What You’ll Learn
This program includes all of Levels 1, 2, and 3.

With this program you start from zero, first learning survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to a high-intermediate level of speaking and understanding.

Every lesson contains an introductory conversation and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice of all vocabulary introduced. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension to promote proficiency. At the completion of this program, you’ll be speaking and understanding with near-fluency and with impressive conversational skills.

This course will expand your vocabulary, encourage you to share your opinions and interests, introduce you to less formal conversations, and help you to venture out to new travel destinations. You’ll learn to share your impressions and opinions, describe people and places, and convey your preferences.

Reading Lessons are included for each level. In Level 1, you'll learn to sound out words then phrases and sentences. In Levels 2 and 3, you'll continue to practice reading, improve your pronunciation, and learn new vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker.

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 Levels 1-3 Unlimited Software:

      The concept just made sense. I had never tried to learn a language where rote memorization wasn't employed. I could read Spanish and Swahili, but couldn't speak either. I never got very far in French, but found myself needing to understand German.
      I have just finished day 10. Each lesson begins with a conversation. Yesterday's was longer than usual, but without thinking too much, understood the conversation AND could speak it.
      They start with basic, useable concepts and build on it. After 10 lessons I feel like I could go to Germany and communicate my needs and interact with some degree of comfort. I am excited pleased. Thanks Pimsleur.

        Comments about Pimsleur German Levels 1-3 Unlimited Software:

        With a big trip to Germany coming up I wanted to learn enough to really immerse intot the culture. Having tried two competing products and not making much progress a friend at work recommend Pimsleur. I started with a couple of audio lessons and took to it immediately. I have struggled all my life to learn a new language but your approach really opened a whole new world to me. If I can learn this easily - anyone can. The focus on listening and conversing is perfect - my friends here me say things in what they think is fluent German and it really helps to build my confidence. I look forward to the lesson each day and even find myself thinking in German at times - truly amazing and pretty darn fun - thanks!

        Comments about Pimsleur German Levels 1-3 Unlimited Software:

        I started learning German one year ago with the complete Pimsleur course borrowed from the library. I had no German before that. At first I tried to immerse myself in learning the language, with textbooks, Rosetta Stone, Deutsch Warum Nicht, plus Pimsleur. Then, because I didn't have that much time, I cut out all the hands-on and reading stuff and just stuck to DWN and Pimsleur, which I could do while driving, exercising, etc. Here's what's amazing: it got easier as soon as I cut out all the visual stuff! I completed the entire Pimsleur course, I-IV, in about 8 months. Then I went to Germany. On my arrival, jet-lagged and confused, I spoke German to get help with train ticket machines and finding a taxi. I couldn't believe it - I was talking German! Germans understood me, and I could mostly understand them. AND I knew how to ask them politely to speak more slowly. :-) I also felt fluent, if somewhat limited in vocabulary -- the language really was lodged in the subliminal part of my brain and I didn't have to struggle to make sentences. I traveled with English speakers, however, and most Germans speak perfectly good English, so I didn't have the chance I'd hoped for to really expand my speaking skills. But I did have fun speaking German to waiters in restaurants, and I did prove to myself that I CAN learn a new language, even at my age. (I'm over 50.) I find the Pimsleur graduated-recall method to be really effective. I spent years studying French in high school and college, and I've never never as comfortable speaking French with strangers as I was with German. I think I may do the Pimsleur French series as a refresher. I hope someday Pimsleur will add more levels to its German course. I really learned to like German, and can't think of a better and easier way to keep it up.

        5 out of 5 stars. I love the Pimsleur Series. I listen to the 30-minute tapes during my work commute not only do I enjoy the drive, I am learning a language that is completely new to me.
