Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes - with Pimsleur it's that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. Polish Phase 1, Units 21-25 build on material taught in prior units. 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. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Polish.

"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 was disappointed that this book doesn't warn you that it has come to an end. It tells you to continue with unit 26 tomorrow. However, there is no unit 26. When you buy it, it is just a reading guide, which is supposed to have an accompanying booklet (not provided). I returned it, hence I've put my review here, not against units 26-30.
It does not feel like a complete course. There is a sense that you have been left hanging in the middle of a course. As if they intended to make more, but then never got around to it.
Yes. It's slow and boring, but it does the job.
The Pimsleur course is great for teaching you a few basic phrases with good pronunciation, but considering the financial investment, it doesn't give you a broad or deep enough understanding of the language to be of practical use. It is very frustrating that it doesn't continue to Phase 2 and 3.
