"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 studied many languages using many different methods. I find this Pimsleur approach to be the mode engaging and helpful. People tall me that my pronunciation is very good. This is because of the very practical approach that these recordings are based on. I love it.
"Learned enough to scare my wife..."
I bought this to start giving structure to the few words I understood, given that my partner is Iranian. It is a no nonsense get to work language course that gets straight to business and you start talking. This came as a bit of a surprise to the other dog walkers on those dark winter mornings as I came out of the shadows muttering greetings in farsi, but hey.
It is focussed at an American audience but other than that it does exactly what it says on the tin.
"A standard Pimsleur"
For those looking for an audio course this is as good as they get, the Pimsleur series. It won't help you read or write but you will get good pronunciation help and the sound and structure of the language.
"Very helpful language course"
This is a very helpful language course using Pimsleur method which seems much more the way we learnt our native tongue. Especially helpful with Farsi to avoid danger of mispronunciation.
My Iranian friends are impressed with my progress and my pronunciation.
"Excellent course in Farsi!"
Clear, cleverly structured, an unusually good beginners' course. Built up with well-timed repetition to aid memory.
"Slow down and teach us something useful"
They are talking way too fast and it's impossible to keep up. Should also include more useful words to begin with.
