"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

"Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish (or Russian, Italian, and Japanese) while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!" -- New York Daily News

"Designed for the ear and not the eye...the lessons provide PERFECT 30-minute bites of work." -- St Louis Post-Dispatch

"Learn to habla español or parlez français 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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Pimsleur® equals success. Just one 30-minute lesson a day gets you speaking and understanding like no other program.

This course includes Lessons 1-16 from the German Level 1 program - 8 hours of audio-only effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons is included in each lesson. Topics include: greetings, numbers, meals, shopping, telling time, scheduling activities, and asking and giving directions. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak German.

Reading instruction begins in Lesson 10 to provide you with an introduction to reading German. A Reading Booklet PDF must be downloaded.

Pimsleur - by far the best foreigh language teaching method 17 juillet 2006
Par Charlie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I've been trying to learn the German language for 1 1/2 years because my parent company is based in Germany and I speak/correspond with them almost daily. I've tried Hueber, Langenscheidt, PONS and Rosetta Stone courses, but even though I was averaging 2 to 4 hours a day studying the language, I found these courses tedious and never came to the point where I could actually say anything beyond "Guten Tag" on the telephone. After a week using the Pimsleur method, I was able to hold simple conversations with my German co-workers. The best thing about this course is I am able to listen to it on the way to work, while getting dressed for work, sunning at the pool, etc. I am spending far less time studying but I'm learning at a much, much faster pace.

I liked this course so much that I gave away my Rosetta Stone course, which cost a great deal of money, and I purchased the complete Pimsleur method (levels 1, 2, 3 and plus). A couple of my co-workers have borrowed my Pimsleur courses. I am currently mid-way through level 2 and I'm amazed at how quickly my vocabulary and understanding of the German language has increased. I now consider the hundreds (possibly thousands) of dollars I've spent on other language courses a complete waste of money and effort.

If I could give this course 100 stars, I would! In all fairness to the other courses, I have to say I did learn many words, but I could not form sentences correctly. It would take hours to compose a simple e-mail before and I could only do so if I had one of my German dictionaries beside me. Trying to speak to someone in German was impossible for me to do. I would never have believed I could learn so quickly. I am amazed. If you want to learn a foreign language - skip the other courses until after you've tried Pimsleur. I think some of the others are okay, but do the Pimsleur first. You'll understand the others much better. Other methods try to teach grammar first. But when you first learned to talk, you learned to speak it first - then you went to school to learn grammar. Summary: Get this course!

I have taken 'The short course', which is audio CDs only. I am a tainted reviewer of the Plimseur method because I have taken a community college course on Conversational German.

The weaknesses of this method are these:
- acquisition of grammar and vocabulary is slow.
- there's no reading or writing of German.
- there's no advice about how to form the German sounds. (The CD has a barrage of examples, but you are left on your own to figure out how to make the sounds. This is harder than you might think.)
- so much concentration is required during the lesson that I don't think it would be safe to drive or operate machinery while listening to these CDs. If you're looking for a CD for the car, this isn't the course for you.

The stengths of this method are:
- it's good listening practice.
- there's more speaking practice than I got in a classroom setting.
- there's more pronunciation practice than I got in a classroom setting.
- the little material that is covered is constantly reinforced.
- it's a good method if you get flustered by grammar terms such as 'nominative pronoun', 'genitive case', 'declension', and 'indirect object'. The Plimseur method is mercifully free of all that.
- there's no effort outside the half hour daily lesson!
- all you need is an audio CD player.

Some reviewers claim that you don't acquire any grammar, but that's not true. The course introduces German grammar concepts by example. The idea is that you acquired English grammar by example, not by grammar rules; therefore, you should acquire German grammar the same way. It is certainly more natural than memorizing rules, but is also a very slow way to acquire German grammar.

The cast of each lesson are a male German speaker, a female German speaker, and 'the tutor'. The tutor tells you when to listen to the speakers, when to repeat what they say, and sometimes quizzes you! It's uncanny how the CD anticipates stumbling points and tutors the student through them. It's a lot like having a live tutor, except a live tutor could tell you whether you were making the sounds correctly. One nit of the CDs is that I was never sure whether I was making the sounds correctly, and it's a little hard to speak German consonants in the time alloted.

These CDs would be pretty good if you were planning travel to Germany and wanted to learn enough German to get by. These CDs are good for the casual student who has a quiet half hour a day for a lesson (but not while driving). For the serious student of German, the CDs are good practice of speaking skills, and are good for improving your German accent.

I rate the short course 3/5 stars. What's there is very, very good. For full marks it would need more pronunciation coaching, and some reading material.

Good System 10 septembre 2007

My last German language experience was the three years I took in high school back in 1969. The German language has always fascinated me and lately my wife and I have discussed taking a trip to Germany and I looked around until I found this course to help me brush up on the language.

The technique works. I was amazed at how fast what I had learned 38 years ago came back to me. Even had I not remembered any German, the lessons would still have been easy to learn. However, some lessons you will probably have to listen to a couple of times to be sure you master at least 80% of the lesson.

This particular short course is good for one reason and that is to see if you want to learn the German language, never having studied it before. Its an inexpensive way to "get your feet wet". However, if you already know you that want to learn enough to get you past ordering food, asking directions or dealing with vendors, get Level I of the Pimsleur oomprehensive course.

This Conversational German course is the same as the first 16 lessons of the 30-lesson Level I course. I wish I had discovered that before I ordered this shorter course but that's my fault.

If you are ready to learn German, this is the course for you!! 26 juillet 2006
Par Kevin Deal - Publié sur Amazon.com

I took German in high school (30ish years ago) and was taught the way many of us have been taught...the ball, the bed, I am hungry,etc. but this course was a pleasant surprise. Basic conversational words and phrases are repeated and gradually built upon.

If you are sincere about brushing up on or learning German then this is the course for you! However, after doing the Conversational German, which is lessons 1 thru 15, I was hungry for more and bought the German 1 course. German 1 is lessons 1 thru 30+. So if you plan on getting serious, save your money and jump into German 1.

I was actually pleased with the fact that with the purchase of a German verb book, the Pimsleur courses really teach you basic conjugation without boring drills...ich bin, du bist and so forth.

With Pimsleur, you are getting what you pay for. An incrdible product!!

Good buy but could be better 3 juillet 2009

I do like this set very much. It is well made and easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Germany.

I didn't rate it higher however because it so easily could have been a lot better better.

It seems like they have they have a fixed silence time for you to respond to instructions. It feels like they give you maybe 5 seconds to respond before proceeding and talking right over your response. This is fine for disc one or two when your response is supposed to be "Yes" or "No". By disk five or six however it gets kind of crazy. I have trouble saying "Yes, I would like something to eat and drink at your place on Beethoven St. a little later" in English in less than five seconds, let alone in German. If you are using it in a CD player with a Pause button, you can use it and ignore this issue. In my car, without a pause, it was very annoying.

The next issue I guess would be harder to correct but is also confusing and annoying. One benefit to listening instead of reading a new language is you should learn it without a strong American accent. The problem here is the two German speakers pronounce the same words very differently. It is like learning English by listening to a man from Boston talk to a woman from Louisiana. They both are speaking German but as to which pronunciation you should imitate, good luck. Very frustrating at times as the differences are pretty big. I would have been happier if they in the beginning acknowledged this in some way and perhaps offered some advice. Something perhaps like "She is from Vienna, and he is from Berlin so you will notice some differences in their pronunciations" would have been appropriate. Instead the narrator pretended they were identical.
