Synopsis
Conversational Spanish includes the first 16 lessons from the Comprehensive Level I. 8 hours, interactive audio-only instruction. Language learning with real-life conversations. What is the Pimsleur difference? The Pimsleur Method provides the most effective language-learning program ever developed. The Pimsleur Method gives you quick command of Spanish structure without tedious drills. Learning to speak Spanish can actually be enjoyable and rewarding. The key reason most people struggle with new languages is that they aren't given proper instruction, only bits and pieces of a language. Other language programs sell only these pieces -- dictionaries; grammar books and instructions; lists of hundreds or thousands words and definitions; audios containing useless drills. They leave it to you to assemble these pieces as you try to speak. Pimsleur enables you to spend your time learning to speak the language rather than just studying its parts. When you were learning English, could you speak before you knew how to conjugate verbs? Of course you could. That learning process is what Pimsleur replicates. Pimsleur presents the whole language as one intergrated piece so you can succeed. With Pimsleur you get: Grammar and vocabulary taught together in everyday conversation, Interactive audio-only instruction that teaches spoken language organically, The flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere, 30-minute lessons designed to optimize the amount of language you can learn in one sitting. Millions of people have used Pimsleur to gain real conversational skills in new languages quickly and easily, wherever and whenever -- without textbooks, written exercises, or drills. About the program: Conversational Spanish includes the 10 lessons from Pimsleur's Basic Spanish plus an additional 6 lessons. The 16 lessons in Spanish are the same first 16 lessons in the Pimsleur Spanish Level 1. Once you complete the 16 lessons in this edition, we are confident that you will want to continue on and complete the full, 30-lesson Level 1. When you also purchase the Comprehensive Spanish Level I Program directly from Simon & Schuster, we will give you a rebate of $150.00. Please see the bottom of this package for details. Note: The purchase of this product alone does not qualify for any rebate.

Spanish learning aid

I wanted to learn to speak enough Spanish to converse in at least a limited with people I meet that are native Spanish speakers and limited in English. I have only spent about 2 hours so far with the Pimsleur product, but I am very happy with it at this point. The words do seem to stay with me even days or weeks after first learning them. The repetition and pronunciation pointers work very well for me in recalling the meaning. A number of words I had never heard before seem well-impressed in my memory. I will continue as time permits, but so far it appears to be far better than a rote memorization. This is the natural way to learn by listening and speaking conversationally.

Pimsleur Conversational Spanish

I really like this learning method. It also doesn't teach you a lot of phrases that you would never need to know. Great conversational Spanish CD's,

Far exceeds the competition

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Far better than another language instruction audio that I tried. By the third disc, I was already way ahead of where I left Spanish in high school. I bought the course to communicate with construction crews that speak zero English. I complement the Pimsleur with the book "Learning Construction Spanglish" which has been a great help and has many helpful suggestions in remembering words and achieving basic communication both in and out of construction. Both are highly recommended. I did not hear very favorable reviews about that very heavily advertised expensive language course, but this one was used by a co-worker and a friend who can now communicate adequately.

Awesome way to learn Spanish!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this product because I have I bought a business with a lot of Spanish speaking customers. I love the fact that it's 100% on cd's because I spend a lot of time in my car. The only little flaw I've seen is I think it's from a little bit different region of Mexico than near southern Arizona so I've already been told a couple of the words and phrases are a little off but everyone knows what I mean. I've already recommended this product to many people. And actually I rented one from the library first to try it out. I had also rented several other types from the library that involved computer work or reading or work books and didn't want any of that and the Pimmsleur was the only one I found that didn't require any of that.

Pimsleur Spanish language instruction tapes

I'm familiar with other Pimsleur language programs including French and German and they are excellent.

This was an opportunity to purchase a brand new complete language program including Spanish I, II and III at a substantial discount.

In some ways I prefer the tapes, like this particular program, over the CDs because they are easier to pause, rewind and listen to a segment that you would like to briefly repeat without starting from the beginning.
