The material in the absolute beginner package is too advanced for a beginner,
and the content seems random and not very useful.
Even in the first lesson, the people talk quite fast, don't pronounce carefully, and use unfamiliar grammar.
It doesn't seem to take the step-by-step approach that academic language classes use.
Sadly, to get absolute beginner materials that you could actually use, you have to buy access to lessons on a web site that they are pushing.
Now they are posting something about free lifetime lessons. What about us fools who purchased early and were offered the purchase of web site access??
The people who posted that this was a required subscription were wrong, it was clear that it was optional,
but it just as clear to me that you need something more basic if you actually are--as they title the product--an "Absolute Beginner".
Senor Roberto says thumbs down. Way, way down
Want to learn Ghetto Spanish? Well this is for you! I want my money back!
Do NOT buy this to learn Spanish! Only buy IF you are already intermediate level!
If you do not already have a good basis in Spanish, do NOT buy this app thinking you will learn the language from the ground up. I am a teacher with 25 years in the classroom and can tell you that there is no structure to this app that will help you develop a BEGINNERS vocabulary, learn BASIC grammatical structure, and then listen and speak in this language. The title of this App is completely misleading. I have a very rudimentary understanding of Spanish (am fluent in French), and can tell you that this App is NOT going to help an "Absolute Beginner" learn Spanish. This is a collection of what amounts to podcasts with transcripts and translations of conversations about random subjects. The first lesson distinguishes how to say you don't want your hair in a buzz cut, but just want a trim. IF you already have an intermediate knowledge of Spanish and are looking to speak the language more naturally and learn modern idioms and phrasing, then yes, you "might" find this app useful. This product was not created with any pedagogy that links the way that we learn a second language being considered. In my opinion, this was only created to push people to subscribe to their spanish101.com website. You will get a seven day free trial with your $10 that you pay for this app. But really folks, listen to the others below me (I wish I had, but there were only two reviews, and I already have a language background, so I thought I would be able to make use of this, but nope!) I wasted my $10 - don't waste yours. (Wish there was a way to test run apps before you decide to buy them or not - would keep someone from having to waste their money in order to warn others off a bad app.) If they want to push their website, give this product away for free and let people decide then if they want to pay you for your product on your website. This app itself is a waste of $10 to anyone who has no knowledge of Spanish already. Intermediate level and above, it might be useful, but still, $10 is a bit steep for it - you might consider making it a $4.99 app - maybe then I wouldn't feel so ripped off. Good luck!
