How to Really Learn a New Language
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
As a former ESL teacher, I recommend this program above all others. Throw out all your various language learning methods and keep only your reference books. Forget the silly stories and all the expensive language schools. With a slight amount of discipline - 30 mins per day - you'll be speaking and understanding more of your chosen second language with every carefully crafted lesson.
Who was your favorite character and why?
These lessons are perfectly constructed to build on previous lessons. You can repeat any lesson as much as you want while you move to a new lesson each day.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I spent a lot of time and money on teachers and lessons and learned a little but nowhere what I need to converse in Spanish in Mexico where I live half the year. I recommend you quit wasting money and get these lessons. Then join a conversation group and speak and listen to native speakers.
Any additional comments?
I still teach English as a Second Language on a volunteer basis in Mexico but I tell my students - get the Pimsleur method if you're really serious about learning fast.

Great AUDIO LESSON BOOK >,WITHOUT THE TRANSCRIPT
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. The advertising is wrong saying there is accompaniment to go with the audio book. There is, but it does not have most of the lessons for the audio book. OTher than that the audio book itself is great.
Would you be willing to try another book from Pimsleur? Why or why not?
I had a book with cd long ago from them so I thought I could trust them on this one. Not with out the full transcript am I interested. I am a mult sensory learner and I am no longer a child so audio alone is a slow way to learn.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
May be it is audible's or amazons fault why I cannot find the matching pdf files. I had re-downloaded as suggested and still, I do not see the correct transcripts for the first lesson I am doing. Still unable to find it.
