An essential addition to your Collins languages collection.
As a languages student, I was so excited to find these books on NetGalley and absolutely had to read them! I have studied French for 17 years and Spanish for 10 years, and whilst I am at a fairly advanced level in both, I’m rubbish at studying and because of being a part-time student am unable to devote as much time as I would like to my languages, so these books sound perfect for me!
I started reading these books almost as soon as I got copies, and I found them so engaging and easy to get into the flow of. Each chapter is of a reasonable length and doesn’t try to cram in too much. I like how the books emphasise the importance of not having to learn everything you read off by heart and instead use repetition to help you remember words and phrases.
Unlocking Spanish and Unlocking French are yet more fantastic additions to the Collins language collection, and are ones that I will be thoroughly recommending to people wanting to improve on their language learning. It’s such a unique take on learning a language that really explains why you’re doing a certain exercise and focuses more on how we naturally learn a language rather than expecting you to remember everything you learn.
