"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 need constant repetition to remember anything and this works great for me setting the pace. It is easy to pracice while on a long commute to and fro work.
I listened to and pacticed a bunch of the phrases, but when I got Korea and tried to use them, I found the expressions to be way too formal and not the way people actually spoke. Think of the way you'd talk to the president, or your boss at an interview. A lot of people were put off by the formality of the expressions when I used them. After I have studied Korean more formally in a classroom did I get a better understanding of the expressions being taught by pimsleur. If all you're looking for is some survival phrases check out some videos on YouTube like talk to me in Korean, or something along those lines. If you want to actually learn Korean well you should invest in an actual class. It's very important to learn to read Korean in order to understand proper pronunciation. If I still lived in America I would try to find a community college that taught it. It's difficult for me to find good classes for English speakers here in Korea. The classes I take now are online, through Korean digital academy. Good luck!
