I've just finished unit 10 and am still in awe of how much better this system is than what I've tried before (high school Spanish, other audio tapes, and DVD lessons). My accent is MUCH better since I'm not trying to fit the English pronunciation onto the Spanish spelling. I've even started to roll my R's despite my high school teacher having written me off as a lost cause in that regard. Yesterday I sat next to a Spanish-speaking family in a restaurant and actually understood some of what they said. Judging by the pace of new words introduced, I feel confident that with four phases available, I'll be fluent enough to really consider myself a Spanish speaker once I finish them. And as I progress through the levels, I have yet to feel overwhelmed. New words are introduced at just the right places, while old words are reinforced. If you're reading this and trying to decide if it's worth trying, my advice is YES!

Any additional comments?
After writing an earlier review criticizing the course for lack of written materials, I was pleased to find the PDF that accompanies the last units of Phase 1. Unfortunately, the vocabulary in the PDF differs from the vocabulary that was presented in Pimsleur Spanish 1 downloaded from Audible. I called Pimsleur and learned the version of this course we have available from Audible is an older version of the course, and we have not been given the correct PDF. The PDF available with the last units of Phase 1 is also the PDF that's also avialable of Pimsleur's site, but they don't have previous versions of the written materials there, so we are out of luck.
Other than this major disappointment, the audio presentation was excellent. Without written materials, though, I have a hard time distinguishing Bs from Vs and other letters. I would help tremendously to have the right PDF to study.
I have reported this issue to Audible.

I've learned loads of languages with this method and it's the best I've ever found. Love it's now on audio

Enjoyable method of learning a language. I am not allowed to submit this with anything less than 15 words. Done
