The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur works so you don’t have to. Spanish Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Spanish.

"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)
It was simple and easy to follow without having to worry about a book or paper.
My school text comes to mind and there is no comparison. this is way better.
More understanding of the material.
No film from this I hope.
You only get 30 minutes of material. It says that in the description so don't complain about it.
First 15 minutes talk about the theory of memory and good intro for reinforcing how to use the material in the program. Sets the foundational for your learning schema. It's free and gets your toes wet for what you're in store for.
If I were to create the chapter instead of just hacking out the first 46 min as a download, I'd increase the accelerated approach of learning by cutting out some theory. Turns out to be too much of harping on traditional methods otherwise.
This was a free trial, and I liked the way it flowed, but it was so short that I am not comfortable paying for any other units.
Yes, it is only a tiny section to give you a taste.
I was impressed with the way it was presented and the ease of learning. I am still trying to decide if I want to spend money on future sections that may also be very short.
I have only used the audible
narrator is good
I am very excited to continue with this method & learn many different languages.
This Pimsleur into is well presented. The pace is manageable and understanding the first conversation is a good morale booster.
This unit talked about how the program actually allows us to learn a language easily with this method. Then it teaches a lesson with some conversation and repeating of words to be able to understand and speak it by the end. Love it!
