What You’ll Learn
In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.
In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.
In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. More directions are given in English, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.
Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what’s going on in the world around you, Pimsleur will help you learn English and expand your horizons and enrich your life.

I have really enjoyed using this its great.
I feel cheated. I was under the impression that this product would be split into its individual units. It is not. The audiobook downloads as two large files. The units are not split apart. This makes the Pimsleur Method of one 30 minute lesson a day very difficult to control. No where in the product description does it state that the units are not split, something that borders on false advertising in my opinion. At the very least, Pimsluer needs to update the product description to state this clearly.
As of right now, I asked for a refund and am looking to exchange this for the Pimsleur Course Manager. I'd suggest the Pimsleur Course Manager as opposed to this audiobook. As it stands, this audiobook is useless as it does not conform to the Pimsluer Method.
