    Comments about Spanish Phases 1-3:

    As one who was ALMOST fluent in Spanish many years ago (through book-learning and difficult conversations) I feel this is an excellent teaching product. It really helps to have a familiarity with the verb structures (-ar, -er, -ir) and irregular verbs in order to appreciate why things are presented in the order and manner in the course. The colloquialisms and slang are very good. I am surprised at how much I recall, but I started from scratch with Level One and found it very useful as the lessons get more sophisticated. I'm waiting to see if Castillian Spanish is touched upon. My experience in Spain is that the conversational aspect of Castillian is very important. Thanks for making a great product.

    Comments about Spanish Phases 1-3:

    This is my second time with this same series. The 1st time, several years ago, I completed the 3 available levels. When in spanish speaking countries I was able to converse and have fairly decent conversations with people from the area. I let my skills erode over time and wanted to get back. I decided to take all 3 levels of spanish again, but I couldn't play the cassettes that I had. Pimsleur changed them for an up to date format for a nominal fee and I'm off and running again. It is coming back to me. I'm surprised by what I retained, and the review is catching me up with what I have forgotten. There is no better program around, and the support is phenomenal.
