to learn Spanish. I would recommend it to anyone looking to learn Spanish, or build on their skills.
