Explanation àbout Pimsleur to long.

The learning of the language is fine but the time wasted, about 14 minutes plus, telling you about the Pimsleur method is a waste of time that could have been used to teach.

Great way to learn a language

Any additional comments?

This is my first time using audible for language learning purposes and I am very pleased. I am a visual learner but the pace and repetition made it possible for me to still learn some Portuguese. There were a few times I had to rewind and listen to certain phrases again but I imagine this is normal. It is literally a foreign language. I would highly recommend this program. Each lesson is about 30 min and they recommend you only do one a day. They do a good job recalling words and phrases in the next lesson instead of overwhelming you with new material each time. Its a productive way to use your morning commute time. Give it a try!

only a few chapters. insufficient content

A good way to learn but keep in mind you need at least 5 of these to get by. they sell very little in each audio book.
