Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Lessons 16-20 MP3:

I have found the lessons really helpful and am combining with french classes As I have progressed I need to listen to each one a couple of times to ensure I have fully understood the pronunciation But it is easy to use and versatile I don't think I would have progressed as much just with lessons
The only draw back is not seeing the language written as I am a very visual person and have also made some mistakes with understanding what what was But i would certainly recommend Pimsleur Language

Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Lessons 16-20 MP3:

since I use it when I drive to work it has been a good experience overall.
I think the reading lessons are just about useless since they don't tell you what the words or phrases mean and don't repeat how to pronounce the phrases.
The program would be a lot better if it had more explainations of how and why words are conjugated, I understand they are trying to mimic how a child learns but a child picks it up over many years if there were better verbal explainations and/or reading lessons it could be understood much faster.
Overall though since I listen to it on my long drives to work it has worked out okay

    Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Lessons 16-20 MP3:

    I have used a variety of language learning systems, both as a student and a teacher in college and language schools. In my experience, Pimsleur has been the best so far.

    From my perspective, this method has hit the nail on the head by "encoding" language into the brain in a similar way as we learned it as children or young teens.

    I try to do one lesson per weekday on my way back and forth during my commute instead of listening to music or radio programs.

      Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Lessons 16-20 MP3:

      I use Pimsleur in the car every day, and I sometimes use it even while I ride my bike. I started with Lesson 1. Seven weeks later I am already on Lesson 28.

      The great thing is that I am learning French and having fun at the same time. I actually look forward to the lessons, and I find myself parked in the garage not wanting to quit. Compared to the fiasco that was my one-year French course in college (49 years ago!), Pimsleur is like a miracle.

      The one minor weakness is already very well known and very often decried: Pimsleur refuses to provide transcripts. While it hinders learning, the refusal is a rational business decision. With transcripts available it would be too easy for crooks to reproduce the lessons and drive Pimsleur out of business. Crooks will always be with us, so there it probably nothing that can be done about it.
