Comments about Ojibwe Phase 1, Units 1-30:
I received this course as a gift several years ago in the cassette tape version. I am of Ojibwe descent and wanted to learn as much of the language as possible. I had tried using dictionaries but found the complexities of the language too difficult to do accurate translations. Also, I had no idea how the language should sound. I listened to the complete series several times over the years, absorbing a bit more each time. The best thing about the Pimsleur method is that I found I was able to actually think how to say things that hadn't been covered in the lessons. Recently I was listening to a video of Winona LaDuke in which she began in Ojibwemowin without an English translation. I was able to understand every word she said, even though I wasn't expecting her to speak in Ojibwe.
I didn't have to try to translate the words in my head after I heard them...I just understood. It was a very affirming experience.
My only complaint is that, after all these years, there are no further lessons to take me to the next level.
