I'm a Spanish speaker and I bought this book for my boyfriend. I took my time looking trough many books because I wanted to get the best book that would show him not only grammar but that had exercises, vocabulary, reading paragraphs and I found the EASY SPANISH STEP BY STEP which is the first book that covers basic and some intermediate on the last lessons of the book and now that he is about to finish that book I bought him the ADVANCE SPANISH STEP BY STEP. I have seen a really good improvement since the very first time he took the book. Even though he has to think a little, he is able now to say some well structure sentences in Spanish thanks to the first book and I'm sure that once he finish the advance one he will be able to follow a conversation.
As a Spanish speaker I would recommend this book because it covers all the essentials and helps you not only to learn how to ask for the bathroom or where a restaurant is but to be able to communicate too...
This book is clearly written and easy to understand. The examples and grammar exercises offer excellent illustration and re-enforcement of the text. In short this is a fine textbook for anyone trying to learn Spanish.
Unfortunately, little thought was given to converting this text book into an E-book. It seems as if the editors at Amazon satisfied themselves by simply scanning the original text into an E-book. Unlike recreational readers, the readers of textbooks have special needs. Listed below are three issues that will prove troublesome to most students. If Amazon wants to capture a larger share of the textbook market, it must address these items.
First, the lack of page numbers makes it difficult for the reader to cite quotations and refer back to previous topics while studying.
Second, almost all of the examples are printed in a small font that I found impossible to enlarge. This is a serious problem for those readers who wear glasses or study...
I recently started studying Spanish with a private tutor, and to supplement what I was learning in the class, I first bought "Easy Spanish Step-By-Step," and soon afterward "Advanced Spanish Step-By-Step." Both books are excellent for learning grammar. They are very well organized and have lots of exercises aimed at facilitating learning Spanish grammar.
However, I don't think the books are too good for learning vocabulary. So this is not "all-in-one" solution for those who start learning Spanish. Also, my Spanish teacher (she is from Spain) commented several times that some of the words and phrases used in the books are either old-fashioned or wrong.
To summarize, it's a perfect book for learning Spanish grammar, but not too good for learning vocabulary. Still, I give it 5 stars, as I was looking for a book that would make learning Spanish grammar easy, and this book fits the bill.
