The product couldn't have squeezed any better material for the number of hours that the course lasted. I took advanced Spanish courses at university years ago and needed a refresher since I do not speak as frequently as I used to. Pimsleur Spanish level 5 was the first Pimsleur course I've ever used, and I was particularly impressed with quality of content and the pace. Audio courses from other companies I've used in the past were dreadfully slow. Pimsleur's Spanish level 5 progressed perfectly. Lastly, the reading exercises at the end were also nice. I printed the PDF available on Audible.com along with the audio program and studied it at my own pace. It was a great refresher of the audio course.
Request: I would personally like to see Pimsleur develop Spanish level 6 and Brazilian Portuguese levels 4, 5 & 6. I understand that Pimsleur expects to release Brazilian Portuguese level 4 on November 8, 2016, and I have already setup a reminder on my digital calendar for that time. I hope that it will become immediately available at Audible.com so I won't have to wait.
