I have just completed the first sixty lessons (Spanish I - 30 lessons, Spanish II - 30 lessons) of this 90 lesson course and tonight placed my order for the last 30 lessons (Spanish III).
This course follows the teaching method of the late Dr. Paul Pimsleur and is, without a doubt, the most effective method I have found for learning a new language. Having done some preliminary reading on Dr. Pimsleur before ordering the first course, I was struck by the wisdom of his "graduated interval recall" method.
What's interesting is that, as you go through the taped lessons, you are actually learning Spanish (or Japanese, German, Italian, etc.) in much the same way you learned your native language. Think about it! We all learned to speak our native language YEARS before we ever learned to write. We learned by listening, watching, and emulating. The advantage you have with these tapes is that, understanding English, you can now be clearly TOLD what each word means, rather than having to learn by watching and associating like we did as small children. Simply by listening, the tapes feed and TEST you on an ever increasing list of phrases, gradually increasing the length of time between testing until, finally, you LEARN. At the same time, you are forced to recombine the words you learn into NEW phrases, further testing and reinforcing your new knowledge. Additionally, as you progress through the tapes, the native speakers gradually increase their speed. Not surprisingly, your ability to understand increases with it!
It is already amazing how far I have come. I am now comfortably (if somewhat haltingly) speaking in present, past, AND future tenses, with a large set of commonly used verbs, nouns and adjectives.

This is the first Pimsleur product I've purchased, and I'm very impressed with its quality. The sound quality of the CD version is very high, and the method is very effective for teaching the kind of "everyday" vocabulary a person would need to function at a basic level with Spanish-speaking people. It's very useful for learning how to speak (and understand) Spanish at a realistic speed (ie the speed at which native speakers speak) and with a good accent.
I skipped to Spanish II because I had already completed a 2 week immersion course, 2 months of twice-weekly private lessons and self-study (and I find learning grammar easy) - I'm at the level where I've just started to work with the subjunctive tenses. Spanish II is at a more basic level (present tense, some past tense and some future tense), but it is very helpful nonetheless for enabling me to consolidate what I've studied (especially for the practice with pronouns, accent, speaking speed etc).

However, I have some regrets that I didn't take the plunge and start with Level III because I found the first 10 lessons very easy. I haven't had to repeat a lesson yet, and I'm on lesson 15. I was frustrated that I couldn't get any information (from the publisher or the web) on the course syllabus, or even a general explanation of what is covered in each level. I understand that the premise of the system is that you should start at Level 1 and work your way up, and this is a good idea for many people. However, there are some unusual cases where people can start at a higher level - and there should be some information to assist those people in deciding which course to purchase. After all, it's a significant financial investment.

Verified Purchase
I have tried other tapes (10 years ago, anyway) and found that they all required books, or live lessons, or were just rote phrases. But this is a GREAT way of learning a language. You can convince yourself of this by looking at the high resale price of used copies on eBay.
Anyway, all you do is listen and speak. Each tape is a half an hour. They are consistently good and easy to progress. Occasionally, they throw in a stinker tape (Lesson 24) but usually, they're really good about challenging you without making it impossible.
I'd recommend listening to them at least twice. I personally listen to each side of each tape a total of 3 times.
If you have a 30 minute commute, they are perfect. I listen to them on the way to work every day and have progressed to midway through level 3. I'm obviously not fluent in Spanish, but at least now I can understand some of Univision (as long as they're showing chiquitas in bikinis).
