    Phase 2 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completing Phase 1. By the end of Phase 2, you’re speaking at a mid-intermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

    What did you love best about Spanish Phase 2, Units 1-30?

    I took Spanish for a few semesters in college, but never got to the point where I felt comfortable speaking it. After about a month of listening for 30 minutes a day, I can converse about a few different topics and use different verb tenses. The way the program introduces new information is just perfect. Listening to Pimsleur turns a long commute or housework into an opportunity to learn a new language.


    Have you listened to any of Pimsleur’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Once I tried Pimsleur French at Phase 1. It moved a little too slowly and I got bored with it. I would recommend that if you have any background in a language, start with the last few units of Phase 1 or even at Phase 2.

    What did you like best about Yes Please? What did you like least?

    What I liked best were the performances and guest stars. What I liked least was the lack of humor. I love Amy Poehler. She's hilarious, but her writing is not as funny as her comedic acting. I probably chuckled out loud two or three times. Some parts of the book were very touching though. I still love Amy Poehler, but I wouldn't recommend this book if you're looking for laughs.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The last chapter was probably the best. It's a live performance.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The performances were okay.


    Did Yes Please inspire you to do anything?

    Nope.
