Critic Reviews

"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)

German Expanded

What did you love best about German Phase 1, Unit 06-10?

It added nicely to the previous lessons.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like the woman Frau, because she is outgoing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

We had a good time saying dot druben and my daughter liked that Herr sounds like hair.

Reading booklet only provided with lessons 16-20..

... which means the student misses out on doing the reading portions of the lessons properly, and I can't figure out why this is so.

But the PDF provided with lessons 13 then covers all reading assignments for this first course.

I use it to help me sleep

Struggle to get through a chapter. The repetitive dialogue was probably to help memorizing, but not advisable to listen and drive.

Can't download reference guide

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

good instruction

Would you be willing to try another book from Pimsleur? Why or why not?

maybe if I can get the reference guide pdfs to download

Any additional comments?

The only reference guide i can download is the unit 1-5 instructions. I had a chat session and thought I had it fixed, but then realized it was not the real reference guide the audio book tells us to reference.

Language learning at it's best!!

Would you listen to Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 6-10 again? Why?

I re-listen to all of the Pimsleur language learning audio books I have so I can learn the language I'm learning better.

What other book might you compare Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 6-10 to and why?

Any other Pimsleur language lesson audiobook is good to listen to if you want to learn a language. I have learned how to habla espanol this way and I am now learning German.

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

There is no story except for the conversations that you learn to say and answer throughout the audiobook lessons.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

no film

Any additional comments?

This is a language learning book. All of Pimsleur's language learning audiobooks are amazing. I guarantee that by the end of the first 5 lessons you will be able to have a simple conversation.. and at the end of 20 you'll understand them and really be able to ask for what you need. Worth it!!

Partial overview

So far so good (have just finished unit 10).
Hope It doesn't stay in this formal way of speaking until the end of the course.
But by now, it's just perfect.

Where is the reading practice book?

I love love the Pimsleur courses! I took the French course years ago and was glad for the Listen and Repeat break down. You get talking really fast and work on your accent and pronunciation in the safety of your own car or apartment. These levels get into the reading practice however the reading "book" (which is just a pdf) wasn't included or alluded when I bought the course. That's a letdown. I think ANY audio book that comes with pdf or any other materials when purchased as a hard copy CD should include the downloads. This isn't the first Audible audiobook that didn't include the material. Thanks for great audio, though.

Perfect! Sehr gut haha

Should be a definite buy for anyone and everyone that wants to learn German from scratch. I've got the first 5 lessons too. I'm currently at unit 10 of this, so about to move to the next set. It's fantastic. Definitely gonna buy all the future units too. Pimsleur is now my 'go to' for any language learning.


Spoiler alert: our main man gets a brutal rejection in unit 9. The lady is a savage.

Excellent and enjoyable

I'd like to say two things as a linguist. One is that this is definitely one of the most engaging audio language courses I've tried. It's well lead, it feels quite practical (although biased towards an American user), the actors speak clearly and are easy to understand and follow. I really enjoy the lessons. They use repetition and guide you very effectively.

On the other hand, I'd also like to say that this will not replace the more traditional ways of learning the language if you are working towards fluency.

I work with a tutor and find this really useful to consolidate and enforce what I've learned during my lessons. But overall the vocabulary is too limited and the grammar not covered thoroughly enough to allow fluency.
