Berlitz Self-Teacher : Spanish
| Book - An excellent way to get started
in Spanish. Each lesson takes you through a conversation, illustrating
a grammatical point (and teaching you vocabulary along the way).
The grammar is illustrated through the conversation first, then
certain grammatical rules are pointed out. This way, one can
learn Spanish the way one usually learns their own native language;
specifically, by hearing the sentence structure over and over
again and "absorbing" the rules.
