I have been interested in learning Spanish and tried to study by using a text, but it was quite boring just remembering the word on the text.

Pros
-With the Pimsleur, I can study during the commute.
- I do not have to stop or play back and force the player to repeat the words to remember.
-The lesson plan is interesting. Before studying how to count or how to say days and months, they teach us how to say "I want to drink beer, I don't have any money, you pay for it. But I dont have any time. Thank you, and Good bye!" I am not remembering each sentence, but I can make the sentences. And I was able to do so in a week. I think if I was a traveler to a spanish speaking country, I think that is all I need to say!

Cons
-I'm not really sure what to do with reading parts... they just pronounce words and don't explain the meaning of them. Some words are ok as they were used in the lessons, but the rest of them are not used in previous lessons.

I am enjoying the product, but for me at least it takes more than 30 minutes a day. The flash cards are helpful and the quick match phrases, but I need to do them several times.

Don't look at the answers for the quick match as it is far too easy to chose the correct one even if you only know one word.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1:

This product has made learning Spanish very easy. I learned to speak the language and not interpret from English to Spanish. Maybe one lesson per day is a little much, I did the same lesson 2 or 3 times before moving on. I would recommend this approach. Love the fact I can load it on 4 of my media devices.Flash cards and vocabulary building skills a real plus.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1:

I listen to Pimsleur Spanish 1 on my way to work each day. I have a 40 minute commute and it makes the time fly by and I get my Spanish lesson in each day. Great idea... fantastic product. I only wish I would have bought all of the programs at once.

    Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1:

    We use this for homeschooling Spanish I. It focuses on speaking Spanish which is what a student really wants. It includes exercises where you see the written Spanish. You can also do review where you chose exactly which lessons you want to review. It can be very self-directed. We have not tried the on-line chat room feature yet.

    The lessons focus on a conversation and learning the correct pronounciation and meaning. But it makes you practice it in such a way that you really need to think about what you will say. It is not rote memorization.

    Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Unlimited 1:

    For personal use, to be able to use some Spanish in conversation with Spanish-speaking friend, and for travel.
    Great learning pace and volume per lesson, great approach that is not based on pictures. My native language is Russian, I live in US and English is my everyday language. So I chose Spanish lessons for English speakers and find it great that there is no association of a spoken or written word with the picture: for my way of memorizing new words it would be difficult to build association of word with picture (if I see the picture of apple - which word would come to me first - English, Russian, or Spanish??). Instead the new Spanish word "floats" in my mind as a word not as a picture, and that's great!
    Not so great - that reading lessons are not tied to the rest of lesson's content.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I'd love AS AN OPTION to be able to see the new words in written form, maybe when new word is first spoken. For my type of memory that would work the best: I tend to recall actual written words when I memorize or use them.
