Comments about Pimsleur German Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

This is the third time I've purchased a Conversational Course from Pimsleur. At 75 it takes me about a week, listening once a day, to reach the 80% level of comprehension before moving on to the next lesson.

The way we were treated in Kenya and Tanzania when I tried to strike up a conversation changed our whole travel experience sold me on the program. I was complimented on my pronunciation, my wife and I were pampered by the Safari guides and hotel workers, just because we tried to speak in the language.

Our new Hispanic neighbors are helping me learn to converse in Spanish. Not everyone in the neighborhood talks with them but when I've asked for assistance pronouncing a word or phrase they step right up. We haven't become close friends but they certainly are friendly and are always greeting me whenever I take our puppy on walk.

I just started this morning learning German. We're planning a river cruise on the Rhine next summer.

Comments about Pimsleur German Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

I originally bought the German I introductory course (16 lessons) and it is fantastic! Can't believe how much German I've learned in a short amount of time. I love learning during my commute to and from work. I just ordered the German I full course and look forward to seeing how much I will know as I then enter German II. The Pimsleur method really works -- I'm amazed at how much I'm able to remember from lesson to lesson. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Pimsleur German Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

      I gave this CD set to my niece, who is transferring to Germany in June. She studied German in high school but had not spoken it for some years. My last report was that she was busy running errands, packing, etc. all the while listening to her Pimsleur tapes, and that she is "happily babbling away in Deutsch" the entire time! She said it was perfect for what she needed, to brush up on her words, sentence structures and pronunciation. Thanks again Pimsleur. I studeid your beginning Russian as we were going there on a trip, and was able to read and speak enough to communicate with locals, which is important to me when traveling.

          Tried other programs, but to no avail. Great if you spend a lot of time in the car. Got such a good start, I am ready to go for the full program. Find myself talking German in my sleep!
