"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)
Overpriced, limited content. Much better material is available nowadays both online and in audible book form.
Easy, intuitive, and strategic
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.
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.
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.
My most memorable moment was when the words just rolled off my tongue when ask a question where I had to respond in Spanish.
Expeditious and succinct.
After two days I can positively say this method really works for me.
The methodical repetitions really help and you are making common conversations which help you to speak in sentences.
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.
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.
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
I love how easy it is to go back and review while still learning the new chapters
This is a wonderful way to learn Spanish. I plan on getting the other parts of the program as well
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.
Easy, fast, and helpful
Helps you learn useful phrases as opposed to general terminology.
