Dreadful - don't waste your money
2 December 2004
I was excited by the concept, not that it is a new one. However the way the book is put together it is destroyed.
Fair enough, use association to learn words, but if you don't know how to say the spanish word, or just use words that vaguely sound like the spanish word it isn't going to work.
That is the concept, make it up yourself. It is much better if you do it yourself, and put some logic in it.
The associations are really cringy, american and probably not very useful. There is no link between english and spanish derivations, or other languages, no handy hints for spotting words.
For example: if you wanted to remember that cat is gato then think of a cat in a cake..gateaux. The book would say something like think of a circular gate - gate-o which of course is nothing like the pronouncian.
Sorry to be damming but its not even a long book.. beware
