I run through each lesson twice a day (If I have time) and afterwards, do the review (flashcards, multiple choice answers). The program is unresponsive on my computer if it is open / running too long. The way it exports the audio and .pdf files leaves a LOT to be desired (read my product suggestions). I had my computer crash and reboot while I was using the program (not caused by the Pimsleur program... my computer is just getting older and more flaky) and the Pimsleur program upon restarting decided to re-update itself and somehow lose my progress and took one of my "activations" away in the process. Aside from that, it's been a good program.

The lessons focus on sentences and phrases that will be useful for a traveler in Latin America. The repetition of what I have learned does help to cement the lesson. On the other hand, I am more of a visual learner and the Pimsleur program has very little written material. Also, I often have trouble finding the right words in the time that is allotted for a response. If I could use the spacebar to pause the audio, which is possible in other audio programs, I would be better able to search my mind for the right words. I am not sure I will ever figure out the verbs.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1-4:

I bought Pimsleur Spanish, levels 1 through 4, because I truly needed to make progress with my conversational Spanish. I speak some Spanish, having learned some on the job a few years ago. About 5 years ago, I took a night class, and completed an Introductory textbook. I got to where I could converse about job related topics, but not much else. So, now, my church is planting a Hispanic congregation, and I really need to be able to just TALK with my new friends! For me, this Pimsleur method is working. I bought levels 1 through 4, and started with Level 2. It's basically a 30 minute conversation every day, but a conversation in which we go over and over all the little confusing things...like the correct endings on the verbs, and getting those pesky object pronouns in the right place, naturally, not by memorizing rules. This involves NO memorization. You just talk, and it works. Vocabulary adds automatically, as it goes, little by little. In using this program, I also HEAR Spanish. The course allows one to choose the accent that one needs. I've chosen Latin American Spanish, which is of course by far the most practical. (Way too many courses have European Spanish, apparently designed for travel to Spain, and that's not what we need here in the US!) Now with that said, I don't know what this program would be like if a person knew zero Spanish to begin with. It might work very well; I just don't know. Level 2 was fairly advanced, where it started out, so apparently Level 1 covers quite a bit! I am enjoying it so far. I do not find it burdensome to do. Plus, this past weekend, I was able to do better in conversation with the new preacher's wife.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1-4:

I initially bought a 16 lesson Pimsleur coversational Spanish CD set try the Pimsleur learning process. I learned a great deal and decicided to purchase the entire Spanish program from Level 1-4. I find I retain much more and am able to tune my ear to the Sapnish speakers to improve my comprehension. I supplement my learning process with a Spanish text and flash cards and I feel confident in my progress.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1-4:

Each 30 minute lesson does a good job of balancing new and old material. It pushes you to learn while still giving you the satisfaction of feeling accomplished. It's easy to see progression, and comforting to know that you will review the material in the next lesson. Try to do it in 30 minute blocks if you can, but even if you have to break it up between your drive to and from work every day, it is still worth it.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1-4:

I have tried many other Spanish software programs and I did learn from them. I learned vocabulary and grammar but what I didn't learn was how to speak Spanish or to understand others speaking the language. With Pimsleur I am really starting to speak Spanish and understand others. I have just started Level III and I am very encouraged by my progress so far. It is by far the best program I have tried.

That being said it is not perfect. The program does sometimes only gives you a second or two to respond and the cost is expensive. But all in all it is well worth the money and the pros far exceed the cons.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1-4:

It's easy to use and totally functional. The beginning was a little dry and boring but it gets better. I'm definitely learning more speaking than ever before in school. I just wish that there was some consistency overall--either they give you too much time to answer or not enough and you're scrambling. The quick flash and match games are really good reinforcement though. Definitely awesome.
