    I like the style okay but I paid for a subscription and I can’t access anything. Not really worth it.
  • Sub Par Experience

    Just a fair warning to anyone looking at purchasing this app to learn French. The lessons were easy to follow and seemed to be working. I felt confident in my skills until I actually got to Paris and couldn’t understand much of anything that was being said. Not enough instruction on basics like ordering food and general conversation. I think the language on the app was probably too formal. I also have been charged 3 times since cancelling my subscription and they will not refund the 3 months of subscription. I sent a message on the app to cancel my subscription, they sent a message with a link with instructions to cancel through the settings on my phone, I followed their directions and was still charged again. When I saw my account was charged again today, I called them and they refused to refund even the charge that was made just hours ago. This is not good customer service. Very disappointed.
  • Best introductory app on the market!

    Nothing beats this app for learning how to speak a new language. Only thing that would help this is by having a read-along to assist. But I can understand why that isn’t included. Perfect!

    I just started Pimsleur this week to learn French and I have tried a number of apps and videos and this Pimsleur by far, is superior in teaching the spoken language. If you want to learn vocabulary, Duolingo is amazing for explain about individual words, I found Duolingo to be fantastic, if you want to SPEAK the language of your chose choice, Pimsleur ranks #1 for me.
  • Better than the rest for a personal reason

    So from my experience, most language apps want to teach you grammar and spelling first before speech. Which is fine if you learn that way, but I learn my talking, and repetition. What they do is teach you full sentences, piece by piece, so that you pick up a conversation fast. Out of all the apps and books I’ve been studying, I’m picking up korean way fast than I was, not just learning words, but how to communicate. I’m all for it and plan to continue the dozens and dozens of chapters they have.
  • Double charge you and never fix it

    They double charged me for a month subscription. When I emailed to get it fixed they told me to just deal with it. Don’t download this app unless you love being overcharged for something!!!

    This is my first foray into learning a languages on my own. I started with Duolingo but must say that Duolingo alone wasn’t good for me because I need the auditory repetition offered by Pimsleur. I have greatly improved with Pimsleur but am also glad I do Duolingo because I need to understand why I am saying something. Sometimes the Pimsleur voices pronounce things so fast I have to look up the translation on my own to understand if they used a certain word or a word ending. That said, this is an wonderful app and I highly recommend it!
  • So far so good

    Just finished lesson 4 and starting to feel comfortable with some very basics. Lots of repetition, which is very good for helping it sink in. I also really enjoy the lessons.
