    Before i encountered this book by sheer chance, i thought learning a foreign language was a waste of time and impossible. but the instant i picked it up and looked through it i became hooked! After working my way through it and then the pimsleur program, the audio forum fsi sequence, david burkes street spanish sequence and spending lots of time in the barrios i am now fluent in spanish and starting on chinese! This book is inspiring in the way it makes learning fun and quite adictive through the word and picture method. If you are wanting to learn spanish, this is the best place to start. i believe it made my efforts in my later courses more effective because no matter how advanced i got into the 50 hours of pimsleur and the 55 hours of the foreign service institute sequence i was still running into material that was familiar to me from see it and say it in spanish. And i have begun a whole new career now and it all started with this book! Ms. Madrigal is certainly an extraordinarily gifted teacher.

    This book taught me more than my high school spanish class! In school I just couldn't grasp all the grammer rules and so forth. I figured I just wasn't capable of learning another language. After relocating to Texas and now living in a metroplitan community with many Spanish-speakers I decided to try once again.I bought numerous books and tapes that either confused or bored me so I didn't continue my Spanish studies....until I picked up Margarita Madrigal's little book. At first I thought it might be juvenile and a bit too easy....well it was easy,....and it worked! I was remembering without really trying! This little book got me hooked. I picked up her other book- "Madrigal's Magic Key to Spanish". My Latino coworkers were and still are impressed with how fast I am learning Spanish. I also bought an audio Cd to help with my pronunciationn - "Pimsleur." Another great course - although a bit expensive. I still refer to See it and Say it in Spanish. It's a great book.

  • Don¿t let the fact that See it and Say it in Spanish was published in 1961 deter you. The word-picture method that she employs is an incredibly effective pedagogical technique that builds associations that cement retention and recall. Every word and concept in See it and Say it in Spanish is accompanied by one of these associative visuals. You have to try it to really understand how well it works.

    This little paperback--See It and Say It in Spanish--has benefited me in my endeavor to gain a basic knowledge of the Spanish language. I have had the German language version of this guide for many years, so I knew that I would not be disappointed with getting See It and Say It in Spanish. Even though I completed a Spanish language audiobook course before using this book--hearing the language spoken is important--I still have utilized See It and Say It in Spanish as a reinforcement tool. This paperback is not intimidating and presents a nice way of learning the language by the word-and-picture method. Other features of this guide besides the conversation lessons are a pronunciation guide, a traveler's handy word guide, a grammar section, a Spanish-English vocabulary section, and an index. See It and Say It in Spanish is a solid reference, and I recommend it.

    If the author of See it and Say it in Spanish seems familiar to you, it may be that you¿re familiar with Margaret Madrigal¿s other classic, Madrigal¿s Magic Key to Spanish, which, for my money, is in the top two Spanish learning tools along with the more recent Learning Spanish Like Crazy.

    Madrigal also makes heavy use of Latin roots in order to connect Spanish words to their English counterparts. This enables students to synthesize concepts across different languages and see the interconnectedness between them. Once you start seeing the logic behind the structure, it makes learning any language easier. Sadly, this technique is not commonly used in today¿s classrooms. This is a shame.

    See it and Say it in Spanish is best suited for beginners. Kids especially like the visual approach of this product. If you¿re looking to get a young one started, look here first.

    I have been learning Spanish using the Pimsleur Spanish courses, levels I, II, and III. The Pimsleur courses are excellent, but they do not teach grammar, per se. The Pimsleur method alone might work well for some students, but I find that sometimes I need to know WHY you say one thing in one way and say something else in another way. The See It and Say It in Spanish book has helped me a little because it provides the conjugations of some common verbs and explains a few things such as the subjunctive. Here is the MAJOR shortcoming of this book: The book ignores the familiar form of the language, which just happens to be the way that most people speak Spanish most of the time. In other words, the book will teach you how to say 'Are you going?' to someone you don't know, but generally does not teach you how to say such things to friends and family. At a price of only about six bucks, the book is useful and worth buying.
