Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction (16 hours) as MP3 download, plus PDF user's guide and reading booklet

Spanish is the official language of Spain and 21 Latin American countries, and is an official language of the U.N. Pimsleur's Spanish teaches an educated Latin American Spanish, with speakers from Colombia and Argentina in levels I-III, and from Mexico in level IV.

Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes with Pimsleur it’s that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. Spanish Phase 2 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completing Phase 1.

  • In the first 10 lessons of Phase 2, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex and informal speech is introduced. Conversations become fuller, and learners are able to discuss business and social activities, manage shopping situations, and express their interests. As you progress, vocabulary is expanded and fluency increases.
  • The next 10 lessons of Phase 2 allow you to further combine and build upon known elements, and produce longer and more complex sentences. You learn to bargain with shopkeepers, deal with business situations, get and give medical information, and discuss the weather.
  • In the final 10 lessons of Phase 2, you’ve doubled your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You’ll gain experience asking for assistance, finding a location that is some distance away, and using relative structures – faster, slower, etc. Sports and leisure activities are explored, as well as shopping, changing money, and future travel plans. By the end of Phase 2, you’re speaking at a midintermediate level with nearnative pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Spanish, and to provide you with some insight into Spanish culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at things you’ll see when visiting a Spanishspeaking country. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    Comments about Spanish Phase 2, Units 1-30:

    Been planning a trip to Spain. This course has really helped me to speak a little Spanish. I know I'm not fluent, and understanding fast speakers will be a problem, but I feel comfortable that I can do what I need to do. Very good course.

      Comments about Spanish Phase 2, Units 1-30:

      I listen to a lesson without trying to repeat the instructor.
      I listen a second time and repeat what the instructor says.
      I listen a third time and stop the lesson each time I am NOT sure what is being said.
      I listen a fourth time and write down what is said in Spanish.
      I go to a dictionary and look up the Spanish vocabulary to make sure it is spelled and accented properly.
      I listen a 6th time and read what is written as the instructor says it.
      I listen a 7th time with my eyes closed and imagine the conversation as I listen and understand it.

      In past language studies I had convinced myself that I had to first SEE how something was written before I could understand it, but Pimsleur makes me really listen to what is being said and I think that is better.

      I also like that the instructors speak at a normal conversational rate.

      I have the mp3 program that I uploaded onto my Mini iPod.

      And lastly, I AM 76 YEARS OLD!

      Comments about Spanish Phase 2, Units 1-30:

      Can't think of anything less than perfect. Anyone that tries any other product will never make the same progress. I have already purchased the most common programs for learning Spanish. I no longer utilize those programs and I spent a hefty amount of money for them. I should have purchased Pimsleur first. I learned more Spanish in 1 month utilizing Pimsleus than I have in an entire year with other products. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

        Comments about Spanish Phase 2, Units 1-30:

        I like hearing the words with the proper Mexican accent. We have many Spanish speaking people here. They say my pronounciation is good.

        Seeing the word along with hearing it would help sometimes.

            Excellent pacing. The time allowed to repeat the teacher is perfect. Excellent way to learn and practice pronounciation. The vocab just comes with repetition. The only program I've found that allows me toe arm during my daily commute
