What do you like best?

I enjoyed that the Pimsleur program had many aspects. The main part of the program is listening to audios and practicing with them. As you listen, it prompts you to use the words and reminds you of their meaning. After the daily lessons, you could practice vocabulary using flash cards and quizzes. It made the review fun and allowed you to see as well as hear the words. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would have liked it to be more portable. When I used it, it was on my laptop. It would have been nice to have on my phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure this is something you can practice every day. If you miss a couple of days, you'll have to repeat lessons. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program gives you real situations and conversations, putting the vocabulary into context. It's not just about teaching the meaning of the words, but how they are used as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The pronunciation techniques. Pimsleur walks you through each syllable of the word several times allowing you time to repeat. I used Pimsleur before traveling to France and after only a few months practice I had a lot of compliments on my pronunciation while I was there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I only used the audio due to time limits, I listened while on my commute to and from work. I think using the full visual would allow for better writing skills. My writing and spelling suffered from only using the audio Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Pimsleur for French and Spanish to gain the basics when traveling for work. This has allowed for a better feeling for the culture and relationship with colleagues abroad. It is amazing what just the basics can get you! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
