5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
This tape series is wonderful! I had a few years of high school spanish but was very rusty.I used these tapes to brush up.After listening to them over and over, I am able to speak pretty fluently with clients at work. The 2 speakers on the tape are enjoyable and professional in the way they interact.I feel like I know them personally, by now! It is nice to hear a native speaker as well as an american born person say the words and phrases.

5-0 out of 5 stars Learning Spanish Made Fun and Easy, and most of all, Affordable
This is one of my favorite Spanish courses. I have learned lots of Spanish from it. But what's most important about this course is that Mark Frobose uses a method that not only teaches you Spanish but also helps you retain it. I recommend this course to any that is looking to learn Spanish fast but is not looking to spend lots of money to learn it.

5-0 out of 5 stars FANTASTICO !
I have several others CD's that I do not use b/c they are boring.However, when I saw the reviews on this I decided to take a chance.It is wonderful.Head & shoulders above the others I have.Really an excellent supplement to my spanish language lessons (or it would be very fine by itself I think).

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
I have always been a fan of atlases and I received this atlas a birthday gift.Absolutely amazing.This atlas has the most comprehensive index I've seen in a world atlas.Also the coverage of the Antarctic continent is very thorough, something that almost all other world atlases lack.5 stars, excellent atlas.

3-0 out of 5 stars A downgrade from previous editions
The Times Atlas made its reputation by being the best atlas in the English Language.In previous editions, its detail and scale was as good as you could get(except for the briefly available and slightly less comprehensive Book of the World from Macmillan).This latest edition may still be better than anything else out there, but I haven't bought it even though I'd like to update.I've looked it over in stores, and the user who noted the reduced scales is right on the mark.I think all of the map scales have been reduced somewhat from earlier editions.He's probably also right about the clarity of the cartography.All in all, I'd say they had poor judgment in downgrading.This was the atlas for people who really knew maps, wanted the best and were willing to pay for it.Now it's a disappointment.

2-0 out of 5 stars going downhill
My old 5th edition (1977) of this atlas sustained some water damage, so I decided to upgrade to the new 11th. My 2 stars are in relationship to a previous 5 stars. Perhaps I would rate it higher if I didn't have an earlier edition to compare it with. It's not all bad: there is a new enlarged view of southern China and Taiwan, a larger map of Korea, a blown-up view of central Japan, a new enlarged view of central Mexico, better coverage of South America, etc. There are several major problem areas, however: a couple of glaring examples: in the older version of central Italy, the scale is 1:1,000,000 and includes a detailed map of Rome which is laid over the sea off the west of the peninsula. In the new version, the scale is only 1:1,250,000 which includes a vast, empty area of the Tyrrhenian Sea taking up about half of the whole map. The map of southern Italy is even worse: it is the same reduced 1:1,250,000 and is about 3/4 empty ocean, whereas the older version has the more detailed 1:1,000,000 scale which also shows more detailed views of Sardinia and Sicily, and much less empty ocean. Greece and its islands also show up smaller in the new version (the page dimensions are the same!). The new version has a 1:3,000,000 map of the whole of Turkey, including generous swaths of the Black Sea and the Mediterranean; the older version had two much more detailed (1:2,000,000) maps of eastern and western Turkey. The scale on the New York/New Jersey map is about the same in both editions; the older has a 1:250,000 scale map of the NYC urban area filling in the large area of ocean s.e. of the city, but in the new version that map is gone, all we have left is the big empty ocean. I'm sure that saved them some money, but not if nobody wants to buy it..... The city maps which were tucked into "low-rent" spaces (empty ocean etc.) in many, many places in the old versions are now all gone. Although the paper-quality is good, and the inking has a crisp, clean look, the topography is not as much fun as before: everything is in a lighter shade (they saved themselves some more money!) and so the distinctions between lowland and mountainous areas are not as clear as before. I was going to donate my older atlas to the department library, but now I'm going to keep it! I feel like the new version is a kind of insult to my intelligence: I don't need to see all of Turkey together to realize it is a single country, what I expect to see in a big, expensive atlas is DETAIL, not cost-cutting. Since this is supposed to be the best, I would be willing to pay even a little more, if I got my money's worth. This time I didn't. ... Read more

I've had the new atlas for 60 days and find myself looking something up every 2-3 days. It's really been fun looking up remote places like Palmyra Atoll, Kerguelen Island, the Fly River and other obscure places I read about.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lifelong reference book
This atlas is the standard for Geography 101 in campuses across the country.It sets the standard because it is affordable and extremely useful in geographic exercises.In truth, it is primarily a North American atlas, but that is because it is written for and marketed to North Americans.There are still more than enough maps of other world regions to assist you in Geography 101 or to assist you in monitoring the world news.Granted, an intense study of total world geography would require an additional atlas.That said, I purchased this atlas for a geography course in which it was instrumental.Since then, I have used it in more advanced geography courses and in my daily life.While I would prefer it to be printed in a bit larger format, this size is more affordable to students.I will keep this atlas to assist in lifelong learning.

5-0 out of 5 stars very happy
This is the textbook for my college geography course. I saved fifteen dollars over my college bookstore, their's was a softback amazon's is hardback, it will last longer, I'm happy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for new arrivals
I purchased this book for a new Mexican friend, who recently moved to the U.S. for two years and speaks practically no English, while I know a smattering of Spanish. We've found it to be invaluable in helping us communicate. When it's obvious that she isn't understanding me, I can turn to the appropriate page--the kitchen, for example--and point to the picture, and she can do the same. Then we work on her pronunciation of the English word. I will probably purchase another one for myself to help me strengthen my Spanish skills. I would also consider the other language titles to correspond with those my sons are studying in school. The format is user-friendly, the color illustrations are happy, and the categories of words are vast and extremely practical--especially helpful to someone struggling to get by in a new country. My friend showed the book to her ESL teacher and was very proud when the instructor recommended the book to the rest of the class!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture dictionary
What makes this dictionary so great is that it is not in alphabetical order and it is based on themes.For example, there is a classroom theme on a page and all of the words that have to do with what is in a classroom.Also, I like the fact that their are numbers next to the object and then all of the words in Spanish and English are at the bottom half of the page.This allows you to cover up all of the words and quiz yourself.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you want to learn Spanish this is the book
The tapes and book are fantastic.I listen to them in the car over and over again.I think I am actually 'getting' to know Spanish.A must to buy--I spend about 1-2 hours a week--so I don't spend 10 minutes a day--sometimes 30 minutes and then 2-3 days later 15-20--it works though.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great product
I have tried other spanish learning tapes.I have also attended Spanish classes with a regular Spanish instructor that teaches in high schoool (Spanish 1 - 4 ).I didn't learn Spanish until I obtained the book and tapes.Because I travel so much in my job I have a great opprotunity to be able to listen to the tapes. The book - tape combination is awesome and now I feel confident. What I have learned is sticking with me and I now feel like I can communicate in Spanish.The sticky labels that come with the book are also great.It's a package well put together.I am mid way through tape two ( two of six ) and am surprised at how much I can already say and understand. What an easy way to learn....

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
I've found the CD's enjoyable as I listen and learn on my commute to and from work each day.Each CD sytematically expands your vocabulary by providing you plenty of practice.I listen to each CD a few times until I'm pretty comfortable with it before proceeding to the next one.It's been great. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good!Needs Sentence Building Though!
Here I sit, surrounded by language courses.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good but Lacking in Conversational Practice
I have been using the course for two years now and I can say that I have learnt loads more Spanish than I did for several years in high school. One important tip - the best results are obtained from copying the disks to a portable player (IPod or something similar) and using them while you're walking, on an airplane flight or something similar. The abiliy to pause the recordings, where you need more time to respond, or to rewind or restart a section, where you need to revise individual parts of a lesson, is crucial to getting the most out of the course (or any similar audio course for that matter).
4-0 out of 5 stars I'm On My Way!
For many years I harbored the belief that I have a facility for foreign languages.Unfortunately, I never tested my belief, until now.I resolved to learn Spanish as part of my preparation for a dream vacation in Spain.The Spanish Complete Learn in Your Car set has gotten me off to a great start.Within a few lessons, I began using Spanish words and phrases without thinking of the English language equivalent.In other words, I began thinking in Spanish!I reached lesson five in no time.As a result I'm confident that I could find my way around airports, train stations, and bus terminals.I begin each lesson by listening to an English word or phrase followed by the Spanish translation.In the early stages, I repeat the term twice, exactly as it is pronounced by one of the native Spanish speakers.Before long, I'm able to supply the word or phrase in Spanish before it is spoken in Spanish.My commutes to and from work have never been so productive, and the miles seem to fly by. ...

I started learning Spanish eight months ago without any previous experience learning the language. I just used 3 tools that got 4 or 5 stars reviews at a popular learning Spanish product review site. This book is one of the tools. The other was the Learning Spanish Like Crazy self-study course. And the third was a reference book for verb conjugation (501 Spanish Verbs).

... this dictionary of English and Spanish words is a good one to have. It's small, can be carried with you, and is great for quick look ups when you are stuck on a word. If you don't know a bit of Spanish already, though, you really won't benefit from the book all that much.

Rand McNally is a consistantly good road atlas.The 2006 issue was very helpful in planning my recent trip.It doesn't replace the on-line maps or city atlases that show every street, turn, and such, but when you run into a temporary interstate closure, it answers the question of what is my best option now.

I did not think it was possible to exceed the old second edition, which I already had.If you are patient with this dictionary, you can decipher the meaning of just about anything you find written down and much of what is spoken.They give very good examples and hold back nothing.HarperCollins uses a no-star, one-star, two-star and three-star rating on words so you know if the word can be interpreted as something vulgar and just how vulgar it really is.The 8th edition uses highlighted text, which makes finding meanings, etc much easier.I think the binding quality is equal to that of my second edition and thankfully, ch is no longer a letter! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars very good
I am married to a costa rican and we are moving in 1 month to live in costa rica. So I needed to learn more than the basics. I needed to learn how to speak in sentences,I knew plenty of words but I coudnt put them together. So I talked like a baby.Thisis a great set very easy to follow. The books are great in the begining but when I start to get the cd pretty good I will put it on while I am cleaning and work like that. I don't think my spanish will be perfect after this, that will take alot more time. But if you stick with it, you wiil get a very good base.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to learn Spanish program.
I have reviewed a lot of Spanish programs and I believe that this is probably one of the easier to learn Spanish programs.
4-0 out of 5 stars Speak in a week hahahaah
I found it easy to follow and very easy to understand. The book went right along with the CD...but like anything else, you have to practice, practice, practice and my accent sucks!!!But it is a great product to use for a beginer and my husband has gotten many hours of laughter out of my practicing!!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
This is simply one of the best NYC historical reference work available. The book is divided into periods and will display numerous maps , photos and drawings of the buildings and landscape of the city at that time in history. Plenty of history is included to make certain you are keyed in to the era, and how the buildings fit in. Just a beautiful book. Great binding and very sturdy.
3-0 out of 5 stars Almost Great
This book includes many really nice maps of early New York.Much of the historical information included in the maps is uniquely presented here and lacking in many other publications.However, there are many editorial mistakes and misspellings that I have observed, which makes me wonder about the accuracy of the rest of the information.Additionally, the narrative text is simple, limited and sometimes disjointed and difficult to follow.Buy this book simply for its beautiful graphics and depictions of the city as it used to be. Some periods of the city's history could be greatly expanded, especially the city's role in the revolution and the siege of Fort Washington. Anyone with knowledge of the city will find it of limited value beyond the maps and illustrations.A little polishing of this book and some additional material for some historical periods in a future edition would make this book an outstanding work.For now, I would call it good but lacking in important areas. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleasant, nonthreatening way to teach basic English skills.
Each time I get a new Hispanic student with limited English proficiency, I purchase a copy of this book for him.My ESL students are all incarcerated men with various educationalbackgrounds.Even those students who have very limited skill in reading Spanish have found this book helpful.One student carried the removable fold-up phrase card in his pocket daily for a couple of months.I would not suggest using this text as the sole teaching material in a classroom setting, but it can serve as an invaluable teaching/learning aid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellente
This is an excellent book for teaching hispanic children and/or adults to learn alot of basic English language. It gives good examples and utilizes them in situations so the pupil may learn at their own pace.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent- Not exactly Mexican Spanish nor Texas English but
I have taught Spanish for a long time and this is excellent for the Adult students I am now teaching English. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
As a teacher for community Adult ESL classes with 100% Spanish speaking students I can say that my classes are THRILLED with this bi-lingual, pictoral resource.I know some schools of thought resist the use of native language but my students find comfort and help with the bi-lingual translations (as do I as a Spanish Language learner).This book gives you lots of bang for your buck and the teacher resource materials are very useful, too!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for ESL or for teens and up learning Spanish
I used this for several years in my Adult ESL classes - the words, and matching up the numbers are a little cumbersome for any age younger than junior high, I think. The only drawback is the lack of phonetic spelling - I think we expect it from a dictionary, but most picture dictionaries leave that part out for some reason.
5-0 out of 5 stars very informative
What is there to say about the book. It's got tons of pictures and with a number next to all the pictures, it tells you at the bottom how to say that object in english and in spanish. Very helpful. ... Read more
