But the other two indices have been a problem. In the paper book you can use the English Spanish verb index to look up English verbs, find the equivalent in Spanish and see where the conjugation is. Also you can use the 2,200 verb index to look up Spanish verbs not included in the 501 for a short definition and a similar 501 dictionary entry to help you conjugate it.
In the Kindle edition it's easy to use the Table of Contents to get to the first page of these indices. But to actually use them you would have to page through, page by page, until you found the word you want. There's no way to search for anything except the 501 verbs.
I got around this problem by creating a "Note" at the beginning of each letter in the two indices. When I want to look up an English verb, I "View Notes & Marks" and can page through quickly to the right area.
What the book really needs is two more searchable "dictionaries". I hope that if it's ever developed the upgrade will be available to us, the pioneer users.
Note: I've made my Notes public so you may be able to use them to access these indices with having to enter them yourself.
The first resource is a 728-page reference book. The reference book lists the most common verbs in alphabetical order. One verb per page. With every verb full-conjugated in all of the different verb tenses. The reference book also has a section that lists many common sayings or expressions that you will hear Spanish-speakers say.
The second resource is a CD-Rom. The CD-Rom has lots of exercises – both text and audio – to help you master conjugating Spanish verbs.
The third resource is a 28 track audio CD disk that teaches every verb tense, including the Spanish subjunctive. There is an English speaker and a Spanish speaker on the disk explaining when to use the different verb conjugations. And they also explain in detail how to actually conjugate the verbs. This also happens to be my favorite of the three resources that are included with 501 Spanish Verbs.
I highly recommend that you buy this book. Not just because it is impossible to achieve fluency in Spanish without also learning how to conjugate Spanish verbs. But also because this book is such a tremendous bargain for the price.
Earlier I mentioned that 501 Spanish Verbs is one of my top three learning-Spanish products. Now I will share my other two.
1. Easy Spanish Phrase Book NEW EDITION: Over 700 Phrases for Everyday Use (Dover Language Guides Spanish). This is an economically priced, handy resource that easily fits into my back pocket. You can conveniently take it anywhere with you when vacationing in a Spanish speaking country in order to have more than 700 phrases in your Spanish-vocabulary arsenal. And unlike so many learning-Spanish books, there is also a section called "Computers and Technology" where you'll find Spanish vocabulary related to modern technology.
2. Learning Spanish Like Crazy Level 1 CDR - w/ Super Bonus Package - Learn Spanish & Speak Spanish - New & Improved for PC/Mac - Free Updates for 1 Yr This is my favorite audio Spanish program because the program focuses on everyday, Latin American Spanish. This is a new and improved version with new content and new native Spanish speakers, and I find it to be much better than the previous version. The program is geared toward the foreign-language learner who wants to eventually achieve fluency in Spanish instead of someone who just wants to learn a few travel phrases. Compared to the other programs that I have used, this one does the best job at teaching you how to develop an authentic sounding Latin American Spanish accent. The program also comes with a very impressive bonus package.
If you have any questions about 501 Spanish verbs, please post your questions below and I will do my best to answer your questions.
I bought the book at the suggestion of a Spanish language instructor. What he said made sense -- you can get by with just a few words in Spanish. You can point for nouns if you really need to. But verbs? You really can't do anything without verbs. They're the backbone of a language.
