    Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    I am really enjoying learning Croatian using this method for the first time. It works very well. So far I have gone through 15 lessons at about a lesson a day and will complete the course I expect in the next two weeks. I was VERY disappointed to learn that there aren't higher levels as this is truly working for me. (And I'm a teacher of English as a foreign language.) Actually, I wanted to learn Serbian as I'm going there next month but Croatian should be close enough. I usually listen in the car when doing errands. The pace is perfect for me and the repetition is well thought out. Thanks so much!

    Great Introduction to Croatian!!!

    By Benjammin

    from Melbourne, Australia

    Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

    This product has been a great way for me to gain the basic skills I. Speaking Croatian. I only knew English, and now I feel like I could go to Croatia and get by on my own. My wife was born in Banja Luka, and she was nicely surprised with how I progressed throughout the course!

    Thanks Pimsleur! I am looking forward to Phase 2!

      Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      I used this program in conjunction with taking formal Croatian language classes, and Pimsleur got me comfortable speaking real phrases from the first few lessons. My tutor even complimented me on my accent!

      I've tried Rosetta Stone (for Spanish) - it takes forever, and and the phrases it teaches you in the beginning are useless (who cares if the "dog is drinking"?). Pimsleur has an excellent grasp on how the adult mind learns a new language, and does an excellent job of building upon and reinforcing what you learned in previous lessons.

      My only complaint is that there isn't (yet?) Croatian II and III - please, please, please make these! I know Pimsleur can teach me declensions (the most difficult part of any Slavic language) better than any textbook!

      Comments about Croatian Phase 1, Units 1-30:

      I've been using Pimsleur since casette tapes. The system really works. What has be a change is the transition to modern digital formats.

      I had no problem purchasing the CDs and burning them to my iTunes a few years ago. The direct digital downloads were problematic.
      I had problems purchasing form the Apple store because the entire 30 lessons of a given language unit come across as one massive audio file. This means that it is very difficult to keep track of where I had left off.

      The new format for iPhone and iPad seems to work very well.

      Keep it up!

      I just wit there were more "obscure" languages available, such as African languages. The Swahilli only has one level !!
