It takes more than a century of experience in language instruction to develop a learning plan this focused…this simple…this BASIC!

Even if you are less than comfortable with formal, traditional classroom methods of learning any language "by the book"…the Berlitz step-by-step method will have you conversing with ease, in only a few enjoyable hours. The key is speaking aloud…repeating…and building confidence as you build an everyday working vocabulary.

This complete Spanish course includes:

  • three 60-minute audio cassettes
  • a 185-page study guide…complete with texts, simple rules of grammar, notes, and exercises
  • lively, listen and repeat "sound scenes"…covering everyday topics such as greetings, telling time, counting, changing money, and getting directions

Don't be confused by the Barnes & Noble listing. This is NOT volume 3 of a series. This is a single volume, 3 tape basic Spanish course. The book is a guide but, the key is the taped lessons. They are entirely in Spanish but, the context of the dialogues and the guidebook make it very easy to learn. I have used the superb Pimsleur course to study another language. Pimsleur uses English in the lessons and includes no appreciable guidebook. Pimsleur is exellent but, this Berlitz course is a tremendous bargain at less than $30.00. Each lesson, in the Berlitz, is only about 7 minutes long and a lot of fun. I find that the pace is non intimidating which is important for someone like me who never was good at picking up languages. I recommend the course highly.
