Easy lessons, fun songs, and great animations on CD-rom, November 26, 2002
The CD-rom has been the most helpful part for me. I like to go through the CD-rom and practice saying each sentence from the songs. I've also found that the images from the animations have helped the words and concepts to keep going around my brain long after I've turned off the computer.
The book has quite a bit of grammar - nearly all of the basics, as well as a travel phrases section that I've just about worn out. I also bought the 501 verbs book, which is a good compliment to this program. The amazing part for me is that I've struggled with verbs for a long time (I've done all kinds of learn on tape programs) - and having the songs as a reference point has made it easier to remember. I don't get much past using the present and the past tense, but Musical Spanish has helped me to feel more comfortable actually speaking. I think the author is really on to something with this musical grammar business - heck if it works for an old fart like me it must do wonders for the young kids. Arriba with the Español con Musica!
Unique and highly recommended for students of all ages., March 22, 2002
Entertaining and educational, July 24, 2001
- Learning Spanish? Here's an innovative book (with Compact Disk) that teaches grammar using 10 traditional Spanish songs. This is great for beginners. The music has a good beat and it's a great way of learning. Music has a way of integrating different cognitive areas of the brain. Sing along to "La Bamba" and "Cielito Lindo" and learn important grammar lessons. You'll be tapping your feet and learning Spanish from head to toe.
