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!

Worth every penny!

Each unit is easy to understand and is great for listening to in the car. With each unit I can hear myself getting more and more confident in speaking and understanding what is being said. I am heading to Sweden next month and cannot wait to try talking in Swedish!

Not a bad course

Like any of the language courses, you get out what you put in, it's not easy but the course takes a slow easy learning approach. Follow the plan and you'll start to learn. The course tends to provide a sentence, and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. As I mentioned in the title, not a bad course and I'd recommend it to help supplement Swedish learning.
