"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)
If you're a visual learner, you can probably find a better language learning series than Pimsleur, but if you do buy this, you will learn, although perhaps not as fast as you could.
The words and phrases that it starts off with are not really the one's I'd tend to start with in a new country. THANK YOU is one of the most important phrases one can know. People appreciate when you can say that even if you can say nothing else. And you'll find you'll use that a LOT!! Additionally, although challenging in a audio-only book, another skill that is vital in Turkey is being able to say the words that one sees spelled out. It helps you learn even when you're not plugged in to the audio book. Obviously Pimsleur's audio-only approach can't help with that.
Yes. It's inspired me to see if I can find a language learning system that is more aligned with the way I learn and use language. I don't mean that in a disparaging way. I just don't think Pimsleur is a good match for me. I'm glad Audible has this and I was able to pick it up in Turkey and listen to it discretely on the tour bus even if I wasn't learning as fast as I might have with another system.
