Thank you for another excellent podcast. Increase vocabulary is very difficult for me and some of these flash card ideas will be very useful.

It was as a good idea to put the “house keeping” at end of the podcast.

Thanks again

Can anyone comment on the Bilingual America/Spanish Power series?

It looks interesting.

Hi Rich,

I listened to all of your podcasts over the Thanksgiving Holidays. Thank you for the direction and encouragement to not give up. I need both!

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Power-Glide learning system by Dr. Robert W. Blair. I currently own the children's version and am using it to teach my elementary school aged children. However, we have not progressed far enough that I have learned anything new and of course the children are learning very fast. Power-Glide also has a course for adults. I am curious to know if anyone out there has used or know someone who has used this foreign language program.

Hi Rich--

I have been listening to all the podcasts and you are covering some great things. One thing that I have wondered about, as an adult learner, why is it tougher for us? Also, is it foolish to try to tackle two different foreign languages at the same time? I will be trying Spanish and French.

Hi, just discovered your podcast. I've gone through #1 and #2 so far. This will be a great holiday listen. Thanks for doing it.

We are going to start up a Spanish study group at our church in January, so this kind of information is exactly what we are looking for.

Thanks for the great Podcast.
There are several Palm PDA resources that incorporate the flashcard model. The PocketLingo Spanish Dictionary for PalmOS, for example, has a feature called "My Word" that is, essentially, a deck of electronic flashcards, with a few extra features. Having the dictionary and the flashcards both in one program, in my case loaded on my Treo PDA mobile phone, means I can review words anytime, anywhere and don't have to organize or remember my flashcards.
I do also have a decks of both home made flashcards and professional flashcards. The more tools the better!

Another good use for flash cards around the house/office:

Tape cards with the Spanish words onto common household or office items- lámpara, ventana, computadora, escritorio, etc. That way, whenever you pass the card, you can make a mental note of the item and its Spanish word.

When you have one group of words down, make a practice of identifying the item in your head so that you remember the word.

I have also made a weird practice of saying things in Spanish in my head, when I'm in situations where only English is spoken. I'll translate my own thoughts or other people's words.

If anyone would like to practice writing, I'd certainly enjoy an email exchange!

The data entered for flashcards can also be displayed in a hangman game, matching game, word search puzzle, and a crossword puzzle. The web site also supports exporting the data to PDAs, cellphones, and iPods.

Podcast #15
Subject: flashcards

I would not recommend the above mentioned web site.

The words on the flash card do not include the Spanish accent marks!

I drive international passengers at the airport. The flights are from Mexico. While I am "trying to learn Spanish", I am more intently also learning Ukrainian because so many of my co-workers are Ukrainian. The links on the flashcard site are invaluable for either language THANK YOU!

Great information! Great blog! But what I honestly think is that the easiest method to learn Spanish is still the learn Spanish CD from Rocket Spanish
