        Comments about German, Conversational:

        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!

            Comments about German, Conversational:

            I have your programs for czech and french. They are very useful for getting up to speed in the language. I'm not fluent, but I feel less like the "ugly American" when I'm traveling. And many people have complimented me on my ability to speak their languages without an accent. thanks lots.

              As a former member of the French Foreign Legion and bodyguard who's lived in 9 countries and worked in twenty more I've tried EVERY single language program available.
              Aside from living in the country Dr Pimsleur's system is hands down the best one I've tried for learning a language. Sheer genius.
