Review: Pimsleur Approach Spanish I Cds or How I am learning to speak #Spanish!
Way back when in school when choosing a language to study, I chose French. It was a romantic notion. After all , my favorite things were French: croissants, couture, Chanel etc.. So it seemed the logical choice. Now, if you asked me, I would choose Spanish. Since, most of my life has been spent in NY State, and I travel to Mexico and other Spanish Speaking countries/cities, it is logical and useful for me to know basic conversational Spanish. And Pimsleur makes it easy. I was so super excited to receive the beautiful black box full of cds and start learning. Most of the time, I have to fight Ana for the cd player (she is a bit hooked on Frozen, as you can understand). But , when she relents we are learning this amazingly easy way to speak Spanish.
