Pros - the books includes SOME phonetic spelling, and is nicely laid out as far as which chapters come first, then next, etc. Another huge pro, is there is a TON of info, and I didn't see any errors in the several times I have perused the book, or read passages for students asking for help.
Cons - the page layout has a LOT of words on each page. The basic idea behind learning a language is that a language is made up of words. This book presents many phrases, which for a beginner, is too much to memorize or make sense out of. For an intermediate learner, they know to break phrases down, but the grammar that goes with the phrase is not immediately available (though it is covered in the book, how does a learner know where to look?)
So... this book is PERFECT for a reviewing student. Maybe you studied in high school and need to brush up for a placement exam. Perhaps you remember some from college but need a crash course before your trip to Mexico, I would highly recommend this book - you know enough to work your way through this book effectively. For all other learners, there are better books out there Spanish Now! Level 1 with CDs (Spanish Now) which comes with CD's, or other readers, etc, that are less overwhelming.
If it had a CD, I think the effect might be a lot better, but as is, it's just TOO much for a beginner.Read more ›
The Everything series is well done and presents the information in a very accessible format.
