Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program. Swahili Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units.

Comments about Swahili Phase 1, Unit 11-15:
The dialogues are good for building comprehension especially. Vocabulary build a bit slowly and they can be a bit too repetitive, but Pimsler is great for "hands free" practice while driving and so on.
