    "Overpriced"

    Overpriced, limited content. Much better material is available nowadays both online and in audible book form.

    "Spanish for Dummies"
    If you could sum up Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05 in three words, what would they be?

    Easy, intuitive, and strategic


    Any additional comments?

    I have attempted to take in-person Spanish classes, learn from books, and other recordings. I have learned more in lessons 1-5 than any other forum.

    "Excellent beginner Spanish"

    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.

    "Great way to"
    What did you love best about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    Lessons 01-05 were quite easy and I was able to remember everything I learned and apply it to the real world. I shared some of what I learned with a native speaker and I was told that my accent was almost perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

    My most memorable moment was when the words just rolled off my tongue when ask a question where I had to respond in Spanish.


    What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

    Expeditious and succinct.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.

    "I have to say wow."
    If you could sum up Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05 in three words, what would they be?

    After two days I can positively say this method really works for me.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    The methodical repetitions really help and you are making common conversations which help you to speak in sentences.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I have always wanted to learn new language but could never decide which course to take as they all claim results. Not to mention cost as an issue. I downloaded audible last night and used the credit to purchase this product after looking at the reviews. I am extremely happy with my choice and I feel that I will be speaking Spanish in no time.I will be purchasing the rest of this series and then other languages as well. I highly recommend the Pimsleur method. This product actually performs as it claims I am very happy to say.

    "Phase 1 for beginners only"
    Would you try another book from Pimsleur and/or the narrator?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I should have none, but this is for beginner, beginners. If you aren't a beginner spanish speaker skip ahead to a different phase (not sure which one to suggest) but don't start with phase 1.

    "A little slow"

    Only learned about 20 words. A little slow for me. I really like the style if teaching, though. Would recommend this for absolute beginners, not for people that already know some spanish

    "Doesn't work for me"

    I guess I am more of a visual learner. I kept getting stuck on lesson 5, for a couple of weeks. I finally gave up out of frustration.
