I have tried learning Spanish for years using CD's, books, college courses and Rosetta Stone. I cannot participate in even a brief conversation in español. Essentially, what I learned is that I am not a gifted student of languages. All the effort with little to show made me feel stupid.
Then, I was presented with an opportunity to go to Haiti and on a whim, I downloaded this course and in a few weeks of half hour commutes to my job prior to my trip, I completed the first 10 lessons. When I arrived in Port-au-Prince, I was able to comprehend and speak with Haitians far beyond anything I have been able to accomplish in Spanish after so many years of fruitless effort. I was told by my native Haitian supervisor that when I spoke, I had no foreign accent. Amazing! I'm strongly motivated to complete all thirty lessons so that when I return, I'll be even more conversant with the dear people of Haiti.

I completed the Pimsleur Haitian Creole course after going on several trips to Haiti. This time, I was able to get around and everyone was impressed with the amount of Creole I now know. They could understand me, mostly, so the pronunciation must be close. Please, please, please make Phase 2 a priorty! This language is simple. Completing phase 2 would make a person nearly fluent...at least conversationally and able to pick up the rest! Well worth the cost.
