This is a very well written guide to Latin American Spanish. Latin American Spanish is impressive and complex, and therefore may be daunting as a language to learn. However, Juan Kattan-Ibarra provides a skilful step-by-step process as to how to improve one's knowledge of the book.

The way the book is set out is helpful and easy to navigate. Importantly, there is no over-use of complex language so that the beginner can start their work without the concern of having to decode the instructions first.

Even though I only had book to review, not the audio, I’m glad I had the chance to read this very helpful and well laid out language tutoring book. I’ve been using Duolingo, but it has many draw backs. This books fills in the gaps with explanations of Spanish words and grammar in Latin American countries that has improved my knowledge and enjoyment of learning Latin American Spanish. Thank you to Nicholas Brealey US and NetGalley for the ARC. The views expressed are all mine, freely given.

While this is below my Spanish level, it looks like a great workbook with a variety of activities that help with listening comprehension and pronunciation, as well as just writing and reading. I would be interested in having a more advanced version.

I think this is a great book for beginners. As someone who is brushing up on their Spanish, I appreciated the way this book was organized and how it really covers everything down to the basic fundamentals. I think I would definitely prefer a paper copy so I could utilize the progress tracker, but this is a book I will refer to in days to come as I continually try to learn Spanish.

This is a great study guide for anyone who is learning or wants to learn how to speak Latin American Spanish.

There is an audio which accompanies this course, it is quite helpful.

Learn numbers, the alphabet, how to pronounce words, and much, much more useful stuff.

Quotable Quotes: "Write messages or postcards in Spanish." This will help you to retain and remember the Spanish words.

Highly recommend.

I am thankful for the complimentary copy, I was not obligated to post a review.
