  • Good content but terrible app / user interface

    I’ve always liked Pimsleur’s approach to learning a new language, but by pairing Pimsleur’s content with such a brainless UI / app design is such an insult to Dr. Pimsleur. The app feels like it is designed by a student who didn’t give any thoughts on user experience. There are “icons” that doesn’t give visual clues on what it does not it responds to you. There are UI elements that offers no interactions. And you can’t even jump from unit 1 to unit 30 without sweeping 29 times. Such a horrible design with terrible app flow.

    I LOVE Pimsleur! Learning a new language can be overwhelming and challenging but with the Pimsleur software I know I will be fluent in my new language in no time! The way the lessons are setup it makes understanding everything so easy! The repetitiveness of the phrases is so helping. I am even learning the correct way to address different types of people in the Japanese culture. I’m not just learning a language with Pimsleur, I’m learning the culture too. I highly recommend this product to ANYONE wanting to learn a new language. The lessons are fun and engaging. I am really excited to learn more and more!
  • Great learning for speaking

    I have just completed the beginner and intermediate courses of Pimsleur Hebrew. These Hebrew lessons are excellent for learning to converse in Hebrew; converse in actual conversation. The native speakers do not slow down or “dumb down” the language. I am thoroughly enjoying this app. However.......I think these lesson (beginner and intermediate) are way too difficult for absolute beginners. I took about 7 months of Rosetta Stone before starting this program. Rosetta Stone teaches way more vocabulary but lacks in learning to converse like a native speaker. Pimsleur teaches way more survival skills, sentence structure and conversation but lacks in a lot of vocabulary. However i have just completed the beginner and intermediate courses, and have not started on the advance course yet. So that vocabulary may still come in the advanced section. All in all a great program if you already have some Hebrew background.

    Love the language software, dislike the apps compatibility with iPhone XR. Touch is unresponsive in the upper corners
  • BY FAR THE BEST.

    I am not the kind of guy who just loves a good, juicy, book on grammar. (I’d rather go to the dentist.) I’m extremely active, travel a lot, and I communicate for a living. I go to Central America a lot and NO ONE you’re going to encounter in daily life is an expert in Spanish grammar in Central America, as is the case with English in the USA. I have had the luxury of having access to R. Stone and the Bbl app. Nope. Pimsleur? YEP. It’s different. It’s way better. It’s not a pain. I don’t get annoyed. I learn EXTREMELY QUICKLY. And it’s almost weird; I live in an area of Los Angeles where there are tons of Spanish speakers and I find myself walking around listening in on other’s conversations without even meaning to. It’s pretty fascinating. (Apparently… I am considered attractive to some in the Latin American culture… who knew... :-) I no longer need the basic stuff but you know, who wants to only know how to order a beer and where the bathrooms are in conversation? It’s nice to talk about the things that people really care about, so I’m refreshing now and will go as advanced as the course goes. I’ve had the Pimsleur audio course for years, and I have now abandoned everything else except for the Pimsleur app. It. Is. Different. Better. Do iiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!!!!
