5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, Oct. 22 2003

This review is from: Spanish II, Comprehensive: Learn to Speak and Understand Latin American Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs (Audio CD)
I used the previous edition of Pimsleur Spanish II, but I'm sure this edition is only improved.
Pimsleur's level two Spanish lessons continue the excellence of level one. Each lesson begins with a dialogue in Spanish to sharpen your listening comprehension. Then it proceeds to a combination of techniques. You are given a sentence in English to recite in Spanish, or instructed in Spanish to say something in Spanish, changing the verbs to fit your response. When new words or phrases are introduced, they are repeated and used in different contexts so you can remember them. The tapes give you time to repeat out loud to fix the words, sentences or phrases in your mind. The pauses aren't long enough for you to translate from English to Spanish in your mind; you have to respond somewhat quickly in Spanish, as you would in a conversation with a Spanish speaker.
These lessons make adroit use of repetition. If a word or phrase is introduced at the beginning of a lesson, it will pop up again toward the end. Grammatical points and vocabulary introduced in earlier lessons will come up again in later lessons, to give you a chance to recall them. These techniques make Pimsleur superior to other language self-study programs.
This is a wonderful program, and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent as usual, Dec 21 2003

This review is from: Spanish II, Comprehensive: Learn to Speak and Understand Latin American Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs (Audio CD)
Continues on the excellent track from the first series of CD's. You may have to listen a few times to the CD's, but if it was too easy, you'd probably regret the high price tag. This is my third Pimsleur series and I continue to be impressed.
Might want to pick this one up used to make this on a bit more affordable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for self-study, Dec 7 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spanish II, Comprehensive: Learn to Speak and Understand Latin American Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs (Audio CD)
The best self-study language program I've come across. Each session builds on previous lessons to improve fluency and vocabulary. You can learn a language while doing other tasks (household chores, etc.)
