Just completed Pimsleur Spanish Level 5, what now
Is Pimsleur worth looking at, just for extra audio to practice speaking and listening to? Just curious.
I think it is. I'm on level 4. During level 1 and part of level 2 I would listen and repeat, just like they said to do. But I started to hate the repetitiveness of the program and got super frustrated with myself if I couldn't remember how to say something they told me to say, so I took a break and thankfully found LingQ. When I went back to Pimsleur, I used it more as a listening tool. I am far from conversational from using Pimsleur but I've definitely learned words and numerous phrases. I listen while I'm driving or walking the dogs. Since I'm not always 100% present with it I usually listen to a lesson 3 or so times.
If you are not sure where to start, then start at lower level. If you find it too easy, you can move to the next level and so on. There is no harm in starting at an easier level as our system is always learning more about you and your level.
