Why Pimsleur?
• Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.
• Portable + Flexible – Core lessons can be done anytime, anywhere, and easily fit into your busy life.

• Self-Paced – Go fast or go slow – it’s up to you.

With Unlimited mobile, you learn fast as you roam free.

Still only 30 minutes a day, Pimsleur Unlimited is completely portable, and audio lessons are hands-free; you can do them in the car, at the gym, or while out for a walk. Lessons sync across devices, so while you’re free to ramble, the app keeps your language learning firmly on track.

Digital flash cards and the Quick Match interactive phrase game provide listening and reading practice and review, and Speak Easy conversations help you to engage with the language. They pull you into the culture, fixing rhythm and intonation in your mind, and helping you to develop a near-native accent.

Every course is painstakingly crafted to highlight and explore the culture where your new language is spoken. Pimsleur Unlimited features high-res photos with light bulb captions that delight and inform, and covering everything from art and architecture, to festivals, history, vivid landscapes, and cultural curiosities.

What You’ll Learn
In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Twenty reading lessons are included to provide you with an introduction to reading. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with the correct pronunciation and accent.

Learning the sound of each letter alone and in culturally distinct combinations allows your brain to process what you’re hearing in the audio lessons from a new and different perspective. It’s a powerful combination that makes Pimsleur different from every other method on the market.

Review on Your Terms
Reinforce what you’ve learned quickly and effectively with flash cards. Created to help you practice the most-essential vocabulary, the cards contain words and short phrases from the daily audio lessons. The Quick Match interactive phrase game will help you to challenge yourself with longer phrases and sentences in a fun and fast-paced way. Brush up, or dive deep — it’s all up to you.

Expand Your Horizons. Reconnect with Your Heritage. Travel with Confidence.
Experience language learning like never before. Pimsleur Unlimited: easy, engaging, and fun.

    Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Unlimited Software:

    So far things are going well. I like the interactive portion of the program and the voices of the male and female and narrator are excellent. I have a problem, however, when a new word is introduced because of a hearing loss. It would be great if the naming of the new word(s) was paired with a visual representation of the word. Otherwise I have to wait until the interactive portion of the lesson to finally figure it out.
    Training the ear by listening for pronunciation is fine for non-hearing impaired people. It is essential for hearing impaired people, to have a visual however..
    It's to early for me to evaluate the program. I'll do that at the end of Level 1.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Excellent delivery and great support by phone. It's nice to be able to talk to someone instead of going online.

    Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Unlimited Software:

    Very user friendly and easy to follow. I tok French in high school (many years ago) so it comes back very quickly. I think it might be more difficult to use this product with a language with a different alphabet such as Mandarin, Russian or Arabic with no prior exposure.

    Service and delivery comments:

    ariived promptly and in good condition. Easy to install and use

    Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Unlimited Software:

    Using the product is great. I bought it for three languages! Since that time, two out of the three languages have been updated. The third hasn't. Called to ask why that is, and (without listing genders or names) when I spoke the the person they more or less hinted that I had no idea what I was talking about and shouldn't waste their time with such silly questions. So then I emailed customer support, after a few days they told me an update had not been released yet for any languages. Now this is the actual joke I promised you... on their website in the F.A.Q. section they have the instructions listed FOR THE UPDATED VERSIONS THAT CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSURED ME DIDN'T EVEN EXIST YET... So now I'm patiently waiting for the update. Great product though I love it!!!

    Comments about Pimsleur French Level 1 Unlimited Software:

    I have learned more French with Pimsleur than with any other program (Rosetta etc) I use the app on my phone while driving and the 10 second rewind button is great, I can also make notes with the Bookmark feature. I wish that there was a bookmark feature on the computer software. I like the reading and speech package that came with the Ulitimate, I also think the flash cards help improve my visual to audio understanding.
