though I have been aware of the imperfect tense before starting this session, I really had to think for this one. I understand it, but my brain and my mouth are fighting with each other on this one. Good lesson. I know I will be re-doing this one. The longer sentences make it challenging too. Great job!

This is just a comment. Sonia, you and your team are sensational! I have studied Spanish somewhat before starting to use Fluenz and I could never understand the pronouns lo, la, and le. Your program with all the practice and, of course your tutorials, have finally made it all make sense. You and your program are next best thing to having a personal tutor right in my house. Thank you Sonia, for such a wonderful, well thought out program!

This is just a comment on the review lesson. Great review! Tough one though. I found that I knew all of the material, but looking at the English sentences and trying to say them in Spanish was really straining the brain. I will have to repeat this session one or two more times to really feel like I know it well. Did anyone else find that this review was difficult? I am glad that it was difficult. Any trouble I had, just points out some of my weaknesses and would need more work.

I am currently on Level 4, Session 4 of Fluenz Latin American Spanish. Love it! When I finish a session, I can understand the spoken Spanish, write the Spanish, and I can translate an English sentence into Spanish but with sometimes with some hesitation and thought. My question is am I ready for the next session or should I wait until I can translate the English sentences without hesitation? I am already making myself do each session twice. I am anxious for new material, but I don't want to advance too quickly and not know the material as well as I should. Any advice?

I am at about the same spot that you are (lesson 11 of level 4). I also do each lesson twice. And I am probably not doing as well as you. I can translate from Spanish to English pretty well. But find it much harder to go from English to Spanish quickly. I will be interested in the responses to your question.

Thank you for your reply. At least I have comfort in knowing that someone else understands my situation. One thing I do is when I am on a match the phrase workout, I look at the English on the right side and try to say it in Spanish and then look at the Spanish on the left side to see how well I did. I almost always get it correct, but like I said, sometimes I have to think about it first and it is not a reflex. I don't know if I should repeat the lessons a third time or continue on and review at the same time with the flash cards. I hope others tell their story.

Let me start by saying that I love Fluenz. I am half way through Level 3 Latin American Spanish. My listening comprehension outside of the program is not too good. Does anyone have any tips on how to improve? I listen to radio and Spanish soap operas, and I even Skype with someone in Spain on a regular basis, but I still struggle in this area. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. I think you are right. Increasing my vocab will definitely help and I am trying to listen to every source I can. Thanks for taking your time to give me a response.

I know it may be a little odd hearing this, but you may already have, but if you do have the extra money to do it, I recommend buying rosetta stone espanol after completing fluenz. YES it will be a bit boring already knowing the grammor and structures and little odd and ends, but it is loaded with vocab. I bought it first before i heard about fluenz, and i can def say that fluenz is better at getting you to actually talk and understand but rosetta has more vocab practice in that sense, but I'm not bashing either one of the programs. Each has its own specific area of focus for the purpose of each program. I'd still prefer to learn the fluenz way if it were possible after completing all levels. I just made it to level 3 and on the very first review session at the beginning. LOVE it! Hope this helps!
