Descripción del producto
"I tried other language programs with little success...This is the best by far!" -- Pamela A. Mitchell, Pilot, International Society of Women Airline Pilots "Learn to habla espanol or parlez francais before your next trip aboard. The interactive LESSONS CHALLENGE STUDENTS to use new words in conversation instead of memorize them." -- American Way (American Airlines inflight magazine) "Designed for the ear and not the eye...the lessons provide PERFECT 30-minute bites of work." -- St Louis Post-Dispatch "Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish (or Russian, Italian, and Japanese) while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!" -- New York Daily News "EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE...each section within the lessons is short enough to hold our attention, and there is enough repetition to teach even those who consider themselves slow learners...Pimsleur [programs] are extremely thorough and easy to use -- quite lively!" -- Boston Herald "Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." -- AudioFile Magazine

The system I have to add actually works. The curriculum is broken down into half hour lessons that allow you to take the material at your own pace since you can repeat the lessons over again until you feel that you have the material down and are ready to proceed to the next lesson.
The only negatives that I can think of is that if you want to learn to read Japanese these wont work since these are strictly audio CD's (which is no fault of the product) and in some cases the pronunciations have been a bit off. I don't know if that is because of my ear, but when I bounce the materials off of my girlfriend sometimes she has to correct me. However, even after that, when I relisten to the CD's I still hear when I thought I heard before.
There are also some words that she doesn't recognize in at least the lessons that I have taken so far. Again it could be my pronunciation (I haven't had her listen to the actual CD's) or it could be due to word choices typically made by native Japanese speakers versus words taught in a classroom environment that even if uncommon are words that are technically correct but used as building blocks for subsequent lessons.
We will see, but even with it's shortcomings it is a product that I would recommend.
****One additional point that anyone buying this product should be aware of is that the low price on any Pimsleur Level 1 course is a loss leader to get you in the door and get you hooked. Any other level (think 2 -4) costs $100+ each. As a result, if you want to continue with this course of instruction, be prepared to fork out a bit of money going forward. However, as an introductory course these materials are a bargain and potentially one you should take advantage of.
-Lessons feature male and female speakers to give you a range of voice pitch
-Price of $15 for 10 half-hour lessons on 5 CDs delivered to you door is awesome!
-Some repetition and periodic reviews to help you learn and to keep you sharp
-You learn basics to get around, such as "Do you understand English?" and "Good morning, nice weather isn't it."
-5 CDs come with a nice black zippered soft-sided CD holder
-Each 30-minute lesson is an entire track, so you can't use the "scan" feature on your radio, you must rewind (or fast forward) manually, despite clear logical breaks (like learning the reponse to a question you just learned)
-No supporting book or pamphlet of words to visually memorize (I need all the help I can get)
-Lessons are not a full 30 minutes typically... would have appreciated more repetition on several words that get almost none (you can rewind, so minor point I suppose)
-Tip #1: CD recommends that if you master 80% of the material, you can move on to the next lesson. I couldn't disagree more, be nearly 100% to get the most of this (you can do it if I can), rewind if you must
-Tip #2: They say a word and you repeat it, there are a few seconds of delay time for you to respond. Learn to say each word not once in that time, but twice, so that you learn to speak at a reasonable speed. It would be annoying to go up to someone and talk too s-l-o-w-l-y...
-Sample vocabulary you will learn: excuse me, hello, good morning, good day, thank you, thank you very much, I, you, good, bad, weather, so it is (agreement), yes, no, I understand, I don't understand, do you understand?, skilled, unskilled, English, Japanese (language, heritage are different words), American, but, well (like I don't know Japanese very well), and so forth... and that's only a sampling of the first 3 lessons... there are 10 in all.
Bottom line: Excellent introduction, highly recommended especially for ~$15. Note: if you buy Pimsleur I, I believe these are the same five discs that begin that series. With Pimsleur I you'll get more CDs obviously, just note the overlap if you are considering it. If I knew then what I know now, I would bite the bullet and go right for Pimsleur I.
