Excellent Learning Program

I will have to say that I was very skeptical about this program at first, but Pimsleur has definitely converted me! By unit 17 of phase 2, I was able to converse with a couple from Germany. Mind you, I do not have a
FULL vocabulary, but the couple said that my pronunciation was like that of a native speaker. Granted, I do spend more time than the program recommends per day and have had to repeat some units, but to be able to be understood by a non-English speaker after only roughly six months TOTAL (including this program and others) is impressive. Of these programs, I have used the Pimsleur program for about four of these months. I can speak better German than I can Spanish, of which I had four years of formal study.

Not that great.

This program provides a few phrases and examples to commit to memory. If you want to memorize a few odd words and one or two phrases, this will do fine. There is no explanation of what you are saying, sentence, structure, ect. If you genuinely want ro learn the German language, so as to speak it on your own and not regurgitate cookie cutter sentences I would suggest another course.

Introduction to the German Language

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This audiobook works great as a family foreign language project. We listen to it for a half hour a day.

What did you like best about this story?

It is realistic and simple and goes back to lesson 1.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

He sounds like he is German and is pretty clear.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. We just did it a little at a time.

Better than Rosetta Stone

WAY better than Rosetta Stone. AND I can put on my bluetooth headphones and walk around the house while I listen/practice/learn!

Worth the money

In five lessons I have certainly learned more than I would learn in several lectures in college for a fraction of the cost.

I'm glad it wasn't my first German lesson

I got the Pimsler course after listening to Paul Noble's Learn German all the way through. The Pimsler course is already expanding my vocabulary within the first few lessons. However, I'm glad I did Paul Noble's book first, otherwise I would be lost with the Pimsler course.

Pimsler starts with one of the trickiest words in German - "excuse me" or "entshuldigen sie," which is a mouthful and doesn't sound like English. In comparison, Paul Noble's book starts with words that sound similar to English, like "I can camp" or "ich kann campen."

The Pimsler course also presents everything in a quick conversational tone, and rarely slows down to exaggerate pronunciation. I suppose that helps prepare listeners for a fluent German conversation, but it leaves beginners in the dust.

As with both books, Pimsler never tells you how to spell anything! I constantly have to go to Google Translate to learn the spelling. "Verstehen" sounds like it has an F at the beginning, and "Wol" sounds like "vol" to the English speaker. It's difficult to read German even after learning how to speak German without knowing the spelling.

The speakers are great. Sometimes the pronunciation between the two speakers varies a little ("nicht" for example) but I think that exposes listeners to natural variations between dialects.

Quick way to learn basic spoken German

I did have three years of German in college but promptly forgot it upon graduation. With the Pimsleur German phase1 I was able to feel comfortable speaking and understanding basic spoken German again. The program starts with a few basics and builds on them with each subsequent chapter.
I was impressed enough to buy the next two units (06-10, 11-15)

Great refresher after not using my German in almost 20 years. Can listen to in car or while cooking, etc. very easy to follow.

Too short

I love the system, however I think we should get way more modules by credit

Good way to learn spoken German

This program really helped me. It won't teach you written German but is an excellent way to learn how to speak the language.
