"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)

Not impressed

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm not sure who would benefit from this the conversations are very limited and pronunciation was not native and sometimes wrong.

Would you ever listen to anything by Pimsleur again?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

No

Chapters

Overall I really enjoy the language method but the presentation of the audio book does not allow me to skip to other lesson units. They are all together in one file. This is not functional and needs to be changed.
