5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Way to Start Learning a New Language 4 Mar 2010
By Just Wondering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am learning Norwegian because I will be moving to Norway in the future. I have every introductory self-study audio and/or book-based course available for Norwegian (including some only available from Norway). Pimsleur is by far the best way I have found to start learning a new language. I was amazed at how fast I progressed in learning a basic vocabulary. Most importantly, Pimsleur is unquestionably the best self-study method of mastering pronounciation. Expensive, yes. Indispensable, yes. Supplement the course with a good grammar text (like Janus') and you will get a fun, fast start to learning the basics of speaking and understanding the world's most important language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quickest way to learn 10 May 2009
By Jose Fernando Alvarez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I took 3 months of classroom lessons in Norwegian, and I did not learn half as much as I have learned from these CDs. My main objection to classroom lessons is that, most of the time, you will be listening to your classmates speaking in a language they do not master. I believe this is a huge waste of time.

The Pimsleur method is incredibly effective. This is the closest you will get to a private tutor, without paying for a private tutor. I actually look forward to my 30 minute lesson every day. After only a few weeks, I find myself initiating simple conversations in Norwegian.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy way to learn Norwegian. 16 Nov 2009
By Johnny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok, Norwegian is an easy language to learn especially when you already speak English, right?

WRONG!! The sounds and intonation of this particular and lovely language requires the most of your attention. Repeating several times after the lecturer is fundamental if you want to sound natural. I found this course very helpful because the words, phrases and conversations are pronounced by different speakers (males and females) in different circumstances and times. The narrator emphasizes paying attention to the most demanding parts of the sentences. If you find some part hard to follow, the course itself takes you to the point "just like magic" helping you master the hearing and speaking skills progressively and in a natural way. I previously studied other courses and I can tell you that this time the grammatical structures finally made sense WITHOUT STUDYING GRAMATICS! As other costumer said, "...this is the closest you will get to a private tutor..." and I will add: You don't have to pay extra if you want to take an extra class.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good start! 10 Feb 2013
By Matthew J. Solin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This method is really great. I got it from my Norwegian tutor as something to practice with while I was driving, in addition to the books that I was already using. I quickly found that it was actually helping me progress more than the books were, and I ditched them for the time being. The gist is this: I'm about halfway through, and I can have a basic conversation in Norwegian, and understand a little bit of what they're saying. Nothing more, nothing less.

As other people are saying, the idea here is that they teach you a few words, and then ASK YOU (rather than just having you repeat) how to say phrases using the words you learned. As time goes on, they incorporate more and more words, and you begin to respond in conversation. Eventually, the directions start being said in Norwegian, and it's pretty solid immersion. Like the book says, if I am not able to answer the prompts in the time allotted (which gets shorter), then I repeat the whole lesson the next day. I also like to look up the words after the lesson, it helps me to remember if I know what they look like and are spelled like.

PROS:
-You begin speaking quickly
-The things you learn, you retain well
-It is cut into manageable chunks

CONS:
-You don't learn how to spell or read the words you learn
-Repeating lessons (which I recommend) can take a lot of time
-Of course, as others have said, there is nothing beyond this. But that is a testament to how great these CDs are.

To sum up, this is a great set. It quickly introduces you to many of the basics, and gets you going. If you are looking to speak and be spoken to, this is a must-have and a good investment of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's Phase 2? 11 Nov 2011
By Pinky ponk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a great start to learning Norwegian, but I must agree with the other reviewers who complain that there is no Phases 2 or 3. There are significant gaps in vocabulary and some of the choice of conversations seems a little bizarre for beginners (why teach us how to say "my daughter is grown up" before "I would like a train ticket" etc?) I contacted Pimsleur and they said they have no plans for a Phase 2 as they don't think there is the demand. Great pity.
