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!
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

The program has a major weakness which is there is no opportunity for the user to pronounce and therefore an important component of learning is absent. Also occasionally the humorous quipping becomes annoying.
You can always understand whatever she says because it is written out for you on the "Magic Whiteboard." Does she speak to quickly for us gringos to understand? Of course she does, sometimes. That's how we learn...being stretched beyond our limits a bit. Don't worry... listen, watch, and follow along as best you can. As you grow in Spanish it will become more and more clear to you.
This is definitely a listening program rather than a speaking program. But most people develop first the ability to read a language, then the ability to speak it, and finally the ability to understand it when spoken. So there are a good many of us out there that need to work on our listening skills.
I love the Pimsleur method, and I love Learning Spanish Like Crazy. Both of those require you to speak it. But sometimes you can't do that...for instance if you are in bed with your spouse or on a trip with someone or on a bus or at work or any number of other places where you have to keep your mouth shut.
And another thing- because of the nature of this program being what it is and not requiring you to speak it back, this program covers far more ground in 30 minutes than Pimsleur or LSLC. The program covers a LOT of vocabulary, far more than those.
And... this program actually goes over grammar rules, something those others do precious little of.
"Doing the whole thirty classes" one time isn't going to get it done for anyone. This is a series that you're going to have to listen to most every day for 6 months or a year. (Just like Pimsleur and LSLC). It takes time to learn a language, and the fact that this is very entertaining will make the investment of your time fun.
I was initially worried about it being Argentine Spanish, as I always thought it was so strange sounding with a couple of strange rules. But this program has helped me overcome my (irrational) fear of Argentine Spanish. And after all, Argentina is one of the largest and most important Spanish speaking countries in the world, and one that produces a lot of entertainment. And the fact is, since you are only listening and not speaking it with this program, I have found that this doesn't really affect my accent very much. It mostly has just helped me understand Argentine Spanish (and all other Spanish) better. (Note: Any time in this series that something uniquely Argentine comes up, you get a little flag pop up so you know.)
So definitely, I'm very enthused about what they have done here, and am looking forward to Bueno Entonces Nivel Dos!
