Latin American Spanish

Not right for me as I want to learn Spanish from Spain, not Latin America. It was not very clear that this was Latin american only when I bought the audio book.

Beware: bad digital audio quality

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better audio quality. The CDs are of superior quality compared to this.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

No. The quality is probably the same (noticeably worse than CD quality).

Any additional comments?

1. AUDIO QUALITY
For language learners it is very important to hear the exact pronunciation, but the audio is noticeably distorted due to poor audio encoding. Compared to the CD releases, this is of inferior quality and I would advise you not to buy it. I've calculated the bitrate and it 65 kbps or even lower, which is far too low. I wouldn't settle for anything under 96 kbps.

2. LESSONS NOT SEPARATED
All of the lessons are merged into one big file and when you start the lesson again, you need to rewind to find the end of the previous one. There are no such problems with the CD releases.

Excellent

Narration: crystal clear and resonant.

Content: entire series is excellent. Material accessible, well organized, intelligently paced, and approach is spot on.

Best for learning a language

The Pimsleur method encourages listening, pronunciation, and repetition to aid comprehension. I actually was able to learn some Spanish! Other programs moved too quickly or concentrated on random grammar. This method teaches the way people learn to speak as children. Listening and repeating. I highly recommend this method.
