Summary

We, Gordon and Cynthia of LightSpeed Spanish, are very excited to bring you the audiobook that really does demystify the Present and Past Spanish Subjunctive. Most students of the Spanish language shy away from this subject, and it's no wonder! So many resources on the market make it look complex and difficult to understand. Yet, here at LightSpeed Spanish, we have developed the perfect system to walk you through the entire range of the Spanish Subjunctive, step by step. 

This comprehensive audiobook uses simple, easy-to-understand explanations that won't leave you mind boggled, while it guides you through the creation of over 600 Subjunctive sentences. By the time you've finished this learning journey, we anticipate that you will be more confident, more at ease, and far more able to use the Spanish Subjunctive in every facet of your communication. It really is a must-get resource for any serious student of the Spanish language!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fantastic Resource

At last, I found someone who can explain the subjunctive, with great skill and clarity and precision. And, oddly enough, the book is fun too. Thank you to fabulous authors!

Superlatively marvellous. Brilliant teaching.

This is one of the best books out there, for learning Spanish.
I know, because I've been learning Spanish for more than five years and I like books so I have many of them.

No, what am I talking about? It is THE best book out there for learning Spanish (that I have found so far)

This version works extremely well as an audiobook ...as long as you take the trouble to do the exercises which are in the accompanying pdf file. Gordon reminds us of this dozens of times throughout his book.

He is an enthusiastic teacher. He is committed, dedicated, compelling and is really everything one could possibly want in a language teacher.

On top of that he has a lovely Geordie accent and a very kindly and generous tone to his voice. It is irresistible - and extremely reassuring while being led through such a terrifying minefield.

I had only covered the first couple of chapters when I went back to Audible to buy the other two of his audiobooks.

I have just finished my first listen of this one and I'm excited to be starting the next, which will be either "Ser and Estar Made Simple", or, "Perfecting the Past in Spanish".

After that I'll come back to this one for another complete listen. I can't wait.

Already, the whole issue of the subjunctive in Spanish has become much less of a big mushy blob for me and is now something much more defined, something I know I can handle ...given time and application.

So the book does exactly what it says on the cover, which is to "demystify" this otherwise impenetrable aspect of Spanish.

Absolutely recommended. Congratulations and thanks to Gordon for such exemplary teaching. This is truly a superb piece of work.

The best purchase I've made to improve my Spanish

I cannot begin to rate this audio and PDF highly enough. Gordon and Cynthia have made the subjunctive so incredibly easy to understand and get right after years of classes trying to remember when to use it/how to conjugate it etc etc. I will recommend this audio and PDF to anyone I know who is learning Spanish. I hope they continue to produce more materials of a similar style. I have not been this happy with a language learning resource since first discovering Michel Thomas as a beginner.

I’ve finally got the subjunctive

I was reluctant to buy this book initially because it’s main author was not a native Spanish speaker, but in actual fact this is probably one of the biggest things in its favour. He has clearly experienced the same pain that myself and a lot of people have gone through and persevered until he has gained complete mastery of the subject. Unlike most language books this one hand holds you through the process in such a natural and effortless way, enabling one to enjoy and understand a subject which up to now has seemed complicated and out of reach. I’m delighted to have found it and I’m grateful to finally gain full understanding of a subject which has eluded me for such a long time.
