The beginning lessons of level 3 offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You'll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You'll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and, most importantly, you'll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. You'll be able to join in conversations effortlessly, confident of being understood.
In the next 10 lessons of level 3, your skills will show ever-increasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you'll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you'll find yourself responding effortlessly and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
In the final 10 lessons of level 3, you’re nearing fluency, with agile responses and a natural-sounding, near-native accent. You're able to utilize the language in subtle ways and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Self-confidence soars as you experience the language and culture no longer as a foreigner but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.
Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30. These 20 lessons (approximately one hour) are designed to give you practice reading Spanish and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you'll be reading Spanish with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

A Great Learning Tool
Pimsleur Digital language learning is the best semantic instructional tool in the marketplace, bar none. That is not to degrade Rosetta Stone, also a fine learning product, its just that I find Pimsleur provides an even better inculcation of the language. The program contains thirty minute lessons or conversations in which one must partake.
The sessions start with a short conversation in the subject or to-be-learned-language which one must listen to; are relative easy to hear and usually understandable, although in the subject language. Imbedded in that conversation are elements of past and the upcoming lesson. Then one goes through sentences in your native language and are asked to – based on past learning sessions – speak the subject language. After you have had your opportunity the program speaks the sentence you verbalized or should have spoken. Often, the program will give you new words or idioms in advance but for the most part one is expected to learn the words from their conversational context. It works! One’s mind begins thinking in the subject language. Each lesson is repetitive but not annoyingly, rather in a supportive fashion. Each successive lesson builds on prior lessons and are almost always referring back to much earlier lesson content.
It is not only instructive but fun. Of course, just abstract learning in not enough. One must find himself/herself in conversational context with the language in everyday life. Short of that opportunity the product is exceptionally good.

right into your long term memory be fluent
I credit Pimsleur for being able to test out of a Spanish class even though I had not worked with Pimsleur.for years. they introduce present, past, and perfect tenses by using model words in conversation. You are tested continually but so that you are very often right .. positive reinforcement very positive very nice. Every day I take my mp3 player for a walk.
