Might I add Japanese to the list?

Pimsleur.Japanese.I.Complete.30.Unit.ace

Pimsleur.-.Japanese.II.-.All.30.Lessons.+.Course.Text.rar

Pimsleur.Japanese.Iii.Complete.(30.Units).(Silvervice).zip
Pimsleur.Japanese.III.complete.30.unit.REPACK.{JanezSlovenec}.rar

Pimsleur.Japanese.I.II.III.Reading.Booklets.rar

I can verify that the first few courses of Japanese I work. But I haven't tried downloading II and III yet, so don't quote me on those. And you'll probably only need to download one of the 2 versions for III.

Pimsleur Language Collection

Post by Last Ninja » Mon Apr 24, 2006 12:34 pm

If you are planning a trip to France, and you need to actually speak French, get this set. Within about a month, you will have mastered the basics of communication. The French will understand you and you will be able to ask the way to the bathroom.
The course trains you to respond automatically. This is very important. I've found communicating in a foreign language to be stressful, and when confronted with a native speaker, my mind goes blank. Grammar rules fly out the window. With Pimsleur, you learn the grammar but without the drills. But sometimes I felt like Pavlov's dog, responding to stimuli.

Pimsleur Learn French Complete 90 Units With Books.zip  [639.25 Mb]

The Pimsleur programs provide a method of self-practice with an expert teacher and native speakers in lessons specially designed to work with the way the mind naturally acquires language information. The various components of language -- vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar -- are all learned together without rote memorization and drills. Using a unique method of memory recall developed by renowned linguist, Dr. Paul Pimsleur, the programs teach listeners to combine words and phrases to express themselves the way native speakers do. By listening and responding to thirty minute recorded lessons, students easily and effectively achieve spoken proficiency.

Pimsleur - Essential Spanish 1 - (Units 01 to 30) (Full Album) (Speak & Read) (Sh... Audio Book).zip  [115.77 Mb]

The Pimsleur Russian audio program uses a natural mode of interactive communication -- questions and answers; statements and rejoinder; give and take -- beginning with the most-frequently-utilized vocabulary native speakers use in their everyday conversations with each other. These are the most useful words and structures every language learner needs to insure communication. It is like having a personal tutor.

The first 8 lessons of the Comprehensive I course, the Quick & Simple course starts at the beginning level and is a great way to try out the Pimsleur courses and be on your way to learning a new language.

You probably know that Japanese is made difficult because of all the characters. Well, don't worry too much there are some short cuts! One is to just learn the Katakana alphabet. This is the one that is used for writing foreign words and also lots of foods. For example, if you can tell that reads as "me nyu" or reads as "a me ri ka" you can probably figure out they mean "menu" and "America".

Are you tired of not being able to speak a foreign language? Do you ever joke with others about how little you learned after 4 years of language study back in high school? Doesn’t the prospect of spending hours struggling with grammar rules and memorizing vocabulary intimidate you? If all you want is to feel confident while speaking with others in their language...then the revolutionary and radical Pimsleur Approach is for you!

Yeah, how was the experience in your opinion? Did you know any Spanish going in? If so, to what degree? I took 5 years of Spanish in high school -- but when it comes to speaking it I sound like a 2 year old. If these programs do half of what they say, they're amazing.

I knew 0 spanish (other than your amigos and whatever) you do a lesson every day for half an hour and there's 90 lessons.

I did 30 of the lessons and could communicate publicly (e.g. taxis, restaurants etc..) with little effort in Spain.

I know if I do the rest I will be close to fluent, you just need to have the discipline and half hour (without being tired from work etc...) to learn it a day.

I would not recommend trying to do more than 1 lesson a day as it's too much to cram and goes against you.

Basically you repeat what is said and it sticks in your head, don't expect to learn to read & write with these though.
