"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)
Overall this course is good and has goven me a good insight into speaking Vietnamese. I feel more confident and have used the language successfully!
The only two issurs I have are: firstly, the pauses are slightly too short, so you have almosy thpight of the right phrase when they give you the answer, a bit annoying. secondly, the words for older woman (Chi-i) and younger woman (Baa) are mixed up, as in they tell you that Chii is a younger woman on the tape. this is incorrect and led to an embarassing.moment in Vietnam!
other than thatn they are good, amd I have bought the next part of the coirse!
"Good for learning the basics"
This is the second pimsleur course I've taken and I find the methodology works for me.
