    "Quite Good"

    The Pimsleur method is based on research on memory, and how we learn languages. If you repeat a new word a few times when you first learn it, and then repeat it periodically after that, it will eventually stick in the brain.

    These lessons are broken into 30-minute sessions that are designed to be listened to one-per-day. They are similar to other language tapes: you listen to, and repeat, dialogues between a couple of Dari speakers, while a narrator gives you explanations. But there are a few key differences. You really do notice the periodic repetition of the vocabulary words, and it seems to work and lock them into memory.

    Also, there is no booklet or written text, you are listening and learning to speak the language, but intentionally not learning the Dari alphabet, which would be new and confusing to American and British students and would introduce a whole new level of complexity.

    Simple, enjoyable, and effective. That's pretty high praise for an audio language course.

    "This seems to be working even for ungifted me"
    What made the experience of listening to Dari Persian Phase 1, Unit 01-05 the most enjoyable?

    The introduction, while a tad too long, does help by explaining the method and the underlying rationale. By the end of the second lesson you can see that it works, that the pace of the repetitions mixed with new combinations actually does enable you to remember the words.
