I would recommend using with other apps in conjunction, just to keep sharp.
I own Rosetta Stone and Mondo and Duo. This is the best for retention.
It’s very easy to pick up and comprehend.
The app works as it should. I was speaking in Portuguese with common sentence phrases after the first lesson! But, as you advance in the chapters the lessons get harder, as they should. But without formal instruction I found it harder to continue learning at Pimsleur’s pace. In fact, at the end of chapter 4 I decided to stop Pimsleur to purse another form of learning. I will add that the app has plenty of resources, flash cards in English and Portuguese and some other games. I did enjoy the app and it did advance my speaking ability in the time I used it. I would highly recommend Pimsleur for beginners and even intermediate speakers.
I’ve just completed Eastern Arabic 3...which means 90 lessons, and I’ve enjoyed and appreciated it so much I’m wishing there were an Eastern Arabic 4! It is a great program. I love the way the repeats are timed so that a person actually assimilates the information over time. I love it that a person begins speaking it right away in the first lesson. I would highly recommend the program. I opted for the subscription route and finished all three levels in three months( which included the first week for free). It is a great deal of instruction for your money.
I am learning so much and my accent is getting better every day. Turned my long commuting hours to and from work into a foreign language classroom. I’ve tried many other apps. This is by far the best.
Wow! I am very impressed. I speak english as as a second language, so I know quite a bit about learning a language, I very much recommend this app to anyone who wants to keep a foreign language on their brain and not let it get wasted away. I took german (language I’m learning now) for 2 years in college a while back, this app is helping me improve what I thought I had completely forgotten. It’s very easy audible learning I love it!!! Thank you for creating such great product!
This app has improved my speaking and listening a lot which had been outpaced by my knowledge of French with reading and writing via other programs.
This app is amazing!
It's a great resource and i find it to be worth the small monthly expense. It has helped me communicate with patients and in everyday life so much better.
