WRITE A REVIEW

Great resource

5

This is an old book still in print. It approaches learning Spanish in reverse to most other resources I have tried. It focuses on the past tense from the beginning, the tense I have previously had most difficulty with. This book is easy to understand, easy to follow. Great to use in conjunction with other language resources.
