One of my long-life dreams has been to learn to speak Spanish. I finally retired, I said to myself: “This is it, now is the time = Y por fin aprende español” I registered for a Spanish class / I went on line / I searched for language podcasts / ….and I was rewarded big time when I discovered a real gem in Spanish A+ y por fin aprende español. It was mid-July 2008 and I downloaded podcasts after podcasts and played them over and over. I was retired so I didn’t want extra expenses so I didn’t pay attention to the membership part of the podcast. One day I heard Jade say: “ This whole podcast is available to everyone, not just our members, so make sure you download the .pdf files quickly before we replace them” So I went and investigated……My oh my. The transfers were there for the last class, I could see what they said, I could get the whole transcript….. this took my level of learning to a new level….it was easier, and faster to figure out what was said and how it was written. I got addicted to those .pdf files even if they weren’t the complete text.. But as I reviewed the old lessons, I realized it would be much better if I had the old .pdf files and I joined and ordered the Intermediate level classes. It’s been such a help. The whole discussions , the missing .pdf files, the extra material to help me practice. WOW! I can only tell everyone it’s worth every penny. I was so impressed and pleased that I actually ordered the beginner’s series for my husband. I still attend classes at the Spanish Centre, but these enhanced podcasts have helped me tremendously in improving my vocabulary and my listening skills. Hopefully the next four months I spend in Mexico will make me even more confident in speaking the language.

Very useful

First, I have to disagree with 'scimom'. They have to say the phrases in English in order for you to know what the phrases are. I disagree about the point that they are trying to teach English and Spanish. Jade says the phrase once in English (so that you know what it is) then Carla repeats it three times in Spanish with pauses for you to repeat. It worked very well for me. Discussions of finer points are in English so that you can follow the discussion. My only criticism was with the pricing of the pdf files. As far as I can see, you have to buy the files in pre-bundled packages which don't always include the ones I want. I would rather see a credit system where you purchase credits and use the credits to get just the files you want (this is what 'LearnFrenchThroughPodcast' does). As a result I haven't purchased any of the pdf files. But I find the audio files (especially with the grammatical discussions in English) quite useful on their own - even without the pdf.

Frustrating

I found the lessons frustrating, as they seem to be geared both at people learning Spanish and at people learning English, all at the same time. You are instructed to repeat either the phrases said in Spanish, or the phrases said in English, depending on your need. Therefore, half the time what they said does not apply to you, which I found a nuisance. By trying to please both, they help no one. The later lessons do not leave enough time to repeat the sentence, which sometimes is too long to remember.
