My DM loves Spain and has been trying hard to learn Spanish by doing a weekly course near her (for nearly a year). Unfortunately the teacher doesn't seem to be much good (speaks mainly English!!) and my mum is getting on a bit wink so still struggling with her numbers and with fairly basic phrases. Can any of you recommend a good DVD that covers the basics in a straightforward way? I've shown her how some films she likes have a Spanish language track so she's been doing some of that. I would be grateful for any other recommendations.

I really like the michel Thomas CDs for learning languages, maybe look at those?

Some libraries have the Michel Thomas CDs. Worth a look before buying.

The BBC have an online video course called Mi Vida Loca. That might be worth a look as it is free.

Another great site is called News in Slow Spanish which is precisely that!

I tried it because it's top on youtube. The method works great for me.
