Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

The theory of increasingly spacing out vocabulary, the excellent enunciation and the thirty minute limit are pluses. The support staff are knowledgable and professional. The ability to buy five lessons at a time enticed me to try. I got my moneys worth.

I love the convenience of being able to use the course on any of several devices and can purchase smaller units until I am ready to move on. It allows me to spend as much or as little as I want to at a time on my studies

    Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

    I have studied Brazilian Portuguese, Swedish, a tiny bit of Italian, and now Spanish. I believe in the Pimsleur conversational and scientific approach. Whenever I hear someone say, I wish I knew how to speak ________. I always tell them about Pimsleur. I tell them that it builds your vocabulary in a very simple and effective way.

    Another benefit is that Pimsleur uses native speakers. You get to hear and repeat phrases and check your accent.

    I can only find one fault. My ancestry is Swedish and I wish there were more than the 30 lessons currently available!

    I cannot recommend it highly enough. Pimsleur now sells lessons in 5-packs for about $23. I suggest you try those 5 lessons. Listen to each 2-3 times and see for yourself.

      Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

      I live in an area with a fairly high Hispanic population and always wish that I could converse a little better. Also, I make periodic trips to South American, and would prefer to be able to speak in the native language. It has helped that I have a basic working knowledge of Spanish. I am not sure how it would be without already knowing a little. However, I am very happy with my progress and will continue (currently 2/14/2014), I am through Spanish I - Lesson 16. Mostly I enjoy being able to listen in my car. I spend most of my day in front of a computer, so I don't want my primary learning to require more daily computer time. I will likely supplement other computer-based programs, as I have time, but primarily wanted something that I could listen and respond to. I have noticed other people commented about needing a little more pause to remember and say the phrases. I agree, but I compensate by just either pausing my IPod or hitting the radio on/off button when I need a little more time.

          Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

          After not doing so well in high school Spanish and one on one courses in Guatemala, I finally think I'm off to a good start with Pimsleur program. The grammar and conjugation drove me crazy previously. I just wanted to be able to converse first. After trying the first five lessons, I went ahead and purchased the whole first section. I use it mostly on the Iphone and sometimes on my Mac. Apps work well. So far so good.
