"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
It seems that it is a good program, but it isn't for a true beginner. I am an ESL teacher and I found that I would not be able to use this program on most of my students as they have little knowledge of the English language. The first English sentence that opens the program is very long and the man and woman speak in a formal manner in which would be weird for most native speakers to talk. I would not recommend this program for a native Arabic speaker that is just beginning English. If you use this program, you should have a little bit of knowledge on how we pronounce letters as well as some basic words such as nouns and verbs before beginning this program.
