Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

I've used Rosetta Stone and I've taken 3 years of high school and 5 years of college German. I feel like I wasted my time and money. Pimsleur beats these other methods hand down. My retention level is way up. The method encourages success. Just follow their instructions. You'll be fluent in a matter of weeks.

Service and delivery comments:

I elected the immediate download option. It worked flawlessly.

    Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

    I have the task of walking the dog twice a day for 30 minutes. I usually listen to podcasts but I wondered if there was a way to make better use of this time to learn something new. so on the recommendation of a friend, i decided to try Pimsleur to learn German and it's been great. each lesson takes me just about the amount of time to complete my morning walk. For the evening walk I'm able to repeat the lesson. since I do this task every day, I am able to 'study' consistently each day. it makes my walk go faster, keeps my mind engaged and when I repeat the phrases, people think I'm talking to my dogs!

      Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

      I got chapters 1 to 10. The learning process was easy, well managed but painfully slow. I ached for more progress. I already use a few other German language programs, ( Duolingo, Rocket German, Mosalinga etc.). I have not missed a day in over two years with Duolingo. I may go back to a higher level of Pimsleur, I like the structure but need more challenging content.

      Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

      I've been enjoying listening to the lessons. They're only 30 minutes, which is doable, and you can listen to them several times without feeling bored (I get bored easily). I pair this with Duo Lingo, which I feel is a good 'snack', while Pimsleur is more of a 'meal'. It's given me a lot of confidence to begin speaking a new language.

      Service and delivery comments:

      It's nice to be able to access it from my phone; I listen in the shower, or in the car.

      Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

      I have only completed the first five units in the Pimsleur German series, but I have completed a total of 55 units in their Spanish series. Actually, I have completed those 55 units twice, being that I do each unit two times. There is no doubt that the learning methods used by Pimsleur are effective (very Ebenhaus). The material builds on itself and is repeated in subsequent units so that the memories are concreted. I would point out that prior to ordering the Pimsleur Spanish, I had studied Spanish for 2 years in high school (30 years ago) and I have studied Spanish in books quite rigorously for the past two years. There is no doubt in my mind that my success with the Spanish series has been because of my previous work in books. So, with regards to the German series, it is more difficult for me because I have no background in the language, but I have still progress rapidly and impressed my German(native) friends. I highly recommend Pimsleur.
