I hate to rate these so low, but I was very disappointed by the lack of
categories. The cards are all identical in appearance, although they of course
cover different grammar concepts. There is no way to study any concept in
particular (pronouns, say, or specific tenses)-- you just have to mow through
the massive stack of 1,000 cards and study things at random. This is not helpful
for me as a beginning student with certain things I need to review (and other
concepts I'm not ready for, and would like to be able to locate and set aside).
I was also not clear if the cards are in the box in a particular order (say,
from easy to difficult). I hope not, since the cards aren't numbered, and are
easily mixed up. In order to make good use of a student's time, I think this
series really needs to contain clearly marked categories and/or progressive
levels of difficulty, like a textbook would. As it stands, this box of cards is
analogous to a textbook with the pages strewn around at random. Hope Berlitz
rethinks this approach.
I have been studying Spanish on and off for a few years now and I LOVE IT! I
used to be pretty fluent. But, unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to use it
much lately... and I forgot a lot of things, mainly verb conjugations. I bought
Berlitz Spanish Grammar flashcards because I wanted to try something other than
going through a grammar book. I'm really happy with the purchase. The cards are
durable, fun to use, cover a big chunk of grammar, and are excellent for
reviewing what I learned a long time ago. Give them a try, you won't be
These cards are exactly what I was looking for. But, of course, I knew I could
rely on Berlitz. Aside from having a good format, the weight of the cards is
just right for easy handling.
