Book Description

Oct. 3 2005 Conversational (Book 1)
Spanish is the official language of Spain and 21 Latin American countries, and is an official language of the U.N. Pimsleur's Spanish teaches an educated Latin American Spanish, with speakers from Colombia and Argentina in levels I-III, and from Mexico in level IV.

Spanish, Conversational
•Sixteen 30-minute lessons of spoken Spanish language instruction. These sixteen lessons are the same as the first sixteen lesson of Pimsleur's 30-Unit Comprehensive Program.
•Each lesson includes an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures and includes practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons.
•Essential grammar and vocabulary. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions.
•No mindless repetition! Converse with native speakers in natural (and useful!) conversations.
•Easy, fast, fun and effective language acquisition.
•Completely Audio - anytime, anywhere. No computer necessary! Unlike expensive software programs which tie learners to a computer, Pimsleur courses are available in CD or mp3 format to meet your needs.

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.

About the Author

Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles:  the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called “Graduated Interval Recall.”  This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spanish, Conversational met all my expectations. Jan. 30 2010
By SuzCue
Format:Audio CD
I was booked on a trip to Mexico and I wanted to learn a few common words and phrases that could help me understand the locals. The eight CDs, with two lessons each gave me a great start to being able to "Hablar con los Mexicanos" and I found learning the pronouciation was easy with all the repeating they do. Each lesson starts off with a conversation spoken at normal speed that is at first, hard to understand, but it's great near the end of the lessons because it trains your ear to understand Spanish spoken at this speed. The rest of the lesson is slower, with only a couple words at a time. Because there is no written books with this package, I recommend buying a Spanish phrase book that can clarify when a "v" is use or when it is actually a "b" or vice-versa. I had trouble with "g"s and "j"s too. There is a web site that the cds direct you to that shows you more cds to buy for further lessons, but I felt I had learned enough of the pronounciations to get by just using an additional phrase book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!!! Oct. 24 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm currently taking Spanish lessons, so these are great to practice with while driving or at home. The half hour lessons are well done and just right for me. Very likely that I will purchase the next set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Buying for the Beginner! May 16 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are just starting out learning Spanish, you will find these cds very helpful. I had studied Spanish before over the years, but I found this slow, repetive approach successful. The phrases are useful and there are both male and female Spanish speakers with slightly different accents which reflects how we'd communicate in real life. You won't become fluent, but this will definitely give your studies a strong start!

Good Stuff! Recommend it! If you need to start learning Spanish, buy Pimsleur! It could be even better if there is a short spelling list for some expressions!.
