Conversational Romanian: Learn to Speak and Understand Romanian With Pimsleur Language Programs
Conversational Romanian
Learn to Speak and Understand Romanian With Pimsleur Language Programs
Romanian    Compact Disc      ISBN: 074356622x
This Conversational program contains 8 hours of interactive audio-only instruction, effective language learning with real-life spoken practice sessions. HEAR IT, LEARN IT, SPEAK IT® What is the Pimsleur® difference? The Pimsleur Method provides the most effective language-learning program ever developed. The Pimsleur Method gives you quick command of Romanian structure without tedious drills. Learning to speak Romanian can actually be enjoyable and rewarding. The key reason most people struggle with new languages is that they aren't given proper instruction, only bits and pieces of a language. Other language programs sell only these pieces -- dictionaries; grammar books and instructions; lists of hundreds or thousands words and definitions; audios containing useless drills. They leave it to you to assemble these pieces as you try to speak. Pimsleur enables you to spend your time learning to speak the language rather than just studying its parts. When you were learning English, could you speak before you knew how to conjugate verbs? Of course you could. That learning process is what Pimsleur replicates. Pimsleur presents the whole language as one integrated piece so you can succeed. With Pimsleur you get: - Grammar and vocabulary taught together in everyday conversation, - Interactive audio-only instruction that teaches spoken language organically, - The flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere, - 30-minute lessons designed to optimize the amount of language you can learn in one sitting. Millions of people have used Pimsleur to gain real conversational skills in new languages quickly and easily, wherever and whenever -- without textbooks, written exercises, or drills. Conversational Romanian includes the 10 lessons from Pimsleur's Basic Romanian plus an additional 6 lessons. The 16 lessons in Conversational Romanian are the same first 16 lessons in the Pimsleur Comprehensive Romanian Level 1. Pimsleur learners progress from either the Basic or the Conversational to the Comprehensive Level 1, and not from Basic to Conversational edition.
