Pimsleur Spanish Review
I first started learning Spanish when I was thinking about how to best optimize the time I spend in my car commuting to and from work. I found the Pimsuler CDs and realized that the lessons were 30 minutes each, the same length of my commute, additionally since I am alone in the car there is no one to annoy as I pronounce the words aloud.
It is a speak and repeat method, It speaks a piece of dialog and you repeat it back. Each lesson builds upon the dialog in the previous lesson, getting more and more advanced.
Unfortunately It’s not the most exciting dialog in the world, I found myself drifting off at times, when that would happen I would stop listening and come back to it later.
Pimsleur is not a be all end all and will not have you speaking in 10 days like their website claims but it is a good starting place for beginners or someone wanting to brush up on their skills.
