One of the best ways to learn to speak Spanish is to practice speaking with a native speaker, but it helps if you know how to say something. Speak Some Spanish by Judith Noble provides the learner with a pronunciation guide and useful phrases, verbs conjugated and explained, and 'fill in the blank' exercises. Speak Some Spanish begins with simple words, but progresses quickly to more advanced words and complex verb tenses. I read it aloud, stumbling over some words, but I improved my pronunciation and understanding as I continued. I found that with the help of Judith Noble’s Speak Some Spanish, I expanded my vocabulary, learned more about conjugated verb tenses, and developed more confidence while speaking.

I live in Chile and have struggled for years trying to learn how to speak Spanish. Last week I had the confidence to take my first private lesson and the next day I was surprised and grateful to have the opportunity to review Judith Noble’s Speak Some Spanish. I devoured the book and absorbed a great deal. Yesterday was my second lesson and my instructor was much impressed that my Spanish had dramatically improved since last week. She observed that I used more words without having to pause and search for what I wanted to say. Last week I said more in English and less in Spanish, but the reverse was true this week. I appreciate the chance to review this book and I will continue to study it. Judith Noble’s self- instructive book teaches those of us learning the language what we need to know in order to Speak Some Spanish.
