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 am planning a cruise to Bordeaux next Fall, and, having done fairly well with French in high school (40 years ago), thought it would be fun to be able to use it on my trip. Since I am not a total beginner, I can't rate it from that perspective. For me, it's perfect. I am BY NO MEANS an expert, but already have somewhat of a grasp of conjugating verbs and am really most interested in conversational French. Seeing a word helps imprint it better in my brain, and it was a bit frustrating not to have any reading lessons accompany the first few lessons, but I can see why those would not be useful to a total beginner. However, When you get into it just a little bit, the reading lessons begin to be included with each lesson. I love the way they introduce new words/phrases in each lesson and then wait till a bit later in the lesson to check and see if you've still retained them, and then repeat them in the next lesson. I also like the way they give you basics, and then ask you to attempt saying something different using the same sentence structure but expecting you to rephrase it to say something new with vocab you have just learned. So it's not all just repetition but you have to think about how grammar works. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to say anything for which you hadn't memorized the exact phrase. I am truly enjoying it and look forward to doing at least one lesson every day. Only con so far was that it took at least an hour to load on my older IMAC, but it works perfectly with absolutely no glitches so far. Since it took so long on to install on my computer, I've been reluctant to try installing it on my tablet, but will give that a try later. Having used no other French language product, I can't compare them but I am extremely happy with this Pimsleur French language program..

      Comments about Pimsleur French Unlimited 1-3:

      Pimsleur's step-by-step listening and repeating process is beautifully designed and easy to use. This is the 4th language I've worked on using the Pimsleur method. I already speak French at the intermediate level, but I find the materials helpful for improving my accent, and for practicing sentence structure and natural delivery.

          French Unlimited (1-3) has been a great ride. The audios can be run in a car, and the other unlimited components run great on laptop.
          There just needs to be more... more of everything, and higher levels. Am looking forward to Unlimited 4 being released.
