I like the methods used by Pimsleur but I can't understand why the stories are so poor. I have never head anyone speak like they do in Pimsleur. The s..Show More »entences are bordering on the absurd.
Furthermore, a lot of units 11-15 deal with learning numbers at the expense of learning useful vocabulary and grammar. Learning numbers in a foreign language is trivial and can be done without assistance-ie. Learn 1 then 2 then 3 etc
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 ..Show More »or 29,000 rupiah" make the lesson seem almost pythonesque at times but not in an amusing way.
