    Comments about Turkish Phase 1, Unit 26-30:

    I listened to the lessons in the car, while walking, and while cooking to prepare for an upcoming 3-month business trip to Istanbul. When I arrived, my Turkish coworkers were very impressed that I already knew some Turkish, far more than other foreigners that had been in the country for over a year. When I started the first lesson, I thought there was no way I was going to learn Turkish because it is so different from English. However,I was surprised that I was able to speak and understand after listening to each lesson multiple times. After 30 lessons, you only know the basics and I was dissapointed that there were not more Pimsleur lessons available at an intermediate level- I want to keep learning.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I really would have liked to go on to the next level. I felt like I was learning a lot and then there were no more lessons. The audio learning fits well into my busy schedule because I don't have time to sit down at a computer to learn.

      Comments about Turkish Phase 1, Unit 26-30:

      Used the first 16 units a few ywars ago when I first had a project in Turkey. Now that I will be going back, I restarted those lessons and purchased the rest. I do believe the methodology of listening and repeating has been effective and I believe my conversational skills are fairly good. You do learn grammer as well indirectly by patterns inherent in the conversations.

      I learn languages best when there is wriiten support as well. As I did esch chapter I wrote down new words after checking with a Turkish dictionary for correct spelling. This was important as several words I would have pronounced and spelled incorrectly just from the oral. I very much wish written transcripts of each chapter were available. The short written guide included with the lessons 26-30 are not enough.

      I called the company to ask about transcripts and was informed that Dr. Pimsleur felt that maximum learning takes place with an oral-only mode. I do not think that every person learns languages the best way. A written accompaniment would aid a lot.

      Comments about Turkish Phase 1, Unit 26-30:

      Very helpful in learning Turkish. Since I already speak Farsi, I found many words to be familiar, and was a bit frustrated with repetition of words I knew. I found it helpful to make vocabulary flash cards even though the instructions say not to do this. With the flash cards, I could work on the vocabulary that was new for me. Also I wish I had known about the reading lessons earlier in using the program. Maybe there is a notice somewhere about them, but I wasn't aware until I purchased the final set of lessons.
      I am writing this during my trip to Turkey, and I have been pleased to be able to converse at least minimally with the people we meet.

      Comments about Turkish Phase 1, Unit 26-30:

      Have always struggled with languages. Used this to prepare for a vacation in Istanbul. Found it fun, easy and extremely helpful. I wish this series continued with a Phase 2. Though I didn't end up with a huge vocabulary, I found that my pronunciation was good enough to make natives think I could speak fluently, which sometimes was not an advantage!
