Comments about Dari Persian Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

I bought the 16 Pimsleur Dari lessons on CDs just as soon as they became available. I was already in Afghanistan at the time. I had started with Pimsleur Farsi before I deployed, because the Dari wasn't available yet. There is considerable overlap between the languages, but it was well worth getting the Dari CDs. The audio course really helped me to get more from the time I spent learning the language with local people and contractors. The Arabic alphabet has always been completely beyond my abilities, so I was glad to have an audio-only course available. Six years later, I started to redo the course, and was surprised that I had remembered as much as I had. I am glad that now I can buy Lessons 16 through 30 in the MP3 format and not overspend on what is now an intellectual hobby rather than a job requirement. This option became known to me when I was buying Lessons 1-10 in Pimsleur Swedish for my son prior to his trip to Sweden next month.
The only things which prevent me from giving it 5 stars are these:
1. I can rarely respond fast enough when I have to say a sentence of more than 3 or 4 words. That's annoying, but hardly a show-stopper.
2. I could really benefit from the syllable-by-syllable pronunciation exercises in the later lessons as well as in the first few lessons. New words with more than 3 syllables are just as hard to learn in Lesson 10 as they were on Lesson 2.
3. If I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars.

Pimsleur is SO much better than Rosetta Stone.

    Comments about Dari Persian Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

    I really enjoy using Pimsleur. I have used it for other languages before. I used to purchase the Cds but now I have tried the downlodads and they are great. The WETransfer is convenient for my Mac as the java does not work for me. And it is so smooth and quick to use.
