The perfect tool to learn w/o a native speaker

I was skeptical about the pimsleur method, since learning a language as an adult can seem so difficult. After completing the first 30 minute lesson, I already felt like I was speaking way better than I ever had from taking lessons from a native speaker and friend of mine. The learning curve and words are very practical and linear, so everything you learn reinforces your fundamentals and builds logically until you're stringing together useful sentences at an intermediate level. Of course having some written exercises to work out will be the next step, so I will look into getting a basic book of swedish. No complaints here about this method!
