Reader Reviews

I am enamoured of the First Thousand Words series
It amazes me how many of the thousand words I did not know in Spanish and German, which I studied for a number of years in high school and college. And I am delighted to have them now as I study French, Polish and Russian on my own. I DO appreciate your books and the Quicklinks!

Great for adults too!
I bought this book as I am 19 and attempting to learn Spanish. Its colourful, easy to read format makes it perfect for picking up vocab and the easy to use pronunciation guide at the back of the book is fab. Brilliant, can't wait to order my German and French versions.

Usborne's 'First Thousand Words in Spanish'... Excellente!
The day my niece said her first word, I thought: "Great! Now's the time to teach her Spanish!!" I love the language, and wanted to share my knowledge with my family. Obviously, it is not easy to get a 3 year old to do grammar exercises, so I looked for some inspiration in my local book shop. 'First Thousand Words in Spanish' has wonderful, funny illustrations, and clear text. My niece loved using it, and her Spanish improved in leaps and bounds! I would recommend this book to any parent, teacher, or aunt (like me!) who wants to inspire their little ones to engage with a language - or even to learn themselves!!

Great pictures - so many things to point out. Great in any language.
