I have heard of the Teach Yourself series, and I wanted to see what it was all about. I chose a language that I was familiar with to focus my opinion on the series. I really do enjoy the series. I have been using it close to a month. It comes in a very pretty box I think protects the book and CD. I noticed how nice the book looks and how colorful it is. I saw the older versions and it is an upgrade. Color catches my attention. I felt a little excited to use it because of the way it looked. I had literally forgotten what language it was until the first lesson. I am still using it, and I feel safe and easy. Little by little new information is presented. It does tap into what one learned before and builds on that, which is the best way I learn. Even the way grammar is given. I love grammar when it comes to language and tend to overdue it. That makes me forget the majority of what I would learn. Here the book gives just enough to see how the sentences are made within the script and learn what is what. (what a noun, verb, etc. is) I enjoy the cultural tips. I usually would have to google them and that only happens when I want to, which is rare. I like the speed of the voices on the audio; slow enough to grab every word but not to the point where I feel like they're treating me like a idiot. I like the Castilian accent that is used because that is my favorite one. I don't like the amount of English the audio uses. It is only reading the directions on the page back to me and telling me to do the instructions. That is annoying. I find the exercises a bit tedious but I also see they help with remembering.
In conclusion, I really enjoy the Teach Yourself series. I do recommend this to anyone who is either dying to learn Spanish or, like me, satifying a curiosity from time to time. It is worth the money. That is coming from someone who is REALLY cheap!
