I listened to this while driving and like it a lot. I give it four stars because if feel if you were not familiar with any Spanish at all, it may be difficult to follow, but that is just a guess. I love the music and repetitive nature of the way they teach you and think this will be helpful in helping me get my Spanish back. I will be listening to the other volumes and repeating the first one again. I do think it helps you get in the mindset of actually speaking Spanish compared to just reading it and doing it on your own. I think this conversational format will help instill confidence when speaking with Spanish speakers.
