  • Horrible Service - Bugs in Upgrade

    By TravelFoodieTex
    Pimsleur notified customers to upgrade their app. I did and I discovered that the upgraded app was not stable on my iPhone 6 Plus. My IOS is current so thats not the problem. In fact the only way I could access the app and use it was by deleting the app and reinstalling it every time I wanted to access the lesson. I notified Pimsleur. IT support acknowledged that I was not the only one with this problem and that they would work on it. After 10 days I called them again and was told that there is no estimated time when it would be repaired. Horrible. ABSOLUTELY cannot recommend this app.
  • Very helpful!

    By Coco2220
    I’ve tried several different apps to learn Italian for an upcoming trip and Pimsleur is by far the best. It really focuses on things you’ll be saying when you visit a country rather than stuff like “the ant is in the sugar” which I was learning in another app. It has also made my daily commute to work go by much faster! I’m looking forward to learning other languages after my Italy trip!
  • Worth it

    By Yamahamike5
    95% is listening and repeating words in conversation. Words are broken down into syllables which help with building the correct accent. Reading lessons afterwords are short and fun to complete. Just finished Spanish 1 and will be continuing.

    I am still on the free trial but loving it so far. Very different from other sites. What I have learned in 30 minutes is actively fluent so now I have confidence that I will be able to speak Spanish fluently when I travel there in 4 months time.
  • Very Effective

    By Sara23fab
    For me, learning a language with Pimsleur is the most effective way of learning to listen and speak. I try to listen intensively for the recommended 30 minutes a day, and review when I am doing things that don’t require much thought. There are many other ways out there to learn, but the fact is that I only have so much time to focus exclusively on language learning.
  • Most effective way to learn a language!

    By RouillieW
    I took Japanese years ago and although I didn’t complete the course, I still remember what I learned, to this day! So now I am undertaking French, with full intent to complete the course this time around, and I find it an easy, comprehensive way to learn a language. You do it the same way you did as a child, you listen, repeat, practice and remember. Plus, there are written exercises which really help to reinforce what you’ve learned, and more. Highly recommended!
  • Beware of subscription policy

    By angrybanana91
    I did not realize that I was paying for this subscription because it did not show up in my Apple subscriptions. Also I never received any notifications from Pimsleur about being charged monthly. When I realized the charges, I couldn’t figure out how to cancel the service - there is no way to do it through the app - must call customer service to cancel. They would not refund me the charges even though I haven’t used the app during that time! This is shady and unfair. Customers deserve to be notified when they are being charged, and cancellation should be easier. Other companies in my experience have offered refunds in this situation, and Pimsleur should do the same here.

  • Pimsleur German

    By Ultra Goat
    Great overall lessons and nicely paced. Because some of the lessons include asking directions to the Post Office and asking to borrow the phone, both of which are no longer necessary really, I gave 4 stars. Otherwise, I would have rated Pimsleur 5 stars.
  • Great App so Far

    By C LaBelle
    So far, really like the app and the way it structures teaching Spanish. I see reviews where people have lost all progress so I hope that bug has been fixed.
