Très bon livre pour apprendre l'espagnol, sans avoir à mémoriser une centaine de règles grammaticales, comme c'est souvent le cas avec les livres d'apprentissage de langues. Learn the basics of the Spanish language with this easy-to-use guide featuring original illustrations by Andy Warhol-from one of America's most prominent language teachers. If it has got a downside it would be the layout, which is now dated (it was written in the early 1950's with Andy Warhol as the illustrator). I am no language savant (a fact, sadly, not false modesty), but I am a linguistic enthusiast and, having sought out, and used, beginner level materials for Russian, Japanese, Italian, Greek and Amharic and having taken French (A level) and German (O level) at school/college (a long, long time ago :-D), I can say that this book is better at getting the learner up and running with usable language than any other book or online resource that I have found to date, by a country mile. Spanish is a phonetic language, so once you understand how the different letters are pronounced, it’s effortless to read a word the correct way.

There is a method provided in this book that helps the learner to understand WHY it is spoken in this way, for instance, the work Tome, meaning to take but in Spanish it means to eat or drink something so instead of saying “I ate a sandwich” one would say “I took the sandwich” give or take (forgive me if that’s not 100% I’m still learning”I’m the kind of learner that needs to know the why behind the action/words and this book is amazing when it comes to that. Everything that is introduced is followed by more than ample opportunity to practice: there are sentences to read and word/phrase combination drills to perform. Listening to native speakers, sounding out words and practicing your pronunciation, studying vocabulary. The book also does an excellent job of helping you understand how Spanish works when it comes to verb conjugation. MARGARITA MADRIGAL WAS UNDOUBTEDLY ONE OF THE BEST LANGUAGE TEACHERS OF ALL TIME, AND HER BOOKS REMAIN POPULAR TO THIS DAY.I wish the Magic Key to French and German were still in print as I have made substanital progress with my Spanish using this book, the method obviously works. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. As with all language learning resources, the effort exerted by the learner is the actual key to learning a foreign language to whatever level the learner feels that they want to achieve, but Madrigals Magic Keys To Spanish is an excellent starting point and gives a great deal of potential for quickly usable language from which the learner can then spring and delve into other resources and learning opportunities. But, by using the right tools and learning a few tips and tricks, you’ll be much better positioned to succeed.

It then moves on to teach you grammar in a very novel way, none of the boring conjungations that had to be learnt by rote when doing languages at school. With original black and white illustration by Andy Warhol, Madrigal's Magic Key to Spanish will provide readers with a solid foundation upon with to build their language skills. Her teaching was so effective and received so much acclaim that she went on to instruct famous authors such as Ernest Hemingway and Sherwood Anderson. Using words that you already know puts you at a huge advantage as an English speaker learning Spanish.

J'aimerais tellement que plus de livres soit structuré de la même façon, cela permettrait aux autres d'apprendre plus rapidement et sans se décourager. Explanations are good, though the author does not point out differences in pronunciation between European and American Spanish like the author Eric Vogt does. Learn the basics of the Spanish language with this easy-to-use guide featuring original illustrations by Andy Warhol—from one of America's most prominent language teachers. I’m the kind of learner that needs to know the why behind the action/words and this book is amazing when it comes to that.
