my journey.

I love Pimsleur.
It has immediate usefulness. Basically within 30 minutes you will learn something you can use right away and gives you amazing feeling of achievement. Which is great to boost your morale and help you stick with it.
Every time I hit a new language I always go back to Pimsleur.
Unfortunately it doesn't take you all the way, you won't master a language with P but it's a great introduction to the language of your choice.

The one free lesson is also really great since it really gives you a nice feel of how the language sounds - amazing if you never heard the language and you're still figuring out whether or not you actually wanna study it.

Of course there are other great courses, and if you are serious about studying one specific language you will have to move on from P to something else eventually but for starters it will always be my #1.

Hang in there!
Richard

Welcome to the forums, Richard. We have mostly moved to the new ones: forum.language-learners.org but some people still frequent these quite diligently.

I like Pimsleur and Michel Thomas, because you can just listen them while you walk or do the dishes. I also think that for me the audio works better than reading.

They have some similarities, both build up the language from bottom to top (where as in the traditional method you are taught sentences which you should be analyzed; at least that's how it was in my school). Pimsleur is a bit more repetitive and doesn't explain things like Michel Thomas, but you get lot's of basic vocabulary. Both of them give a good kick start, if you are an absolute beginner.

About the others: I didn't like Rosetta Stone, the method just seems outdated and doesn't motivate me. Colloquial and Assimil series has lot's of good basic stuff.

Just a reminder that the majority of
members have moved to www.forum.language-
learners.org after software problems here. You are
welcome to post here or there or on both but note
that you need to register on the new site (ie your
HTLAL name and password won't work there). Don't
worry - sign up is much simpler over on LLOrg!
