Summary

The Pimsleur® Method: the easiest, fastest way to learn a new language. Completely portable, easily downloadable, and lots of fun. You’ll be speaking and understanding in no time flat! Each lesson of Castilian Spanish Phase 1, Units 1-5 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 Castilian Spanish. Pimsleur’s “Castilian Spanish” teaches the dialect that is the official language of Spain as spoken by the majority of Spanish-speakers in Spain.

Great as a refresher

I learned Castillian Spanish for eight years and then didn't touch it for twenty years. It's a totally perishable skill. This was a great way to start coming back to it. The exercises are very effective and it helps to hear and mimic the accent to get it down. I still repeat some of the lessons just because I'm a perfectionist but you do you. Pimsleur is working for me.
