But I'm not an American...

Early days yet, and I do like the fact that the words and sentences are broken up into syllabus, but seem to have spent the first two hours saying "I am am American, are you an American? You are not an American, you are an American".. Only of use if you are an American, not really for any other English speakers as too American bias

Slowest lessons ever

If I wanted to be learning the same ten words for 45 minutes, I'd put a record on loop and rock back and forth in the corner like a crazy person. We. Get. It. Move on, for bloody sake. The reader can go back if they want to see how to say "I understand Croatian a little" for more than a thousand times in a row. Worst audible credit ever spent.

Moves too quickly

This is the third Pimsleur language I’ve learned (others were Mandarin and German). The program is great and the same information was covered, however, it moved too quickly for me and I had to repeat every lesson.

Vi instead of Ti

“Ti” is not taught. Only “Vi” for “to be”. Its incredibly irritated and absolutely frustrating when I then talk to a Croatian and they say “No, only use “vi” to those older than you and in business, do not use it to me or the mass majority of people you meet.”

It is SO FRUSTRATING. I am trying to learn a new language and this has rendered so much chagrin that I stopped listening altogether and am now in a limbo as to how to learn Croatian if nobody making formal audiobooks is teaching it correctly.

Great for first timers, boring for intermediate.

Very helpful in hearing distinctions in the pronunciation of hrvatski but I wish they could spell the words out every now and then.

Love Pimsleur Courses

Love using Pimsleur while traveling. In five easy lessons you’re able to show respect for the new culture by learning a bit of their language and it also opens more doors for you with the locals. Makes Audible an unbeatable value.
