Romanian Phase 1, Units 1-30: Learn to Speak and Understand Romanian with Pimsleur Language Programs

Regular Price:$173.27

Publisher's Summary

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Romanian Phase 1, Lessons 1-30 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty, 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons of Phase 1, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading Lessons begin in Unit 11 and provide you with an introduction to reading Romanian. In addition, combined Reading Lessons from all the units are included at the end. These lessons, which total about one hour, 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.

    "Booklet (audio support) Incomplete"

    Yes, Pimsleur is a great AUDIO approach, but be aware that you'll hear, "Go to your Pimsleur booklet" somewhere around lesson 3 or 4 ... Unfortunately, the .pdf booklet that comes with this download doesn't include the information you want! I *think* the content is excellent, but true usability is limited until Customer Service can help out on the missing documentation for Units 1-10. My best guess is that it's just a scanning error (e.g., scanner missed pages and scanning software assigned page numbers, so it's not readily apparent). I'd like to think the publisher didn't omit essential support for the audible version. The Simon & Schuster CD version (also 2008) costs about $100 more at Amazon. Audible Customer Service is trying to sort this out, but meanwhile, I have a semester-long commitment in Romania next spring so I'm also looking around for someone who might supply the missing pages.
