Pimsleur Spanish Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I love learning new languages.  I enjoy being able to visit new places and be able to communicate with others around me.  My favorite way to learn new languages are with Language CDs.  I like the way they are structured.  I find that by listening to the words being spoken and repeating, it helps me to memorize and pronounce properly.  It also helps me learn the structure of the word, term or sentence and use it in the proper way.

One of my favorite Language Lesson CD courses is the Pimsleur Spanish Lesson.

I really am enjoying the Pimsleur Spanish Lesson CDs that I received to review.  They are so easy to follow along and the training is very simple.  I like the clear voices and approach that used to teach me.  I was able to speak some sentences right away after listening to my training CDs.

• Highly effective, 100% audio-based learning
• Based on Dr. Pimsleur's famous research. Learn the Spanish language simply by listening & speaking
• Perfect for travelers, business executives, students & anyone who wants to hold real conversations
• No reading, writing, memorization, textbooks
• Just 30-minutes/day!
• Easily download onto your mp3 player
• No software The Pimsleur method is an audio-only approach unlike any other available. Its revolutionary scientific system allows you to lock language material in your brain after just one listen! Takes you from beginner Spanish to a basic intermediate level in thirty, 30-minute Pimsleur Spanish lessons - 16 hours of real-life speaking sessions on 16 Spanish language learning audio CDs.

I like how the structure is set up to help me understand and learn each course.  Pimsleur takes its time to be sure I am understanding and remembering each course.

• Initiate & hold face-to-face conversations
• Handle everyday situations - ask for information, directions, & give basic information about yourself
• Participate in casual conversations
• Avoid basic cultural errors & handle travel requirements
• Establish rapport with strangers in foreign countries
• Begin sounding out words with native-like pronunciation About Dr. Pimsleur: Dr. Paul Pimsleur was a legendary linguist at universities around the world. His world-famous, scientifically-proven Pimsleur method has helped millions of people learn new languages quickly & easily. Featured on PBS - Purchased by the FBI.

I highly recommend this  course and encourage everyone to try and learn a new language.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
