The First REAL Self-Learning Language Course

The Pimsleur method really works.

I am in love with this course, because IT DELIVERS.

Not only does it help you understand and speak phrases in French, it also develops your ability to make your own sentences and understand what they mean. This books teaches you a new language and perfectly selects the stuff that you actually need to know and learn.

As I talk to people who are native speakers or who speak the language fluently, I can actually ask certain questions or have a chat with them.

I have been through the first 10 units of 'Phase 1' and I already am noticing progress in my learning and speaking skills that others notice too.

I wonder how much better my speaking will get as my learning progresses!

Highly recommended!!

excelent course, a true way to learn!

A brilliant course for both beginners or like me someone with background knowledge already. The timing and layout makes the language stock in your memory and easy to recall then link words you've learned with other sentences.

The theory behind its structure is explained at the beginning and makes sense. My brother has learnt Chinese mandarin though pimsleur and highly recommended it. Can't praise this enough, I want to listen everyday, its great!

Good course

This is a really good french course: it does work. I started to learn german with pimslaur first, and experiencing surprising success I also bought the first few of the french course. It goes a bit slower for me than the german, but I studied german at school years ago so I gues that helpes with that.. I go quite slowly with french but I notice that it is getting easier and the words and sentences just stick on me after a while. I think this learning program worths its price and it is really effective. I would surely recommend it to friends in the future (as I already did in the past).
