The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Spanish Level 4 builds upon your skills gained in levels 1 to 3 in speaking and understanding Spanish. The pace of recall and conversation moves more rapidly, making way for faster learning of vocabulary and structures. With even more direction given in Spanish, you'll further your abilities to understand and reply naturally and easily to a native speaker.
During the first 10 lessons of level 4, you'll speak about professions and work; express opinions; create complex sentences discussing the past, present, and future; and discuss modern technology. You'll speak and understand longer and more complex sentences, and you'll find yourself easily understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners.
In the next 10 lessons of level 4, you’ll speak in greater depth on topics such as your health, family, and the weather and use relative structures and adjectives to describe and compare people, places, and things. You'll learn new structures and vocabulary to help with shopping, vacations, and hotel stays. Conversations become more detailed and rich as your speech becomes fluid and effortless.
In the final 10 lessons of level 4, you’ll continue to build your language skills, and you’ll be speaking with a high-intermediate level of fluency, with a near-native accent and quick and effortless responses. You’ll learn to speak in more detail about vacationing: going to the beach and swimming pool, sunbathing, choosing inside or outside seating at a restaurant, taking a walk, and talking about sports.
Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you further practice reading Spanish, expand your vocabulary, and deepen your ability to read complex sentences. Topics covered include the family, eating out, medical terminology, travel, phone usage, and more. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

"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)
As with all of Pimsleur Language, it is excellent!
The confidence I have with the Spanish Language
The narrators keep the learning moving, while reminding you of previous lessons.
Must listen for 30 min./day
The tutors changed from the first three levels and I wasn't expecting it. The male tutor sounds like he's on the verge of a heart attack and the woman tutor sounds like she was either about to climax or inhaled 75 balloons worth of helium.
I've been spending every lesson mocking the narrators. I'd stop listening but at this point, I'm really committed to learning Spanish.
Disappointed. I liked the tutors from the first 3 levels.
Bring back the other tutors.
I could wile away the hours...
I wanted to brush up on my Spanish language skills, and this set of 30 minute lessons suits my drive time well. The emphasis is on family life and business travel, which will probably suit most people who want a course in speaking Spanish. Phrases like: the hotel has room service; the business center is on the first floor. It has a photocopier and computer. It's next to the escalator. Juana works in accounting...abound. All that added to my vocabulary, although I'd like to learn more slang, more casual/street Spanish. The best feature, though, is the opportunity to hear and repeat clearly enunciated Spanish phrasing. My accent has really improved working with these lessons, and I intend to complete Level 5.
after first three good courses No 4 is not good, No 5 is just hopeless.
they have no ideas, no imagination. recent courses were developed by midiocre writers without knowledge on linquistics.
it has. and it is TERRIBLE !!!
Audible practically does not allow return, because once you go through 30 lessons - it is too late to return
