An excellent learning tool! I thought I was "too old" to learn another language. I "studied" Spanish from the time I was in 7th grade through college. While I can read and understand Spanish, I've never been able to confidently converse in it. Now I understand why. Since purchasing Pimsleur's French Unlimited six weeks ago, I am not only understanding what I hear, but I find myself "thinking" in French and "responding" without translating in my head.
Other than maybe allowing a few seconds more "response time" during the lessons, I cannot think of anything that needs improvement at this point.
I am just amazed at what I have learned in such a short time!

      Comments about Pimsleur French Unlimited 1-3:

      I've been using the product for 3 weeks now. I do my half-hour lesson each day. The software is easy to use and the lessons are engaging. The first few lessons were very simple, then it builds slowly on everything you learn.

      It's very easy to go back and repeat so that you can practice challenging pronunciation or simply listen to a phrase again.

      You must focus and participate in the speaking exercises. It doesn't slow down and wait for you. You can't vary the rate of speech. I actually like this, because my speaking and understanding ability has increased dramatically.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Add video for the speak easy, so the student can see the person they're speaking with.

      Get the live cultural chat started!

      Offer one-on-one Skype or telephone conversation lessons (for a fee) for purchasers of the software.

      Establish local conversation gatherings that software purchasers (and others) could attend (for a fee) to practice their speaking in a live environment. Experienced teachers would facilitate the gatherings.

          I am currently learning French. I couldn't understand one phrase, so I called up Pimsleur. It was driving me nuts! I understood everything on the CD but one phrase. The folks at Pimleur were very helpful. They emailed me the English translation for that phrase. : )

              Comments about Pimsleur French Unlimited 1-3:

              I took French in high school and in college in the '70s, so I have some limited -- and very old -- knowledge of French. Prior to a trip to France last year, I took private French lessons for about 6 months. Although I never missed a lesson, and I studied particularly hard between lessons, I didn't make much progress.

              I'm going back to France next spring, so I decided I'd try Pimsleur this time. It was obvious after the first week of lessons that this was going to work for me. I just finished lesson 21, and I'm amazed at the results in such a short period of time.

              I think this might be a difficult product for someone who has never studied the language at all. But for people who have some basic knowledge of French -- even from decades ago! -- Pimsleur is fantastic.
