Why Pimsleur?
• Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.

With Unlimited mobile, you learn fast as you roam free.

Still only 30 minutes a day, Pimsleur Unlimited is completely portable, and audio lessons are hands-free; you can do them in the car, at the gym, or while out for a walk. Lessons sync across devices, so while you’re free to ramble, the app keeps your language learning firmly on track.

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.

For personal use, to be able to use some Spanish in conversation with Spanish-speaking friend, and for travel.
Great learning pace and volume per lesson, great approach that is not based on pictures. My native language is Russian, I live in US and English is my everyday language. So I chose Spanish lessons for English speakers and find it great that there is no association of a spoken or written word with the picture: for my way of memorizing new words it would be difficult to build association of word with picture (if I see the picture of apple - which word would come to me first - English, Russian, or Spanish??). Instead the new Spanish word "floats" in my mind as a word not as a picture, and that's great!
Not so great - that reading lessons are not tied to the rest of lesson's content.

I am enjoying the product, but for me at least it takes more than 30 minutes a day. The flash cards are helpful and the quick match phrases, but I need to do them several times.

Don't look at the answers for the quick match as it is far too easy to chose the correct one even if you only know one word.

Very solid, organized, methodical lesson series--that works

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Level 1 Unlimited Software:

I was able to faithfully use it every day, and repeat the same lesson later the same day to feel I got on top of the lesson. With frequent pauses with my mouse, I was able to think about my every response. I felt that the progressions of each lesson was enough to challenge me every day, while regularly re-introducing older materials to solidify my learning. The lessons were clearly sequential, and sufficiently challenging, but satisfying when taking the time to review your hard won knowledge. I would recommend this product, and I will be purchasing the next lesson set shortly.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Level 1 Unlimited Software:

I'm very happy with the program so far, having completed 10 lessons. Even at 80 I find that my brain can remember the words, although my response time is a little slow. I've been surprised at how well it is going.

Love this program! Tried Rosetta Stone and just could not get it! Guess my brain doesn't learn that way. Pimsleur Spanish has been easy to learn and fun!!! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn a new language.
