Look ma, no textbooks! The Learn in Your Car series treats you like a child--in the best possible way--starting with one-word phrases ("please," "good-by"), counting exercises, and simple nouns ("bus," "train") designed to imitate a child's learning process. First you hear the words in English, then they are repeated slowly in clear, unaccented pronunciations. The method is extremely effective for those who don't know a thing, or for those who want to brush up by testing themselves when the English words are spoken. The tapes emphasize the building blocks of communicating in a foreign country rather than rote phrases that only apply on the tape and not in real-life exchanges. Level 1 painlessly covers basic verb forms, essential prepositions, near future and past tenses, as well as shopping, hotel reservations, and other travel-related situations. The series includes French, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese, and Spanish in three levels that can be purchased individually or in boxed sets. Each individual level contains two 90-minute cassettes (or CDs) and an accompanying booklet (not for use behind the wheel) with helpful explanations and scripts for the lessons.

All of the criticisms leveled by earlier reviewers are valid at some point in the program. I found a point where the volumn of the Spanish portion was too low. I also found a point in the second tape where the delivery is entirely too fast and some slightly inconsistent translations. However, these programs were limited to relatively small sections of the tape.
This program requires basic familiarity with Spanish pronunciation and grammar. I had to back up for about a month and study pronunciation with a computer program (Success In Spanish by Syracuse Language, which is excellent for absolute beginners) and a workbook (Spanish the Easy Way by Barrons Language). However, once I had the very basics, I loved this audio program because it allowed me to use the several hours per day I spend in my car in my work for a useful purpose. I would listen to the program once while reading along with the book, and then I was able to rehearse in my car without difficulty.
In summary, I believe this program serves it's purpose very effectively, and I would recommend it highly as A PART OF A LARGER PROGRAM OF STUDY.
It is all three levels in one set, which means you are quite advanced by the last section!
I highly recomment this system!
Besides the 6 cassettes, the books provided also spell out everything spoken on the cassettes. This way there is no confusion of what is being told and what you are trying to pronounce.
I have really increased my ability to understand spoken Spanish as well as increased my confidence to speak it myself. And I am not quite yet half way through.
Remember, after going thru these tapes again and again, you get to keep them, meaning if you forget, you can just listen to them again!
Makes learning a new language easy while at the same time not having to consume any more time. That is what I love best, the efficient use of my time.
