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 German Level 1 Unlimited Software:

I love how the program teaches how to listen for phonemes and tunes your brain to make sense of spoken language. I wish that it were more grammar-heavy.

    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).
