I've tried several ways and this is the best!

I've wanted to learn Spanish for years. I took two years in school and recall beginning to think in Spanish. I know that should be an indication that I have some aptitude, but all it and those years amounted to later was knowing what the Taco Bell dog said before reading the subtitle. I've tried every book and audio book that my library had to offer. I've spent $150 on a DVD set that promised great things. I was doing research on the best price for Rosetta Stone when I stumbled onto this method. Since I'd tried audio books before, I was skeptical, but since using credits on Audible made it such a great price, I decided to try it. And I have been surprised at the easy results! Because this method uses only audio, I'm not hampered by years of training in English pronunciation. Now instead of trying to fit the H into hablo, I hear it as "ablo". As the mother of a four-year-old, I understand the need to learn to speak before reading and writing. That doesn't mean that I can't learn to read it later, just as my son is learning to read English despite our idiosyncrasies. There is a free sample with the introduction and first lesson on Audible. Try it and you'll see.

Not worth the price.

Any additional comments?

The lessons are short and expensive. Very little new material is covered with each lesson, so at the end of the day I feel like I paid a lot of money for very little in terms of knowledge gained. If the price were reduced significantly, or the lessons were acquired during a really good sale then they might be worth it.

Very effective language tool

After using Pimsleur for just one week, I already feel that I have made more progress than I did with Rosetta Stone in one month. I would highly recommend Pimsleur as an effective language tool.

Great (especially if you're American)

Despite being directed firmly at Americans, this was a great learning tool. definitely recommend this.
