About the Author
Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called “Graduated Interval Recall.” This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.

Of course, It is very basic, and by design doesn't cover spelling or grammar rules. It is however, good enough to get by for my upcoming mission trip, and to give me confidence that I can still learn a new language.
If you'll be moving there, or doing business, you might want something more advanced. Yes, there are things that could be better (like an MP3 format), or more depth, but for the money I am extremely pleased.
My main complaint is that they actively discourage you from using any written materials, and since I'm primarily a visual learner, that is a bit of a problem. I've started using Google Translate to find out the spelling of some of the phrases, because with the French-influenced rolled Rs and other unfamiliar consonants, I've had some trouble figuring out what sounds they are saying. For example, the word for "now." One of the speakers pronounces is "coon-YAY-ah" and the other pronounces is "cool-YAY-ah." I couldn't figure out whether it was an L or an N until I looked it up, and the word is "kounye a." So I think one of them pronounces the N and the other just flips it, making it sound like there's an L there.
If you're an auditory learner this is a very complete tool. Just be prepared to do some extra work if you are a visual learner like me!
