Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01: Learn to Speak and Understand Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs
Open iTunes to Buy
The Pimsleur® Method has worked for millions all over the world. Totally portable; simple to use; Pimsleur works so you don't have to. Spanish Phase 1, Unit 1 contains 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and isolated vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. The lesson contains full practice for all vocabulary introduced in this unit. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Spanish.
This is NOT a lesson. This on a 15 minute introduction to the program. If you want to pay $ to hear the instructions for how to use the program this is it! If, like me, you want a sample lesson to see if it will work this is a waste of money. Very deceptive how they call this lesson 1.
Pimsleur is a great program!
I have used Pimsleur with great success for Japanese (for which I've done 20 lessons) and Portuguese (for which I've done almost 60 lessons total for Units 1 and 2), and it's a great program…I think the previous comment of there being no lesson is inaccurate…there is a 15 minute introduction, followed by the 30-minute lesson 1, but the intro is important to understanding the philosophy of how it teaches (i.e., it's vocabulary is basic but not extensive…however, its strength is that when you acquire new vocabulary, it's easier to understand how to actually use it). I'm starting to learn Spanish, but when I used Pimsleur to study Brazilian Portuguese, people in Brazil were impressed with my pronunciation and ability to use the language after only 12 weeks of study.
All this is is an introduction video on how to do the program. Not a sample lesson
