"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)
This has been the most enjoyable language learning experience I have had! It's great. It has helped me considerably in my work. Would recommend to anyone looking for a working knowledge of spoken Spanish.
I am an elementary teacher. I love to cycle, swim and walk my dog. I enjoy quilting when I can sit still. I'm learning to Scuba Dive.
If you want to learn how to speak Spanish this is the course for you. I was learning Spanish through Rosetta Stone for a year and I completed the first level and I still could not figure out how to put a sentence together and then I got the Pimsleur course and now I can have a conversation.
It is good to improve thinking in Spanish
Very helpful in understanding and thinking in Spanish! The pronunciations are very accurate and is enjoyable to listen too! Makes the commute entertaining and educational at the same time!
For someone who is just starting out this is the place to start. I know some Spanish so it was not helpful for me to start with this lesson. I would recommend this to those wanting to learn Spanish though.
Pimsleur training books are easier to comprehend and I've learned much more in less time, compared to the $400 software I purchased from a well known company that's supposed to specialize in languages. I returned their software and purchased Pimsleur which proved to be an excellent investment.
I found this to be very useful in learning basic (hello, where is the____?, and I speak a little Spanish) conversational Spanish. I felt pretty comfortable speaking by the end of the lessons and I am looking forward to moving on to the second course.
this is a very good review. I have spoken Spanish for several years, but it has become slow and I wanted something to help me review the language. This tool is very useful and I have enjoyed using it while driving to work in the mornings.
I'm new to Spanish so learning new language for the first time has been a challenge, these lessons have set me on a new journey in life and i hope to grasp this language with zeal and enthusiasm. Although I'm new i seem to grasp the information quickly. I'm ready to eat more brain food and expand my talents. If your one to increase your intellect and abilities this is the program for you. I have tried others and they have helped but not as much as this one. I give if both thumbs up.
flow seems to be right on the money
"Very effective language tool"
After using Pimsleur for just one week, I already feel that I have made more progress than I did with Rosetta Stone in one month. I would highly recommend Pimsleur as an effective language tool.
easy to follow, progressive. excellent book. I followed this after reading Spanish books and thus confirmed and added much more to my Spanish speaking ability.
"could be faster"
The book was slow but I know it was building vocabulary first. It's also difficult without a book to reinforce it.
