"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 love this series, however I feel that the characters are becoming more and more negative (complaining, talking about what they don't like, "the weather is terrible" etc.). Also, the topics and words are very business-centered (colleagues, work travel etc.) so I don't feel it's universally useful. Going out or kitchen and home conversations I think would be more useful if you're not a business traveler. But very good format, super easy and I will continue and finish the entire series.
