Don't waste your money or credit

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I am very disappointed that I paid money for a thirty minute introduction, and not one word of Spanish was spoken or taught. There was nothing in the blurb that told me I was buying an introduction. It should have been included in the first lesson rather than a separate audio book. I feel rather ripped off.


What could Pimsleur have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Don't charge for the instructions, include that in your first lesson


Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

I have no issue with the narrator


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Spanish Phase 1, Unit 01-05?

I think I've made my point


Any additional comments?

This is the first poor review I have written but I feel so angry about this that I was compelled to complain

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.
