Easy to Use

I found Pimsleur's German Phase 1 very easy to use and understand. The format is excellent. It eases you into the language and through continuous repetition plants the language in your long term memory. The repetitiveness is by no means tedious and the course constantly challenges you to think for yourself by forming sentences from the vocabulary you have learned. It does not overload you either with information but instead gradually introduces additional vocabulary. The tutor goes back on previous units as a refresher every so often which ensures that earlier lessons are not forgotten. I would recommend this method of language learning and look forward to starting lessons 6-10.

An up to date method in learning any language.

This system of learning a language is very successful. It really works. Just do as the guide to lessons tells you and you will succeed in learning a new language. I did German at school, I am half German and only used German at summer times as a kid when we would visit Grandma (Omi) in Germany. I could understand and converse a lot less then. Now, due to the Pimsleur method of learning I have a confidence in really understanding and holding a conversation in German. Very, very highly recommended for all that wish to learn any language in the series of languages.
