Works well for me

Pimsleur - Language Learning Spanish has helped me with my conversation skills. I usually prefer seeing the written form of everything that I am learning while studying a language, but find that while I still “need” to see the written form at some point (I subscribe to the Premium version and complete the exercises after each lesson or find translations if necessary), the Pimsleur lessons require that I focus on speaking and mimicking and consequently, I think that my conversational skills are improving rapidly. I have taken very beginning level Spanish classes and used Duolingo off and on so I do have some knowledge of Spanish grammar which I know assists me while studying the Pimsleur lessons. I can’t speak to whether or not I would enjoy the Pimsleur lessons as much if I had had no exposure to Spanish, but I am very happy with the progress that I think I am making with these lessons.

Makes a huge difference.

I listen to Pimsleur on the app on my way to and from work each day. I am learning Japanese through Duolingo, books, flash cards, Rosetta Stone, etc. as well. However doing these Pimsleur lessons has been a huge leap forward in my understanding of the language and my confidence. I feel like I am having full conversations in Japanese each day, and I have to practice listening and responding. This has filled me with confidence for speaking to real people later. It also has sped up my learning. At first I struggled to put my thoughts in order and respond to the lesson before the answer was given. Over time, my ability to translate what i want to say has gotten faster and faster thanks to the Pimsleur lessons. Overall this program is probably the best step I have made forward in my pursuit of learning Japanese.

Thanks. Keep it up. You've got this!

I am not the kind of guy who just loves a good, juicy, book on grammar. (I’d rather go to the dentist.) I’m extremely active, travel a lot, and I communicate for a living. I go to Central America a lot and NO ONE you’re going to encounter in daily life is an expert in Spanish grammar in Central America, as is the case with English in the USA.

I have had the luxury of having access to R. Stone and the Bbl app.


Pimsleur? YEP.

It’s different. It’s way better. It’s not a pain. I don’t get annoyed. I learn EXTREMELY QUICKLY. And it’s almost weird; I live in an area of Los Angeles where there are tons of Spanish speakers and I find myself walking around listening in on other’s conversations without even meaning to. It’s pretty fascinating. (Apparently… I am considered attractive to some in the Latin American culture… who knew... :-)

I no longer need the basic stuff but you know, who wants to only know how to order a beer and where the bathrooms are in conversation? It’s nice to talk about the things that people really care about, so I’m refreshing now and will go as advanced as the course goes. I’ve had the Pimsleur audio course for years, and I have now abandoned everything else except for the Pimsleur app. It. Is. Different. Better.

Do iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!
