I think the books have only recently been translated into English. They were published by Assimil on 2017/09/14. So there won't be a lot of people who had gone through it yet, sadly :cry: and even so, I don't think the book is being sold outside of Europe yet. And the Perfection series has not been translated to English yet

I am currently using the 2004 version (The English version was released in 2014) and I am loving it. If you have any questions about that, I'd be glad to answer :D

I assume it's the 2014 version but with USB instead of MP3 disc?

Thanks for the info, and the offer! Do you like it better than the 1987 version? What are the biggest differences?

The B2 to C1 book. The correct English title is "Using Spanish". I have the 1996 English Version of it.

Your next question

Mmm. Tricky question. Both are equally good imo, I have only used the 1987 up untill Lesson 23. But I kinda lost motivation for Spanish in general so I dropped it, only starting up again after several months. I pirated the 87 version, but decided to buy the 2014 version (English) and I have been loving it. The only REAL difference is the vocab and grammar being more from that time. They use LE more, talk more in the usted, etc. The 2014 talks about more modern tech, uses a more informal speech, etc. Both will teach you Spanish using the same structures (The 87 does have more lessons).

Enjoy and please join me if you can :D
