German Level 3 includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction and is designed to be used after completion of phases one and two. The beginning lessons of phase three offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You'll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics.

Where does Pimsleur German Level 3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The whole Pimsleur German series (I’m up to book 4) has been incredible. I’ve gone from zero german experience to fully able to converse with others in only a year.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pimsleur German Level 3?

Yesterday when I spent an hour talking to my neighbor entirely in German

What does Pimsleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You learn by hearing, so you begin to speak without an accent. People tell me I sound like I’ve been in Germany for years, rather than just 3 months

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

I love how it teaches you something and then has you practice it by applying it in all sorts of different ways. It keeps your mind alert and makes you speak very flexible.

Any additional comments?

I have been doing Pimsleur German for about 8 hours a week for the past year. I’m just about done with the fourth course. I just moved to Germany. Everyone is impressed with my German. I have no trouble getting people to talk with me and can hold my own in a conversation Entirely in German for a whole hour or more. It’s thrilling. No one believes I learned almost entirely through an audiobook.

I did make sure to master every single lesson. That meant going through the lesson once, then repeating it in five minute chunks over and over until they felt natural. I also did it almost five days a week for at least an hour a day. I did it while commuting 2 hours a day, so I was totally focused without other distractions. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it. I am already testing at the B1 level. Can’t wait to start Pimsleur German 5!

German Level 2 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction and is designed to be used after completing phase one. In the first 10 lessons of phase two, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex, and informal speech is introduced.

German Level 1 includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one hour of reading instruction in thirty 30-minute lessons. In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more.
