Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

After taking the French course, a language I only knew from the few words one encounters when reading, I found the German Unlimited to be an improvement. This is a brush-up course for me, but having the reading lesson reflect what was learned in the audio lesson (at least in the first few) is helpful. It gives one an idea of how the words are spelled. This would have been especially helpful in French where many words sound alike but are spelled differently, especially verb tenses, or where many letters are not pronounced at all.

Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

In general, a very helpful and useful introduction to the language. The systematic repetition is very well-planned and memorization becomes (relatively) easy. The increasing speed and complexity of the German conversations is challenging, but it's satisfying when one realizes one is understanding them. I have mixed feelings about the fact that the native speakers on the program have different accents. This reflects German reality, of course, but it can be confusing for the beginning learner. The most important negative for me is that there are no explanations of grammatical points (I still don't understand when to use 'viele' as opposed to 'viel', for example).

Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

I really am learning to speak the language. Very easy to use and can go at my own pace. I can't believe how much I have already learned. I am going to Germany for 3 weeks and wanted to know and speak a little before I go. Pimsleur ask that you take 1 30 min lesson a day and that is exactley what I have done. Some days I will repeat a lesson then move forward. I am getting the reading lessons now and really love seeing the words. I plan on purchasing more lessons when I am done with my first 30 lessons.

Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

Just finished German I and only started it 4 weeks ago. I did one lesson a day during my work commute in the car, and only had to review a couple of lessons. It does get more difficult as the lessons progress, but if you persevere you will learn it. Pimsleur programs have been for me the most effective method for learning a language. I completed Pimsleur's Greek 1, Greek 2, and French I as well. I am surprised at how quickly I learned to read German from the Pimsleur program as well. I am excited to move on to German II.
I feel ready for my trip to Vienna. I did supplement the learning with other German lessons on youtube such as girls4teaching.com, which visually show verb conjugation and give other tips. You may find that helpful as well.

    Comments about Pimsleur German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

    I really like the repetitive nature of each progressive lesson. It helps to reinforce what I learned during previous lessons. New words or phrases are added in to each lesson, with plenty of practice for the new words and phrases.
