Only one lesson

Note: Most Pimsleur downloads are five to ten lessons. I hadn't noticed that this is only one.

Excellent resource, but aimed at an adult audience

I think the method of teaching is very good and effective, and is specifically designed to audio. I did have a problem though. I bought the audiobook to teach Polish to my children. Unfortunately this resource, in common with all others I tried, is aimed at the tourist, and an American tourist in particular. Consequently vocabulary focus is such that kids are plain bored: "I am an American. Are you and American?", street addresses, directions, etc. All quite difficult words to pronounce and not useful to children. It would be wonderful if this method could be adapted for younger listeners.
