God bless this author! I have tried so many things to learn Mexican-Spanish...and most were awful. They would teach European Spanish or Castillian or whatever, but NOT conversational Spanish in a way that I could almost immediately pick up and use.
The book and the cd's are easy, sensible and humorous with phrases and words that people need in real life.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I did not see anything in the product description about the audio CD's being in MP3 format. I would have liked to have known this before purchasing the book, just in case I didn't have a MP3 disk player. That was the only problem I had with the book.
It has been the best beginner language book I've found! I wish BARRON'S would find other authors like Mr. Harvey for other languages.

Format: Paperback
This is Anna Rivera, editor of the Learning Spanish Products Reviews site and author of Anna Rivera's 1000 Plus Most Powerful Spanish Words (Spanish Edition) and Anna Rivera's 800 Plus Most Powerful Spanish Phrases (Spanish Edition).

Spanish for Gringos with Compact Disks is published by Barron's Educational Series and comes with a 192 page book and two CDs. Its focus is on teaching beginners to speak conversational Spanish competently rather than on teaching perfect textbook grammar.

The CDs are a new feature from previous editions and add a lot to the learning experience since they reinforce the existing material and allow you to study in your car, but the entire book isn't translated which was a little bit of a disappointment.

Spanish for Gringos moves at a brisk pace and avoids trudging through obscure grammar concepts. Only the most immediate and useful concepts are taught which makes it a great starter program, but less than comprehensive. However, students who want to become fluent in Spanish will still need to use a good Spanish audio course with this product.
One of my personal students has used this products and he enjoyed it very much and said that it was a good value.

This book is one of the best how-to books on Spanish that I have ever used.
The audio CD's are top-notch. The author speaks slowly so that one can
repeat the lines spoken easily. I give it a 5-star rating! A great help
for beginners. Dave

Be careful! When I read the first customer review it said to note that the CD's were MP3 format.
Well I bought this book with NO CD's, by mistake. There are two images/web pages of this book. One with 3 CD's and one without. It's easy to end up on the wrong page, especially if you are looking for a used copy like I was.
I gave it 3 stars because if it had the CD's it would be great. Without them it's not so great. One really needs to hear the words spoken in MHO.

Our teacher named this as the book for our class. It was a great choice. It is easy to read & understand as well as gives you a quick ability to speak passable Spanish.

The concepts are great. Having fun learning Spanish is very important, not to get hung up on the correct pronunciation and grammar right away and not to have to "study" it but just learn it bit by bit as a child learns a new language.

The only thing my wife and I object to is the narrator's voice can be a bit annoying at times.

I also wish the CD and the book were more in sync with each other.

This is a great way to get the basics to get by in Spanish speaking countries. I had studied an earlier version several years ago and was pleased to find that this is still available, since I badly needed to relearn much of what I had forgotten. Much better now with the added benefit of 3 CDs. I will soon be purchasing Volume 2.
