I got this taster course for free. Unit 1 isn't all that useful by itself, as most of it is taken up by how to use the course. The course (Phase 1, if you by the other units) tends to provide a sentence, and then breaks down all the words in the sentence, and the pronunciations for the words. This is a useful intro. As it's free its worth tasting and seeing if you could work with the Pimsleur method.

It's the introduction

It's just the introduction lesson you don't actually learn anything on here. It's about learning how to learn a language!!
