has anyone tired?  I was doing side by side reviews of this and rosetta stone and this seems like a winner.

So I was able to find the COMPLETE course at the library online..........able to download and "check out" for 21 days for FREE!  I got Spanish 1a.  Day two!  And it's super easy and I'm surprised at how much I'm learning and RETAINING!

it guarantees 30 minutes for 10 days and you'll be able to converse with the basics.  So we shall see.  I need to learn before my trip to the DR

Hmm I'd been eyeing this. Especially since the Rosetta stone is pricey....I need to brush up on the espanol.

I looked at this and RS awhile back but decided to take classes at the Venezuelan embassy next year instead. 

Good luck and enjoy your trip!

I absolutely LOVE pimsleur approach. I have the Italian version and like you OP, I am surprised how much I retain and understand Shocked

I admit I have never learned and retained a foreign language in school as much as I have from pimsleurs. Not even close.

I want the Spanish, Russian, French, and German ones next Star

Yes. I've been doing the Spanish lesson for a month. It's very easy to retain. I love it.

yes.  I have french (the $10 one and the $300 set) and just purchased Dutch.   I started with the $10 disc and it was so much easier for me than Rosetta Stone.  I had an easier time retaining.  Now....I haven't continued with the French because I got lazy.

I got tricked.  I clicked random email that came to my yahoo account.  Found it interesting and thought that I couldn't go wrong for $10.    So I bought the $10 disc off the website but they had it set up in such a way that you don't notice the fine print.  Basically signing u up for a subscription type service where they send you lessons every month or every other month and automatically debit your account. 
 
 
Something tole me to check some reviews after I bought the $10 disc and it was the same.  Everybody loved the program but got "tricked" with the subscription service.  They said it was work and fightin' and hassling to get your money back.   So I cancelled my debit card and got a new one.   They sent me the whole course but then couldn't charge my debit.
 
*shrugs*  I learned my lesson in reading the fine print but ....i'm not mad that I have these.  This has been the best strictly audio program i've come across so....*shrugs*
 
 
I will say it didn't even occur to me to check my library...This is something that i'd prefer to own tho.
