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.

What You’ll Learn
This program includes all of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4.

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 for all vocabulary introduced. Emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension. By the end of the program, you’ll have gained experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You’ll learn to speak about your professional and personal life, needs, likes and dislikes, and to create complex sentences discussing the past, present, future, conditional, and subjunctive. You’ll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and most importantly, you’ll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers.

At the completion of this course, you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the language and culture with a deepening insight into a new world.

Reading Lessons are included for each level. In Level 1, you'll learn to sound out words then phrases and sentences. In Levels 2 through 4, 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.

Pimsleur's Spanish programs teach an educated Latin American Spanish, featuring speakers from Colombia and Mexico. Students can expect to understand the lessons clearly and to be understood by Spanish speakers everywhere.

I run through each lesson twice a day (If I have time) and afterwards, do the review (flashcards, multiple choice answers). The program is unresponsive on my computer if it is open / running too long. The way it exports the audio and .pdf files leaves a LOT to be desired (read my product suggestions). I had my computer crash and reboot while I was using the program (not caused by the Pimsleur program... my computer is just getting older and more flaky) and the Pimsleur program upon restarting decided to re-update itself and somehow lose my progress and took one of my "activations" away in the process. Aside from that, it's been a good program.

The lessons focus on sentences and phrases that will be useful for a traveler in Latin America. The repetition of what I have learned does help to cement the lesson. On the other hand, I am more of a visual learner and the Pimsleur program has very little written material. Also, I often have trouble finding the right words in the time that is allotted for a response. If I could use the spacebar to pause the audio, which is possible in other audio programs, I would be better able to search my mind for the right words. I am not sure I will ever figure out the verbs.

    Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Levels 1-4 Unlimited Software:

    I'm disappointed that it is only software based and not audio. I drive in my car frequently and using software is not the most convenient. I wish I had of researched more before purchasing;I am not that experienced in technology.

    Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Levels 1-4 Unlimited Software:

    I have completed all 5 of the Spanish courses and the 2 available courses in Modern Greek. It's a great teaching method for me because comprehension and speaking are always my greatest challenges when learning a language. And Pimsleur concentrates on this aspect of the learning process. You will not be fluent after completing the course, I would estimate somewhere close to the B2 range. Supplement the learning with a program like Duolingo to get up to speed with reading and writing and you will be prepped to take learning to the immersion level.

    Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Levels 1-4 Unlimited Software:

    I got the complete Spanish software halfway through the Summer, hoping I'd know enough Spanish by the start of the semester to test out of the first couple Spanish classes I need. That certainly will not happen at this point, but that's not the product's fault. Having already taken some Spanish classes, the system has yet to teach me much I didn't already know through the first chapter. That being said, I can tell that it IS helping me with fluency, comprehension and mental speed. You know, coming up with the right words faster. It won't have you able to hold any meaningful conversations before the first month's worth of lessons, especially if you're starting with no prior Spanish knowledge. But I have little doubt that it will be everything advertised by the end of the whole course.
