Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

First, I love these lessons. I purchased this product to be able to communicate better with my boyfriend's family and to improve my resume. I listen to each daily lesson twice a day, once on my way to work and once on my way home from work. If it is a lesson I have a hard time with I review it again the next day. I love how they use native speakers and break down the words that tend to be difficult for English speakers. I think it is effective because the lessons teach you sentence structure and grammar through real world situations/conversations. You really learn structure and how to talk with someone rather than learning a list of vocabulary like you might in a traditional language class. As I do more and more lessons I find that it is easier and easier to learn more each day. There is so much reviewing and incorporating past lessons that I feel like I am continually improving on everything I've learned. If there is a drawback I would say it were not having someone to check your pronunciation and help correct you but that is inherent with any audio program. It's a great product and I plan on getting the next three Phases.

    Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

    I listen to each course on my way to work in the morning. I wasn't sure if it would be a good program for me because I studied Spanish for 5 years in school. I hadn't practiced much for years and forgot most of it. Pimsleur has been great for refreshing my memory, as well as learning a lot of new phrases, and perfecting my accent. I can't really say how it would be had I never studied it before, but it has been really great for me.

      Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

      I have been happy with the course content so far. I enjoy listening, rather than sitting a computer to learn, as I spend most of my day at a keyboard. I have a basic working knowledge of Spanish, so it's been a refresher, so far. The lessons are beginning to cover new territory for me, and I appreciate that it circles back to previous lessons for review. I will continue.

      It's great but it needs just a second more wait time before one can answer the questions. It's a little too fast.

      Comments about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

      The MP3 worked great, but the lessons had no writing assignments and the reading assignments were not included in the download. I only got the answers and not the questions. I couldn't find the reading assignments, and I looked all over. I still need them for the last lessons (Still haven't done the Lessons: 17-30. Josh still needs to learn more and discover how to do the reading assignments. What he needs seriously are the VERB conjugations, and exercises to this effect. What I would like to see are TESTS at the end of each segment, like 1-5, 5-10, 10-15 and so on. These would be written tests (with answers at the back). He could use them and try to do the test himself alone without my help. This would facilitate his learning experience. Also, give more examples of VERB conjugations.
