I could go on and on but I have completed level 1 (all 3 discs) and went to Costa Rica recently. I WAS able to communicate there!!! And when they spoke slowly enough I could almost always understand what they were saying to me. I certainly didn't always respond with the exact right phrasing but I spoke well enough that they knew exactly what I was saying. It was so exciting! If you are dedicated to learning this program will probably work for you. Im even able to roll my R's now where as before I had no idea how to do that!! Oh and thr little booklets that accompany the discs are fantastic to carry around with you at all times for reference.
In summary, I've tried different programs including Rosetta Stone and even books and workbooks and Learn in Your Car has worked best for me.
Good luck and enjoy the new word that is about to open to you because you will be bilingual!!
Basically the course consists of a speaker in English saying a word or phrase and then another speaker reciting it in Spanish. Course chapters are generally between three and six minutes long. The user is supposed to say the words in Spanish after both the English and Spanish versions. Thus the teaching is primarily by rote memory. This works to a certain extent, but there is no discussion or explanation of the logic and grammar of the language on the tapes. There is material containing the dialogue and a few notes on the CD's available for the buyer to print out. This is very important as an accompanying tool to the CD's. Without it, I would have gotten lost quickly. The Spanish speaker on the CD's speaks fast and it is difficult to pick out the separate words at times. This is realistic, but it would be better if the speaker slowed down part of the time. An annoying related problem is that the user sometimes is not given enough time to recite the dialogue in Spanish. This is very frustrating when attempting to learn a long or tongue-twisting phrase.
I look at Learn Spanish in Your Car as one of several valuable tools because it should be used in conjunction with a book and a dictionary. It has taught me a lot of Spanish and I expect to learn much more. I recommend it to others, but the above needs to be kept in mind. Learning a new language is difficult and there is no easy route or quick fix!
