  • Great app to learn a new language

    By Ken123subr
    Great app
  • Poorly Engineered, Does not Work

    By juan el conquistador
    Does not play. Does not download. 24 hours later, the "hourglass" symbols are still turning. Every other app works fine. No timeout, no error message, just the symbol for "please wait." There are other apps that provide access to the Pimsleur content which will not waste your day or interrupt your learning with this. It's as if they have not tested the app in real world network scenarios (I'm in rural areas outside the US with one or two bars) and they have turned a blind eye to the failure data that would be accumulating on their servers, were they to bother to look for it. At this price it's a huge rip off and don't count on using it while visiting any of the locales you might want to visit with your language skills. You can buy the exact same content in audiobook form and get an exquisitely engineered experience by comparison.
  • Best way to learn to speak language in a reasonable time.

    By Alabama doc
    I have used many language, learning sources over the years. I still do use some other sources, but for learning to listen and speak a language with proper accent I have not found anything better. Access to other languages for the same price also encourages you to expand your horizons. I have been able to become functional in French and Italian, and become more fluent in Spanish using this service.
  • Love it

    It really works and it’s great you you drive or travel a lot and can’t use your hands.
  • Pimsleur Language App is Smart and Effective

    By RMF222
    I am a humanities professor and have studied several languages. 15 years ago I tried to learn Japanese in a conventional way attending class, doing homework from numerous books and listening to cassette tapes. Things progressed slowly but because I did not visit the country when I intended to, I lost most of that early capacity. I’m planning a trip for next year and decided to restart using this app. It is exceptional because it utilizes multiple approaches, recording my attempts to speak, and offering feedback, game oriented flash cards for building vocabulary, and nice historical notes on culture. Easy to use while I’m driving or airport waiting or listening to a boring lecture.. The monthly subscription also allows me to switch to other languages I may need to refresh. I’ve used Rosetta Stone and numerous other products but this one is clearly superior.
  • French

    By 4squarestar
    I have used the app for Portuguese and now French. I am very impressed with the product.
  • Would have given a 5 if….

    By Xfeahlorch5828
    …it didn’t force me to take this survey, multiple times. The window pops up and there’s no way of x-ing out of it until you do it. Even though I’ve done it before!
  • Love it!

    By pimsleur reciewer
    I love the new update Pimsleur added! All of it is great if you want to learn grammar, good pronunciation and actually remember the things you’re taught.
  • Love it
