Good sample

You only get 30 minutes of material. It says that in the description so don't complain about it.

First 15 minutes talk about the theory of memory and good intro for reinforcing how to use the material in the program. Sets the foundational for your learning schema. It's free and gets your toes wet for what you're in store for.

If I were to create the chapter instead of just hacking out the first 46 min as a download, I'd increase the accelerated approach of learning by cutting out some theory. Turns out to be too much of harping on traditional methods otherwise.

Doesn't work on iPod

The crucial thing about language lessons to me is the ability to put them on my iPod so I can listen on the go... this 'free' track would import into iTunes alright, but my iPod didn't recognise it and wouldn't import it, even though it imported the rest of the Playlist I had it saved in. This has never happened to me before on the many purchases I have made from Audible. I'm not sure if this is deliberate on the part of Pimsleur, anyway, it has put me off buying the 5 Credit, full Phase 1 set of Spanish lessons...
