4.0 out of 5 stars good technique--course is too short
The Pimsleur method really works. The type of repetition it usese is timed in such a way that the phrases really do stay with you and learning becomes so much easier than book learning.
The Romanian course is rather short (only 10 classes). It would be great if they were longer and more in depth like some of the other languages that Pimsleur courses offer.

To its credit, the Romanian tapes contained in this volume were an excellent way to practice proper Romanian pronunciataion. And, they were a valuable resource for learning the Romanian language.
The tapes started simply and gradually increased in complexity as they progressed. Unfortunately, the transition between tapes was too gradual. When progressing through the tapes, as few as three or four words were added in a single 1/2 hour tape.
In my opinion, Pimleur (sp?) missed the primary advantage of the tape format -- the ability to replay them until they are mastered. By missing this point, they only placed 2 hours of material on 5 hours of tape.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars, Sept. 22 2003

This review is from: Romanian: Learn to Speak and Understand Romanian with Pimsleur Language Programs (Audio CD)
I didn't purchase this course but found it at the library and decided to try it out...It's a good start that helps you with proper pronunciataion but it's a little slow and repetitive and only a few new words are added with each new unit lesson.
But aside from that....It's a fun way to learn....I did it in my car...it's very easy and quick and the method does work well...it's easy to remember! And it also gives you a lot of time to respond so you don't have to stop the disc or pause...which is very nice...you don't feel like you're rushed...
