Reviews For Rolling R's: Spanish Lesson Videos

Wow
5/5

I really appreciate this lesson! Thank you so much. ¡Que tenga buen día!
This guy is really good at teaching espanol because he breaks everything down so that a true beginner understands. I really like this guy and I hope he puts more videos out for us. Lol
I'm very impressed with the host's speaking skills. It is very important for anyone doing an audio/video podcast for language learning to have a clear and comforting voice. The video quality is excellent and I had to subscribe after one viewing. Great work and I hope to see more excellent lessons!
I have just watched a couple of episodes but am already hooked on Larry's simple and straight forward approach to learning Español. The conjugations are a good refresher and the expressions are useful in many ways, including creating new ones with similar structures. Muchas gracias Larry.
Larry, I went to leave feedback like you requested in Episode 69, to your website, but there appears to be some issues there. I've decided to leave it here instead. I learned Spanish (Castillano) in Argentine, many years ago. I haven't had a good chance to use it regularly. I've taken classes here and there, but over time, feel like I've lost most of my language. Your podcast has definitely helped me pick the language back up, dust it off, and start using it again. It has been invaluable in helping me maintain congugations and usage. Thank you so much. I'm so glad you decided to stick with it, and I hope you continue for long to come.
Professor Kiem does a great job. You will learn the essentials and be able to speak Spanish.
While he does pronounce his Rs correctly, there are some subtle pronunciation issues with his Ts and Zs. The letter Z should sound just like the letter S and the letter T shouldn't have so much air behind it. Seems like a good resource for your first semester of Spanish, but the little errors drive me crazy.

This is by far the best instructional video out there. Always wanted to learn Spanish, and Larry makes it an easy and fun to do it. If you want to learn Spanish, this is the only one ! Clear, concise, and to the point. Thanks Larry...GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK....keep up the great work...
hope you are still teaching and can come up with a few more audio podcasts. How to pronounce is the most important elemtent to learn since the rest can be obtained thru some sort of self study.
I took my first year of Spanish last year in school, now I'm waiting to take my second year of Spanish when school starts back. ^_^ This podcast is a great refresher to what I learn! (and even extremely helpful to beginners too!) I love the fact that they show the words on-screen (if you have a video iPod) and that really help me SO MUCH because I also want to know how to spell the word as well as say it! There are only very few cons with this podcast though: 1. they don't teach much vocabulary, but they teach a lot of grammar. 2. there are times where Larry Keim goes a little too fast in his lessons, but his pronunction is great! 3. too bad they are not going to continue this podcast *stiff* ;_; I like it so much. now don't let the podcast's problems bother you, EVERYTHING has its pros and cons. This is truly a wonderful Spanish-learning podcast! It is especially great for those who need a refresher on their Spanish or those who are learn Spanish grammar. I really hope they have more Spanish-learning video podcasts like this one! :D
OMG!!! I LOVE this podcast... very informative and really easy to learn. Pus it's got larry- u rok! the way it teaches is very easy.. The only thing i remember though is 'tu pagas la cuenta' and i use it alot!!!! u rok!!!
Larry Keim provides an excellent podcast for those trying to learn Spanish. Each lesson is short, focusing on one verb or basic topic. Words used in the podcast are often displayed clearly to aid in learning the vocabulary. A must for people beginning to study Spanish.
Wow! Thank you so much Larry! I am a student and I have a spanish teacher that sometimes can't get his lesson across, but with your help I understand spanish like it's my native language.lol. Keep the lessons comin'!
Larry Keim is a great teacher! Unlike some educational Podcasts, Larry gets right to the lessons and doesn't waste time with useless information. Very informative!

Great way to start to brush up on your spanish and learn. Larry Speaks clearly and the words are at the bottom so you can see them also! Def a great Download
My family and I are getting ready to move to Belize and I have been listening to every Spanish podcast I can find. This is by far the best. Easy to understand. Thanks Larry! Maybe my next review will be in Spanish!
This guy really makes it easy and fun. I took four years of Spanish in middle school / high school. The lessons transport me back to the classroom and are helping me to prepare for a trip to Spain. Gracias Sr. Keim! Keep up the good work!
This Podcast is perfect! I've been searching for something to help me review my spanish (I've taken three and a half years in high school) I've tried many spanish podcasts, but I just couldn't find one I like... this one is so fun and clear... I don't know what else to say to express my happiness at finding this podcast!
Excellent Video Podcast. Seeing the words really helps. I can't thank you enough.
Hey mr. keim! keep up the good work! this guy knows what hes talking about so listen to what the man has to say! Later Keim!
I can hardly beleive that my wife and I are slowly but surely learning to speak Spanish. And we are really having a great time learning with Larry's short, and to the point lessons. Thank you Larry and please keep up the great work.
This is exactly what I need... visual learning. Seeing the lips and text helps so much in addition to the audio. This is one video podcast that utilizes the medium! Thanks so much for your time in doing this!
As another middle school Spanish teacher, I use this podcast to supplement the teaching I do in class. Larry has a great delivery that makes learning a new language unthreatening and within one's reach. My studnets and I look forward to each new lesson!
Loved the audio only version
I like to listen in my car, so I don't always need the video. Also, the video version won't copy to a non-video iPod. An audio version of the older lessons and the new ones would be wonderful.
This is an excellent podcast, and I like the idea of having an audio version. I don't have an iPod with a video screen, and I listen to podcasts while I walk or drive, so audio is my preference. Either way, this is muy bueno!
Simple...Organized...Step ladder type lessons....Clear view of whiteboard...reliable weekly downloads...Clear audio and video...short quick lessons...A good tool to start with... GOODS:The best i have seen on iTunes. If you are looking for a good podcast to start with download this one and stop looking. His lessons are simple and easy to understand but not so simple you get bored or feel like your taking a class with your preschooler. The lessons are organized. He's not going over "spanish phrases for travelers in spain" and then talking about food and then how to say numbers. You can see the board if you want to pause and take notes or listen to lessons in between commericals if your a busy person. It is a good tool to start with and to get you ready for learning more spanish (esp if you are not taking a class or program, because a lot free and some paid resources dont address the basics and if you are self learning it can be hard to get started). BADS: The intro and credits are a little annoying after a couple of lessons and make up a lot of the lesson but no bigge, i guess im too exicited to wait. sometimes it can go fast, but im sure if you have a ipod you know how to pause and rewind. The only thing i wish Mr Keim would include, if he has already, is a quick lesson on ABC's, numbers, etc. Good luck!!!!

I love your podcast! Can't wait to learn more Spanish! Can you do one podcast just as a review of all the others? That would really help. Keep up the good work and thank you for providing this free. I've always wanted to learn but can't afford spanish lessons. God is so Good!
Pretty lame really. I live in Spain and hope that people would expect more from an instructional podcast than this. No offence to Larry Keim, but the pronunciation is not very good. If you want to learn Spanish, find another way because these videos will only help marginally. Don't mean to bash anybody here, I just want people to be informed. The Spanish language is beautiful and I would hope that anybody interested in learning it would put a little more effort into it than just watching a poorly made video. If it's this or no Spanish then go for it, but if you really want to learn something of value go somewhere else.
I've been married for 5 years to the love of my life a beautiful woman from Costa Rica. While she speaks english her family does not. I've struggled for years to learn only to become frustrated and down on myself. Everything finally clicked when I found Larry Keim and his PODCAST. I download it and listen while working out in the gym and driving on my route as a UPS driver. I'm finally getting it! Thanks Larry.
Mr. Keim is my Spanish teacher; he is an excellent teacher there and on the podcasts.
I love that it is short and to the point. I am not bogged down with TOO much info but just enough to let it sink in and makes learning easier. I retain so much more with this podcast than I have with other learning tutorials. I definately reccomend everyone download this one. I can't wait until the next lesson!!!
Very good production quality. These video podcasts make learning spanish fun and easy. Seeing the words on the screen really helps. You can tell he is a teacher by profession. Nice job!
