This language method works very well for me.

Within ten days of receiving this product I decided not to purchase the program and called to cancel and close out the account they created.

My bet - they know that you wouldn't spend that much money for their product without some kind of trick.

I love this system. I first encountered it as a "Quick and Easy" promotion from Pimsleur and ended up receiving the full Gold version of Spanish I, unsolicited. That wasn't very nice, or was it? I ended up being able to use it for free for 3 months. I could have completed the whole course given enough time but I didn't have the time and so I was about to return it. I started to feel disappointed because I wasn't learning fast enough. Nor was I learning enough Spanish, as some have said, to speak to a 4 year old. Then I had a chat with a friend from Chile. She encouraged me to go on with it because although I was learning very formal Spanish and although there are hundreds of odd dialects I'll encounter, learning the "formal" basics will give me a very sound/firm foundation and I will pick up various dialects more easily from that foundation. I was excited and ended up purchasing the Spanish I from them and adding Spanish II from Amazon. I will tell you it is a terrific system. It is one that will have you sounding Spanish as well as understanding and speaking it. BIG WARNING however, if like me you think you're going to have a grand and fluent conversation with a 4 year by the end of Spanish I you are going to discourage yourself. You will, however, be able to easily understand and speak enough in a travel situation. Just focus on learning what is here and plan to continue until you find your Spanish voice which is bound to show up depending on the degree of motivation you truly have. It's a good system. One more thing...I have noticed that when I have finished a lesson I'll continue to go over it again and again, thus the time issue. The reason I choose to do this is because I want to really hear the sutle difference in some of the grammar structures. Just a little extra aside.

After visiting their web site and listening to the entire video presentation, where the woman talks about how the price is $10, not $20 or even $30, I was skeptical. Sure enough, down at the bottom of the order page is the following text:

"One month after you receive your Quick & Simple you'll begin receiving 30 day trial copies of advanced Pimsleur courses in the language you selected. Each course is yours to try for 30 days. You'll receive a new course once every 60 days. For each course you keep we'll bill you in four monthly payments of $64. Remember, there's never an immediate obligation to buy any course because of the 30-day trial period provided with each shipment. And you may cancel future shipments at any time by calling 1-877-802-5283."

So for each course you decide to keep, its $64 x 4 = $256.

Why don't they just say that in the first place?

They charge you for higher levels you don't necessarily BUY!!
I thought of buying this product and used internet to know more about it. Some where in Amazon I saw a recurring credit being charged to the Customers without their consent. This cannot be possible unless mentioned on the terms. So here are they::

""""Internet Order, LLC reserves the right to ship new levels of the Pimsleur language course series to customers who previously enrolled in the Rapid Learning Program as they become available from the publisher. Customer shall be considered eligible for up to two years after their initial enrollment in the Rapid Learning Program."""

So when you buy a low level course for which they have higher levels(OBVIOUSLY), they charge you!! And By clicking Pay once, you agree to pay for 2 years..Smoking Hot Fraud!!
[...]

Happy to stop people from getting cheated!!

I orderd a Pimsleur Quick and Simple Spanish CD that was a sample of their program. Within ten days of receiving this product I decided not to purchase the program and called to cancel and close out the account they created. I spoke to Brad (he still works there)who confirmed he closed this account and our business was concluded.

To my dismay, I received a letter stating I owed them $256.00. I contacted customer service to explain I closed out my account and never received anything from their company nor was my credit card charged $256.00 in the last 8 months. Ironically, the customer service lady confirmed my account was indeed closed out, and their employee Brad confirmed my story in their computer notes. I asked why the company is still trying to collect $256.00 from me.

She stated they have a shipping record of product "on route" to my address and that it "should have been delivered" sometime in February 2013 therefore I owe $256.00. Pimsleur is in need of re-evaluating how they do business. They do not have a record of a signature or a receipt to verify their product was delivered to my home, or a credit card charge to show I placed this order with their company.

She tried to bully me to pay the $256.00 and when that did not work she reiterated they have a shipping order indicating their product is "on route" to my address. Keep in mind this order "on route" is going on eights as of August 5, 2013. An order I never placed, never wanted and never received. I wished her good luck and concluded our conversation.

I would like to caution others about how this company not only deals with products not ordered by customers and non-deliveries, but how they automatically place orders without the customer's knowledge or authorization. I am not the only customer this has happened to; In fact, other reviews make similar claims too.
