Movie Reviews

Get the 'Inside Track' on learning English
Lillian Bloom | California | 11/11/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"'El Ingles de Hoy' makes learning English enjoyable for the Spanish speaker. Using authentic scenes and realistic dialog, the learner is transported into various scenes: making reservations on the phone, ordering at a restaurant, using postal services, shopping and attending a business party.

The dialogs are shown in context, then they are broken into practice chunks to repeat in both word-by-word and full utterance formats. It is easy to review sections.

Effective use of a native Spanish speaker on the `Inside Track' feature, guides the learner through cultural differences and explains the quirks of spoken English.

The accompanying ' cuadernillo' (notebook) lists all the dialog and translation in addition to a glossary, contraction dictionary and the `Inside Track' notes. This is a learner friendly, easy to navigate, high quality DVD for Spanish speakers wanting to learn or improve their English. L. Bloom Certified ESL Instructor

"Es un video creado especialmente para aquellos que necesitan mejorar su conversación. Para hablar con seguridad y entender con precisión en cualquier situación, especialmente de la vida social y de negocios. Viene con una guía impresa que incluye todas las frases en inglés y español para poder seguir los diálogos sin perder palabra. Lo mejor de este DVD no es lo que incluye sino lo que excluye, no tiene nada que no sea aplicable. Para personas con poco tiempo libre que necesitan ir al grano y aprender frases y nociones útiles para mejorar en su trabajo y entorno social. En fin, es un gran curso para cualquiera que desee aprender inglés sin profesor, en la comodidad de su casa y a su propio paso.

"We recently purchased this video for our nanny. It has been a real breakthrough for her, for our family as well. Communication between all of us has greatly improved. I would highly recommend this to any Spanish speaker looking to improve their English speaking skills."
Useful tool for classroom and home use

"I'm an ESL instructor and have used this video in the classroom. El Ingles de Hoy is not for beginning students but for those at the literacy level with some previous ESL instruction. Overall, I found the video to be a practical tool that helps motivated learners gain conversational proficiency. The video presents several common situations and introduces vocabulary and phrases appropriate for that situation. In this way, it helps students apply classroom knowledge to real-life scenarios. I would also recommend this video for self-instruction as the video comes with a dual-language instructional booklet."
