"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)
I like the method but the story is very annoying and at times absurd. Teaching stuff like "this restaurant is always crowded" and "is it 4,000 rupiah or 29,000 rupiah" make the lesson seem almost pythonesque at times but not in an amusing way.
(Had to give 1 star for the story)
