It would be nice if there was a follow-up audio course that would focus on using the most common past and present verb tenses. I would like to have a concentrated audio course where the main focus is verb tenses introduced the same way vocabulary is introduced in the current course. Just like how _qué haremos_ (what *will* we do) was introduced in lesson 1-7 (I think). There are quite a few verbs conjugated in the grammar books, but I don’t really learn it (ingrain it into my head) unless I listen to it over and over in the context of a conversation. I need the most help with different ways to use each verb.

I completely agree with you in that listening is the most important aspect of Rocket Spanish. I am not through the beginners and interactive as yet but I am already concerned that I will need help with the advanced manual. For those of us that do not have access to a Spanish speaking person, the audios are a must. Has anyone contacted Mauricio and Amy about possibility making the advanced manual available on CD for listening?

Hola jcaiken, Thank you so much for your comment. The answer to your question is yes, we are going to make the Advanced Manual available in an audio version (as well as expand the audio course), but that won't be for some time yet. We are currently focusing on improving the package as a whole by intergrating the various components of Rocket Spanish (such as the flashcards and MegaVocab game) with the Interactive Audio Course. But don't worry! Just as soon as we finish, we'll start work expanding Rocket Spanish by adding an audio version of the Advanced Manual and much, much more. Don't forget that once you are a member of Rocket Spanish, you get lifetime access to all upgrades and updates (available from your members download page). If you can think of anything else that would improve Rocket Spanish, please let us know and we'll be happy to consider your idea so that we can continue producing the kind of product that Spanish learners want. All the best, Mauricio

I am glad to hear that. Being able to play the MegaVocab games and get familiar with the new vocabulary words before starting each new audio lessons will be a huge benefit!! I can't wait until it is finished. When listening to the audio lessons I have the hardest time learning the vocabulary. I seem to learn the vocabulary much easier with the MegaVocab game. If the two were combined together I think my learning time will increase exponentially.
