Publisher's Summary

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. Castilian Spanish Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Castilian Spanish. Reading lessons begin in Unit 11 and provide you with an introduction to reading Castilian Spanish. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format. Pimsleur’s “Castilian Spanish” teaches the dialect that is the official language of Spain as spoken by the majority of Spanish-speakers in Spain.

Hard to clearly hear some words

Even at the slow speed it is sometimes difficult to clearly hear the pronunciation of a word in Spanish. I find myself hitting the repeat tab too often.

Also, I would prefer more time to think about my responses. I feel rushed.
