Product Description

Review

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." -- AudioFile Magazine

"EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE...each section within the lessons is short enough to hold our attention, and there is enough repetition to teach even those who consider themselves slow learners...Pimsleur [programs] are extremely thorough and easy to use -- quite lively!" -- Boston Herald

"Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish (or Russian, Italian, and Japanese) while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!" -- New York Daily News

"Designed for the ear and not the eye...the lessons provide PERFECT 30-minute bites of work." -- St Louis Post-Dispatch

"Learn to habla español or parlez français before your next trip aboard. The interactive LESSONS CHALLENGE STUDENTS to use new words in conversation instead of memorize them." -- American Way (American Airlines inflight magazine)

"I tried other language programs with little success...This is the best by far!" -- Pamela A. Mitchell, Pilot, International Society of Women Airline Pilots

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.

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.

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.

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!.

Just finished lesson two. Using this system makes it easy to understand and remember. Can't wait to get to Lesson 16.

I found the CDs continually reviewing past lessons. They provide enough time to think and answer between questions. They could break down some new words that they are introducing that are hard to pronousate for English speakers
