    "VERY Beginner Spanish"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    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.

    "Easier to learn Spanish than Rosetta Stone."

    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.

    "I recommend the Pimsleur Sp[anish course."

    I am currently in lesson 21, but I decided to write the review for lessons 1-5 since this is where beginners begin!

    A year of Spanish in college years ago and a number of sessions with Coffee Break Spanish did not provide me with the useful knowledge that just the first 20 lessons with Pimsleur have provided. I recommend giving it a try if you want to learn some conversational Spanish that you might actually use at some time. I am searching out every Spanish speaker I can find to practice on. What fun!

    "Really works!"
    Would you listen to Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05 again? Why?

    It is good to improve thinking in Spanish


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Excellent Investment "

    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.

    "Very Helpful"

    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.

    "Muy Bien, Gracias"

    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.

    "Great beginning on an adventure"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    flow seems to be right on the money
