Ive tried the Michel Thomas spanish cds, but they are chiefly aimed at structure. However one in the series (by rose lee hayden) uses the same method for vocabulary. THe pronunciation attracts some criticism, but the content is really useful. I am going back over it for a third time. It covers about 1000 words and is easy to do. Can be pricy so look on ebay.

You may be interested in the nearly 15,000 Spanish vocabulary words located at: http://quizlet.com/in2languages. Many include graphics/pictures to help in memorization as well as gender were necessary. Also there is one set of about 2,000 cognates and one set of 4,000 high use Spanish words to keep you busy. I have nearly completed the DL series by skill as well . Enjoy!!

Good luck!!. Have a Lingot.

Hello Russ_Eaton!! Not sure why the down vote but it appears we have someone who does not like the resource you have listed and lacks the intestinal fortitude to share with you personally why they dislike the resource.

I am not personally aware of Michel Thomas and this program but I do appreciate you sharing the resource and then I can make up my own mind as to whether I will or will not use the resource and with that being said please allow me the pleasure to provide your post with an up vote and an additional Lingot.

This forum is for the purpose of language learning and the dissemination of thoughts, ideas, comments and resources that further that end.

Again thank you for your willingness to advance the language learning process.

I am In2Spanish.

You are kind. Michel thomas is an excellent course to build your language structure and speaking capability. It is audio based - i find it great on my ipod. I bought them all and have to say that it was the best investment i made in cash and time. A great complement to duo. I also use Babbel vocab which i somehow managed to get for free- i really like your structured quizlets- i had looked previously but as all mixed and crowdsourced i didnt find it useful. If you like flashcards might i also direct you to Memrise- which has an algorithm geared to note your familiarity as well imagery to help with memorisation.
