"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
The course is well thought out. I was able to use some of the phrases in China when meeting people and riding in taxis. The language is hard for me and I had to listen to most of the lessons more than once, but the pimsleur method is very good.
"I love Pimsleur!"
One of my most memorable moments, personally, was when I found myself translating a particularly challenging sentence construction in English; and I was able to do it effortlessly. What a great feeling. Thanks, Pimsleur.
I never thought learning a new language could be so easy! Even something as seemingly complicated as Mandarin Chinese.
I'm now a firm believer of the Pimsleur system; it really works!
Simply repeat what you hear (aloud!) and answer the questions and before you know it you're able to carry on small conversations!
I am always looking forward to the next time I and pop in this book and learn more Chinese!
"Overall a good audio book"
I like the style and method they use to teach Chinese and I'm happy with my progress. however, I feel like the speed at which it goes on is very slow. I have a feeling it's gonna take me a very long time before I can actually have a conversation in Mandarin.
