Michel Thomas (1914-2005) had an amazing life. Born in Poland, he spent his early years in Germany and then in France, where he studied psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris. When war broke out, he fought with the Resistance and suffered imprisonment in labour camps. At the end of the the war he joined the US liberation army and later settled in the US where he established his world-famous language school. For more than 50 years he taught languages to the rich and famous and was the world's most sought-after language teacher.
You learned your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn Spanish in the same way. Use the unique method perfected over fifty years by the celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This method works with your brain, helping you to build up your Spanish in manageable, enjoyable steps by thinking out the answers for yourself. You learn through listening and speaking without the pressure of writing or memorizing. You pick up the language naturally and unforgettably.

Speak Spanish - Instantly. No books. No writing. No memorizing. Michel Thomas teaches you through your own language, so there's no stress, and no anxiety. He builds it up, step by step, and you don't move on until you've absorbed and understood the previous point. And, as Michel Thomas said, "What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget." With parallels to the way you learned your own language, each language is learned in "real-time" conditions. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization.

Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player. Total Spanish with the Michel Thomas Method contains 12 hours of audio on CD.

  • Not conversational

    It seems kind of slow and it's not really how children learn a language. I thought I was getting conversational Spanish, but it is not. The Doctor says some key words, repeated by "students" on the CD, then you repeat. There is time for you to try to respond first. It starts with pronounciation, then some typical words with the pronounciation, then some long sentences. It's hard to explain, but It is not what I was looking for. There is too much explaining between the words. I am not saying it's horrible, jus not what I expected.I was excited because it went from beginner to intermediate. I will continue with it since I spent the money and hopefully it will be effective. I wish we could write follow-up feedback, then I would let you know the results. So far, OK.
