Pimsleur Approach Reviews

About Pimsleur Approach

The Pimsleur Approach (PimsleurApproach.com) is a foreign language course that promises to teach you the basics of your chosen language within 10 days using proven methods created by Dr. Paul Pimsleur and used by the FBI.

When you order the Quick & Simple program, you will receive 4 audio CDs with 8 lessons, each 30 minutes in length, and you are scheduled to listen to only one lesson per day.

The entire program is 100% audio based so it can be listened to in the car, the home, or downloaded and played on an MP3 player. The Quick & Simple program is currently priced at $10.00, with free Shipping & Handling.

What is “The Pimsleur Approach”?

The Pimsleur Approach to learning a foreign language is to teach adults a language the same way babies learn language – orally. According to them, learning language begins with learning sounds and pronunciations, not with grammar rules or vocab lessons.

The Pimsleur Approach works on the idea that you should absorb grammar rules through understanding how conversation works orally, just like you did when you were learning your first language.

The website says that while there are over 1 million words and phrase in the English language, there are only 2500 that we use consistently and that we need in order to communicate with the average American.

The Pimsleur Approach identifies these same language building blocks for foreign languages and only concentrates on teaching you those, so that you can quickly be conversational in your chosen language.

The Cost

The Quick & Simple program does cost $10.00 and comes with a 30 day trial, where you can receive a refund if you return the program in excellent condition. However, you are automatically enrolled to get subsequent programs sent to you.

These subsequent programs, if not returned with 30 days, will cost you 4 payments of $64, or $256, and depending on the language you have chosen, you can receive up to 4 additional shipments.

With each additional shipment, you have 30 days to return those and cancel the charges. You can also call 1-877-802-5283 to cancel future shipments in advance at any time.

They took my money over a month ago and I have yet to receive anything. Something has gone wrong with their system and they also can't refund my money? Stunning. I do not understand how this company has stayed in business.

This is a scam! Do not buy!
There is a hidden agenda to force you to buy additional "courses."
I am reporting this to the Better Business Bureau.
They are a bad comp-any that essentially is stealing my money.

Pimsleur Approach Marketing is a Deceptive aka SCAM

Reviewed By Eric Haffner on January 1, 2015

I was interested by the Pimsleur advertising as it appeared to be much less expensive than the Rosetta Stone programs ... WRONG!
I was unaware that I was enrolling in a subscription at $192 a whack.
I did successfully stop the shipments and return the last CD, nut I can not get a RMA for the next to the last CD, which I do not want. Although not exactly a 'bait and switch' scheme, it nearly is.
It works, but I would buy the Rosetta Stone program, which is less expensive.

Read the small print. They make it appear you are getting a cheap disc but you are really signing up for an overpriced course. Very deceptive.

My daughter ordered the product and we wanted to return it , It become really difficult to get an RMA. First you cannot get an RMA number online which is silly. The company forces you to speak with a representative before they provide you with anRMA. The rep of course uses high pressure tactics to try and get you to keep the product. I had to ask for the RMA three time each time the customer sales person countered my request. I finally cussed him out with the thought that since the call is being recorded there recording software would flag it and someone else would review the call and realize I don't like there sales methodology. Or if not the folks of a higher management level will know I think they SUCK for using high pressure sales! -that's my 2 cents.
