Pimsleur's supplementary material is missing

Would you consider the audio edition of Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15 to be better than the print version?

I'm putting my review here, for the first units for phase 1, even though I'm now on unit 23 because I wish someone had prepared me for what's to come. I sailed right through until later units when verb conjugation began. I was constantly tripped up but the verb "to be" and felt stupid. It was then I discovered through reading reviews for the later units of phase 1 that Pimsleur has created written supplements that Audible doesn't provide. You only get this material if you buy the lessons from Pimsleur's site. The PDF provided by Audible is merely an explanation of the Pimsleur learning method and is not specific to the course. Reading about the missing materials, I realized I needed to see written explanations before I could understand the finer points of verb conjugation. Luckily, this information is readily available on the internet, and I after searching out explanations there I was able to progress. Even found a site that has English/Spanish flashcards. It could be that doing web searches for targeted questions is more effective than passively printing out study guides. I agree with Pimsleur that hearing the spoken language is the best way to learn. After all, that's the way most of us learn how to speak our first language, before we know how to read. By listening and repeating what you hear, we eventually will gain an intuitive sense of what sounds right in phrasing and grammar.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Spanish phase 2 in this series.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes. Hearing the spoken language is the only way to learn to speak it properly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Despite the missing written materials, I recommend buying the course through Audible. It's well worth the points because if you stick with it you will truly learn to speak Spanish. You can work around not having the supplements by doing web searches for answers to your questions as you go.

It works but it gets harder!

I have been working my way through each lesson. The first five were pretty easy to get through. The second phase took me a little longer. This phase took almost two weeks to get through. They start to put a lot of new words in as you get through it. Stick to it. I just keep doing each lesson over each day until I feel I got it. The next day, I start the next one.

If you learn by repetition, this is for you.

I have tried several different language methods over the years, but Pimsleur really helps me to retain the new language without challenge. Very pleased and will continue to use.

Warning - Latin American Spanish course

Good course, but you'll probably need to go over the material several times to get the gist. You talk a lot about buying and drinking beer.
