La Llamada De La Habana
La Llamada De La Habana
by Neus Sans
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.15

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful, 26 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
helpful to squeeze in a bit more Spanish learning when driving. Still quite hard but spoken clearly and not too fast. Short chapters (very short book) but I needed them to be short as had to play most chapters several times to pick up most of the Spanish.

Perfecting the Past in Spanish
Perfecting the Past in Spanish
by Mr Gordon Smith-Duran
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful and a good book for all levels, 26 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought all of the books by these teachers. They are very clear and informal and as other reviewers have said it is helpful to get explanations from an English speaker who has learnt Spanish and who understands some of the blocks and difficulties. Some may not gel with his humour, but it is not intrusive and underneath all of it you sense a passion for helping us to understand.
I think you still need to have a standard grammar book to go alongside this (I use the Collins one) but there are more examples and explanations in this book and lots of exercises! It has only just arrived so I am only partway through and although I am at lower intermediate level I am still learning new and helpful things in the first third of the book and I can see that there are some useful and challenging sections ahead. I think it is a good book for near beginners as well so they can get some basic ideas sorted as early as possible, this book will help. Have also found their website and podcast helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars really useful, 25 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just found the lightspeed spanish website and found it very helpful. Am working my way through this book . It all makes sense to me so far. I have the BBC and Collins grammar books that I like and my Open University textbooks but this book goes into the subjunctive in greater depth and there are lots of practice sentences. I haven't used any other 'practice subjunctive' books so can't compare but don't think i will need to look beyond this book (at B1/2 level).

This review is from: Talk Spanish Grammar (Paperback)
Clear and thorough with little exercises at the end of the chapter. Good explanations and good examples. I have used this for my OU course (En Rumbo) and find it much easier to understand than the OU recommended grammar book.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
such a beautiful book. The reproductions are clear and I love the paper it is printed on. I am no expert on this painter so cannot comment on whether it is a good representation of his work or not. i will buy this for others as a present as it looks so special and unusual.
Only fault is that the inner margin is too narrow so hard to fully open out each page.
