"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)
Make it a bit less repetitive and give more time to answer back.
Yes! I have tried other learning tools but only Pimsleur teaches me the language to a point where I can impress native speakers and have functional conversations. Russian is the 3rd language I'm learning using these audiobooks!
I do not consider myself good at language acquisition but Pimsleur changed my mind. I was able to learn the most important words and phrases quickly and retain them during a 3 month stay in Moscow for work. I plan to re-learn Spanish with Pimsleur and I think it will be fun and easy.
Rosetta Stone was not helpful for learning Russian and was a total waste of money.
"A slow but thorough way to learn a language"
As someone who usually struggles learning languages I found the Pimsleur method very much suited my learning style. Each lesson starts with an overview of material covered in the previous unit before learning a new conversation meaning that phrases are well and truly drilled into your mind. Furthermore the focus is very much on conversational Russian rather than grammar. My only complaint is that clearer definition of when a word is male or female is needed.
