Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Spanish is the official language of Spain and 21 Latin American countries, and is an official language of the U.N. Pimsleur's Spanish teaches an educated Latin American Spanish, with speakers from Colombia and Argentina in levels I-III, and from Mexico in level IV.

The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to nearnative fluency. Spanish III, Comprehensive includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completion of Levels I & II.

  • The beginning 10 lessons offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You’ll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You’ll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and most importantly, you’ll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. You’ll be able to join in conversations effortlessly, confident of being understood.
  • In the next 10 lessons your skills will show everincreasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you’ll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you’ll find yourself responding effortlessly, and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you’re nearing fluency with agile responses, and a naturalsounding, nearnative accent. You’re able to utilize the language in subtle ways, and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Selfconfidence soars as you experience the language and culture; no longer as a foreigner, but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Spanish and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading Spanish with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    Comments about Spanish Phase 3, Units 1-30:

    I have used all 3 Pimsleur lessons and find to be very useful. 30 minutes a day is very convenient and practical. I feel confident in speaking Spanish in Mexico and Puerto Rico. I would like to see advance courses focused ospecific industries. In my case, I'd like a course specific to retailing. Overall excellent product.

      Comments about Spanish Phase 3, Units 1-30:

      My family and I went to Spain for about 10 days. I was really able to communicate in Spanish. I'm not fluent by any stretch, but I could understand most of what was said, and I could get my point across. One time, we had to tell the property manager that our hot water wasn't working. Another time I had to take a fishing rod back to the shop where I bought it because it had broken. I exchanged it for another. All of this in Spanish. Really cool, and it boosted my confidence. Of course we ordered food and drinks in Spanish. Very happy with the Pomsleur course.

        Comments about Spanish Phase 3, Units 1-30:

        I really enjoy listening to and responding to the lessons. Sometimes I do a lesson twice consecutively before I go on to the next lesson. I seem to learn so much better with Pimsleur than with college courses. I am learning to listen and to speak. Then I can use the reading lessons to confirm spelling. I progress to reading little children's books and signs and menus and tourist info. I am looking forward to continuing with Phase 4 after I finish Phase 3.

        Comments about Spanish Phase 3, Units 1-30:

        I use this lessons on my car to/from work 5 days a week. I have found them to be effective. I like the way they introduce new words and expressions. This product needs a printed text to go along with the downloads. How much more could it cost to add a printed text? I find myself going on google translate to find how certain words are spelled.

          I really do love this product. I started about 9 months ago and am well into Spanish 3. I plan to complete the 4 levels. Then, maybe German! The program is very easy to use and maximizes the learning process. Customer service is great!
