Review

I'm rarely motivated enough by a product or service to leave a review but this app was just amazing. I downloaded the app earlier today and recently finished the half hour class (for the 2nd time) and can without a doubt say that it was the best Spanish language class I've ever taken. It's engaging, lighthearted and cleverly witty style captured my attention and didn't let go. This first lesson was an excellent introduction and refresher and I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the following lessons.

Starting with 2 years of high school Spanish classes my goal, not yet met, has always been to be at least comfortably conversational. I then followed that with classes in college, private tutors over the years, the Rosetta Stone courses and several other methods. I can easily say that this product is the best of the bunch and I have no doubt that it will produce the greatest results. My iphone now has a new purpose and is cherished even more. --iTunes Store: Easily the best Spanish language lesson I've ever taken. Simply incredible! by Martin76

This is absolutely one of the most fun language lessons I have ever seen. It is like a very entertaining TV show, with intelligent conversations and good acting. Complete refreshement after all those boring podcasts that we are used to.

I am looking forward to more of it! Great work:) --iTunes Store: Great way of learning Spanish by Preproduction

I have been a student of languages for many years now, and this is far and away the best language tool of any type that I've seen. It's highly entertaining as well as educational... clearly intended for those who want to have fun while learning a language. You'll be laughing in Spanish in no time...

Waiting anxiously for the next language to be released! --iTunes Store: The best language tool out there by AA in BA

Product Description

You Will NEVER Learn Spanish With Boring Software, Old-Fashioned Audiobooks Or Automated Translators!

Bueno, entonces... is the interesting, stimulating and entertaining new way to learn Spanish! It is proven that if you are engaged or entertained, your brain wants to hold on to information. With Bueno, entonces... you will retain more Spanish than you ever thought possible!

Since January 2009 more than 20,000 people are learning Spanish on their iPhone or iPod Touch with Bueno, entonces...

David is a cheeky Londoner; Jimena is his gorgeous Argentine teacher. Join their class and get an intensive Spanish immersion, pick up a little about Argentina & Latin America, and see how some cultural tension provides the perfect backdrop for absorbing a foreign language.

Witty, engaging, entertaining, and at times outrageous - Bueno, entonces... is a fast-paced, comprehensive series is comprised of 30 classes. Whether you are starting from scratch or an intermediate level, you ll learn new vocabulary, grammar & correct pronunciation. In every class, as the relationship between David & Jimena becomes more complex, so does the level of Spanish. By the end of 30 classes, David is speaking conversationally, and so can you!

It mostly has just helped me understand Argentine Spanish (and all other Spanish) better.

They speak at relatively normal pace, well, probably even a bit slow, but not slow enough for a beginner.

Saying that, you won't get bored and will likely even remember some irregular verbs the following day.

I'm a beginning student of Spanish, middle-age enough to appreciate learning and study time, and I've seen numerous presentations of learning materials over the years. This video set definitely keeps your interest and that's half the battle when learning a new language. It's fun, it's edgy, not for moral conservatives unless you have a good sense of humor! Definitely not for kids under 16, I'd say. David is a guy in his 20s who's gone to Argentina to learn Spanish; his good fortune finds him instructed by a very lovely native chica. Let the flirting and fun begin! There's a professor comic character who pops up now and then with grammar lessons. David and his sexy professor are shown in body sketch form with "real" human pictures of their faces that change to reveal expressions matching the ongoing dialogue between them. Both of these voice-only actors are excellent! Lots of interest and excitement in their voices and great enunciation. I love it! My only problem is that it goes too fast for me as a beginner. The content is beginner level, starting with basic greetings and introductions, but everything sequences too quickly because I'm trying to hear and listen as well as read the dialogue that's displayed on the screen. And get this... I'm supposed to comprehend the color coding of the displayed the words too! It's just not possible, at least not right now in my learning. They speak at relatively normal pace, well, probably even a bit slow, but not slow enough for a beginner. But I'm going to keep trying because I think there's a lot of benefit to be had here. It's very well done. I wish there was printed material to go with it -- alas, none of that.Read more ›

Originally, I gave this product a 5 star. It is still a 5 star. BUT ..... How in the heck did they get 9 (NINE) glowing 5 star reviews on November 18, 2009??? And the next 8 reviews until Dec 8, were from reviewers with only ONE review. What's the chance of that? Except that 17 of the 20 ratings until December 8, 2009 were phoney? How did they get that perrrfect 5 star rating that quickly? Except by self glorification. One of the rater actually admitted that she is the MOTHER of one of the developer of Bueno Entonces. So, I knocked my rating down to 2 stars, just to draw attention to a company's attempt to play with numbers.... Shame on you !!!! You would have retained the 5 star rating, but you rushed it. By the way, if you remove your phoney ratings, I'll give you back your 5 stars.

I like their color coding to outline sentence structure, masculinity of nouns, position of indirect and direct objects. The themes are adult in nature, an the program would be inappropriate for minors. Which is sad, as they have a good program. The program is entertaining. Eventhough the entire program will take about 18 hours, you will likely go through it several times - thus the lessons are not simply done in 18 hours.

There is significant use of vos and os, with its unusual form of conjugation which is not taught in many classes. For me it is a plus, but for some, it might be confusing and frustrating. As it is different than the vosotros that we are familiar with. The vos form is conjugated different in different countries.

You can still download the program for less than half price of the DVD's. Search for it on the internet, and it will take about 30 minutes to 1 hour to download the entire 30 lessons.

Pros:

1. Good listening practice - the on screen transcript is a great idea and works very well. If you have a problem with the speed you can slow things down by watch the video on VLC media player (free) and pressing "[" and "]" to slow down and speed up.
2. Is somewhat fun and has a nice pace for the most part. Especially week 3.
4. A lot of the jokes David makes when he learns something new in Spanish work as mnemonics.
5. Colour system and on screen subtitles in both languages is a great idea.
6. Don't worry about being a beginner, I would say the lower your level the more this course will help you, it doesn't matter if you don't understand every word.

Cons:

1. Does not get you to the level of Spanish promised
2. Does not include enough extra activities
3. Is too passive and does not provide you with opportunities to practice. These are videos for you to watch.
4. Far too much English spoken and long periods of off topic ramblings which teach you nothing and aren't particularly amusing.
5. Starts to drag terribly from week 4 especially, even the two actors start to seem a bit bored, and David just doesn't feel like speaking Spanish a lot of the time. There's a lot more English and listening, it gets a lot more frustrating.

Pros in detail:

1. The best thing about this course is the speed, native speakers speak much faster than this but most courses for beginners speak much much slower. Slow Spanish is not a real language and nobody speaks it.
