I have to say that I read through the book intermittently over the course of many months, sometimes not touching it for months due to becoming involved with other things. Also, I use a flashcard app to schedule daily Spanish, and as I read this book, added study material to the app gleaned from what I found most relevant in the book. But having finally made my way to the end, I have noticed improvement in Spanich comprehension (both with grammar and vocabulary), such as when I pick up the local spanish weekly newspaper for instance. I believe this is because Sam Fuentes really put thought into what he selected for his examples. The fact that some of the English translations are at times awkward (just here and there) was actually a good sign to me. This meant that the material was truly originally written in Spanish. It also exemplifies why I do not seek material originally written in English, because then the same problem is likely to exist, but in reverse, and as a native English speaker, I would have no way of knowing. As I type this, offhand I can't remember for sure, but I believe Sam Fuentes created this for his own students, and it shows. As I said, very thoughtfully put together, and that is why I am taking the time review this, which I don't typically bother with. I just want to express my appreciation for what he did. I will be buying the next in the series as soon as I type the last period in this review.
As I continued with this book I realized my original review was too harsh...the vocabulary in this book has become quite helpful and practical..for example in one dialogue I learned how to name someone after someone and how to say someone lives up to his name.
I am looking forward to all the other volumes of 'Practice your Spanish' by Sam Fuentes.
