I’m on Lesson 3 right now. And it’s as fantastic as WaniKani! Now I’m getting more and more comfortable talking Japanese and understanding basic dialogues. And I’ve just started!
I’m pausing the audio and writing down all the new phrases. This helps me understand it deeper.
Pimsleur has built in SRS which is fantastic for retaining information. My speaking progress without it was snail pace if not slower. Now I look forward to a new lesson every day. Hope, the trend continues
Basically, I spend arround 50 minutes on a lesson a day.
It has 5 levels, 30 lesson’s in each level. So it’s arround 150 days total.
It’s suggested you complete one lesson a day. Which means, you speak every day!
And the language is real life. Not some wierd textbook words, you’ll probably never use.
I love it!
The reason I decided to write this post is because I feel like it’s not been discussed much. And for me it worked wonders!
The only downside is price. It’s price it’s super high unfortunately.
But there are ways arround it, like local library, iOS app subscription, etc…
Have you tried Pimsleur?
