Excellent method to teach tourist Spanish
on 30 June 2004
I have used TALK SPANISH to teach Spanish for holidays and have found it extremely useful. It covers all the necessary travel elements a student needs, is well graded and has plenty of useful exercises. Grammar is well explained and the tapes are lively and easy to follow. They are ideal for self-learning.
The only snag is that the course has been designed with the audio-learner in mind. Therefore it has little text and the lay out is somewhat dull, lacking in pictures or colour. If the BBC were to create a pictorial version of this book, it would sell like hot cakes. At present, there are very few tourist Spanish courses on the market, and this is an excellent product.
I have learnt some Greek using the Greek version and have found it equally approachable.
