    "I finished!!"

    We'll I DID IT. joined the other 53 Americans...now 54 that have finished level 5.! Level five is difficult. Lordy...if they gave us one more word for WAS.... Or would. I likely will repeat level 3 and 5 (level 4 was made for American spies posing as businessmen and they simply sold it as the next level.) and begin the Spanish easy reader series.

    Anyway level 5 is great. You become more ...much more proficient at utilizing future past and present tenses. I know I can communicate if I go to Sud or central America or Mexico and will b able to understand si hablan despacio. My accent is really goooood(Andy Griffith gooooood)too good. Really...lol... la gente quiere mas......but the vocabulary es pequeño.

    Again once finished....assuming you can't go to a Spanish speaking pais.... More vocabulary via reading and llistening(Destinos)plus repeating three and five will take you to the next level. In my humble opinion...pimsleur is the best. I really tried Rosetta. Tried 123 tried babel. No comparison...if your goal is to start speaking....and not simply repeating the high school Spanish experience...try it. You will be able to order dos XX CERVESA in no time.

    "EXCELLENT"
    If you could sum up Pimsleur Spanish Level 5 in three words, what would they be?

    Challenging. Helpful.


    Any additional comments?

    The product couldn't have squeezed any better material for the number of hours that the course lasted. I took advanced Spanish courses at university years ago and needed a refresher since I do not speak as frequently as I used to. Pimsleur Spanish level 5 was the first Pimsleur course I've ever used, and I was particularly impressed with quality of content and the pace. Audio courses from other companies I've used in the past were dreadfully slow. Pimsleur's Spanish level 5 progressed perfectly. Lastly, the reading exercises at the end were also nice. I printed the PDF available on Audible.com along with the audio program and studied it at my own pace. It was a great refresher of the audio course.

    Request: I would personally like to see Pimsleur develop Spanish level 6 and Brazilian Portuguese levels 4, 5 & 6. I understand that Pimsleur expects to release Brazilian Portuguese level 4 on November 8, 2016, and I have already setup a reminder on my digital calendar for that time. I hope that it will become immediately available at Audible.com so I won't have to wait.

    "Complicated simplified"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This set of lessons takes the learning to a new level. The Pimsleur people take the more complex tenses and present them very well. The progression in the use of these more complex tenses is also executed very well. Cudos, I feel like I've made some real progress!!!

    "great tool, very useful"

    I'm fairly advanced and found it to be a great tool with both extra vocab and advanced conjugation.

    "Me gradué!! I graduated!"

    I found the motivation to go through this by booking a solo trip to Colombia (no training wheels. I was alone). I finished unit 3 while in Colombia and I could communicate just fine! (Supplemental tutoring to help through chapter 4 and 5 to explain what's going on makes a difference!) starting chapter 4 was hard for me. Once you finish 4, finishing 5 is easy! Because of pimsleur, Language exchange sites eventually became a waste of time; But I love that I have language exchange friends. If you make pimsleur a habit, you can do it too!
