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.

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 &quot;book&quot; (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.

Great Language Program

Great language program. I wish I knew that I needed an accompanying study book though. Despite that, it still deserves 5 stars. I definitely recommend it.

Good for learning for English speakers.

It's a very good learning method. But there is a catch: you have to be almost fluent in English language. I say that, because I am not an English speaker native, my mother tongue is Portuguese. Overall, if you try this method of learning, it's very hard to forget what you've learned. As any language, there is no magic for studying it. You should repeat it on and on, and speak it out loud, to fix phrases and new words.

Works for me

Realy works for me even when driving. Material is very well structured and enables to build skills gradually. I am not a language learner but I find this course very suitable for me.

Es ist sehr gutt!

I hope I spelled that right.
This is the second set of units in pimslur's German course and I'm continuing to make progress. At this point I think I could ask any german speaking person to have a drink (wine, beer or coffee) with me at their or my place. So singles take note.

At the end of lesson 10 there is a written component at the end of each lesson; they recommend that you don't do this portion of the lesson while driving and I agree. There is an issue with accompanying PDF. You will need to download it from the page for unit 1-5 as it is incomplete from this page

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.

I enjoyed the course and made good progress. I enjoy this audio style of learning. It is very effective and helps build confidence in the language.
