Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. Indonesian Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Indonesian. Reading Lessons begin in Unit 11 and provide you with an introduction to reading Indonesian. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format. This course teaches Standard Indonesian pronunciation as spoken in and around Jakarta. The first ten Units of Pimsleur's 30-Unit Indonesian Comprehensive Program, replaces the Compact Indonesian.

"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)
I have tried several language programs and I think this is my new favorite. I like hearing and speaking, there is a doc that goes with it that would be good to have in earlier lessons but it comes in the 11-15.
"Good Methodology Dreadful Story"
I like the methods used by Pimsleur but I can't understand why the stories are so poor. I have never head anyone speak like they do in Pimsleur. The sentences are bordering on the absurd.
Furthermore, a lot of units 11-15 deal with learning numbers at the expense of learning useful vocabulary and grammar. Learning numbers in a foreign language is trivial and can be done without assistance-ie. Learn 1 then 2 then 3 etc
