Product Description

Portable Spanish contains five learning tools including two DVDs, one CD, video and audio files for iPod or other MP4/MP3 players, SpeakMore Spanish software, and a Spanish phrasebook.

MORE THAN 600 WORDS IN 30 DIFFERENT CATEGORIES
With Portable Spanish you will speak, read, write, and understand over 600 commonly used Spanish words and phrases in 30 different categories such as At the Hotel, At the Restaurant, Greetings, and Asking Directions.

BUILD A VOCABULARY FIRST
Language teachers and linguists have long known that you need a strong vocabulary before you tackle complicated grammar rules or conversation. And knowing just a few Spanish survival words will go a long way in your travels.

LANGUAGE TOOL #1: TWO PORTABLE SPANISH DVDs
Native Spanish speakers (male and female) will teach you over 600 Spanish words and phrases. You ll first see and hear the word in English and then you ll be given two chances to hear and learn the word in Spanish.

Skip a word you know or repeat it as many times as you'd like. Learn at your own pace.

LANGUAGE TOOL #2 - SPEAKMORE SOFTWARE

SpeakMore Spanish software updates the time-tested method of flash card learning to the internet age.

With SpeakMore Spanish, you are just four simple steps away from fully comprehending over 600 commonly used words and phrases.

1. Preview It: See and hear the Spanish words and phrases as you flip your way through the cards. Many cards have pictures so you can associate the Spanish word with a picture as well as the English word.

2. Recognize It: See the word in Spanish. Speak or type the word in English. In no time at all, you'll know how to read and write all the words.

3. Produce It: Now you start to really learn Spanish. See the English word and say or type the word in Spanish until the definition comes to you naturally. Repeat each word as many times as you'd like.

4. Test Yourself: Once you're confident that you know all the words in a category, take a test. You can take a written test, a pronunciation test, or combine them.

SpeakMore Spanish even learns along with you. If you struggle with a word, SpeakMore Spanish knows to show you that word more often. If you've mastered a simple one, then SpeakMore Spanish will only show you that word occassionally. You learn at the right pace for you.

SpeakMore Spanish works with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X.

LANGUAGE TOOL #3 - PORTABLE VIDEO

Got an iPod? iPhone? If you ve got a music player that also plays portable video files (H.264 for you techies) then learn Spanish on the go. We ve taken all the video files from our DVDs and converted them so you can also watch them on a portable video player.

Learn Spanish one category at a time. Or randomize the words so you never know what will appear next. Create your own custom playlists with a media manager like iTunes.

The portable video files also work as a great reference tool when traveling.

LANGUAGE TOOL #4 - PORTABLE AUDIO

We ve taken all our audio files and included them as MP3 files in Portable Spanish. MP3 files are portable audio files that play on any computer or portable players such as the iPod or Zune. We ve made sure to create each file separately so you can create your own custom playlists and learn Spanish as you d like. If If you wish, you can also burn these MP3 files to a standard audio CD that plays in your car or stereo.

LANGUAGE TOOL #5 - PHRASEBOOK

Portable Spanish includes a handy colorful phrasebook with all the Spanish words and phrases included along with their English equivalents.

I purchased this to learn some basic Spanish to get me started. This set does what it advertises. It is a basic learning program. Everything is organized into categories, and you can go through those categories on DVD or MP3 versions. I think there is a booklet included in the DVD case, but I haven't looked through it. I really wanted a program I could listen to in the car on the way to work. This fits the bill. I have it on my iPod and can listen by category. The bad part of that is, the instructions suggested creating a playlist b/c otherwise the categories are considered song titles, so that gets confusing. I did a playlist, however, now the words are not organized by category, they are all random. But that could be my error. The DVD is NOT very exciting or interesting. It is just two different people saying the words and phrases in Spanish and it gives you time to repeat them. Nothing spectacular, but I find I learn better by seeing the word (which is shown in the DVD) and hearing it, too. Overall, this is a good basic program.

If you just need to learn basic Spanish words, this is for you. If you need extra help learning how to speak the Spanish language, this is not for you. All this is are two people saying words and having you say the words. Very basic and very boring.
