Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the Pimsleur program and have started using it for Spanish as well as Indonesian; unlike some books/systems that begin with monotonous pronunciation of various letter groups, Pimsleur jumps right into conversation and by the end of the first lesson you can combine a few phrases. The program itself is broken into five thirty-minute lessons. You're supposed to do one a day, though I often repeat them. The only drawback is that the last five minutes of each lesson is pronunciation of words in the student guide, which obviously isn't included from Audible.
I got this to impress an Indo girl I met and to that end I've been very satisfied, in that it quickly and efficiently teaches some basic conversation and expressions. I highly recommend it as an introduction to the language, but having finished the second down available (lessons 6-10), I can say that if you're trying to learn this for a vacation or something you'll need a MUCH bigger vocabulary to be of any practical use.
