I cannot believe how simply this course is broken down. This course is so clear and concise that I am speaking and understanding already before completing the course. The course does not let you forget words that you have already learned.
I think that the unique thing about this course is that the narrator questions you. This questioning forces you to think and respond because you want to do well. I usually cannot respond in the time allotted so I stop the tape. Also my goal is to respond faster.
First, I love the narrator's voice. Second, I like how he phrases his questions to you. I like the reminders.
I live in Miami and want to learn Spanish so badly. I have a southern accent which does not help because I drag my words out. I am ashamed to say how long I have owned and used Rosetta Stone and how many Spanish classes that I have quit, including one last month. In other words, I have gotten no where with Spanish until now. I was in class with a guy who swore by the Pimsleur Method and I saw his progress and the lack of mine. My main comment is: Thanks, Paul Pimsleur. I did not believe that learning Spanish was a possibility for me. I also want to add that I am 64 years old - "old dog - new tricks!"
It would have been better if it had been accompanied with a book, PDF, notes or something. I am new at learning Spanish and I could not understand what was going on. I noticed that the chapters were extremely short. I cannot imagine something interesting going that fast.
Maybe after I have more experience in Spanish.
The performance seemed fine with my limited knowledge of Spanish.
