    "Good way to learn the language"
    Where does Romanian Phase 1, Unit 01-05 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I liked all of the Pimsleur audiobooks I have listened to so far. Other language learning audiobooks don't measure up.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There really weren't any characters. You went from being a man talking to a woman to a woman talking to a man and back to being a man again quite often. It was good for practice and learning, but no storyline, so some people might get bored.


    Which character – as performed by the narrator – was your favorite?

    As before, there weren't any real characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book does not lend itself to making a film.


    Any additional comments?

    Unlike many other language learning programs, it lets you practice putting the words in context from the beginning. This makes it easier to learn.

    "A great way to start learning Romanian"

    This is a good introduction to conversational Romanian and I felt pleased with my progress. I look forward to downloading the next set of units.

    The 'Pimsleur method' seems to be pseudoscientific nonsense, but once the narrator stops droning on about it and gets on with going through some basic conversations it's a fairly good course. It is well paced, covering useful beginners vocabulary and teaches pronunciation effectively. As a purely audio limited introductory course I would recommend it.

    But, and it is a big but, the Pimsleur method is not a fan of any kind of text accompaniment, which seems strange to me. Babies learn language without it, but once we reach adulthood and invest a lot of the intervening time in developing the neural pathways to read and write, it's a little daft to ignore that avenue for learning. Personally I find it helpful to learn the written part of a language to aid with remembering and pronouncing words, so I had to invest some time trawling the internet for the words I was learning to say.

    The language used tends to be rather formal, for example 'ce mai facet' for how are you, rather than the 'ce faci' Romanians abbreviate to in normal speech, though this is not necessarily a bad thing in a new language. Better formal than rude.

    In summary a good introductory course to get you straight in to speaking words, suitable for tourists but probably not the best approach if you want a base for mastering the language - that really does require literacy and some basic skipped steps like the phonetic sounds.
