None of the local community colleges offer their Spanish classes during the day—they schedule them for night time when people get off work. Unfortunately when I try to take classes at night, I wind up paying for all the classes but going to about a quarter of them because my mate has to work late on some emergency on class nights.
So now I’m looking into audio courses. From what I see online, most of them cost about $200 or more for a set of 15-16 CDs. Only real question is which ones are likely to be any good. Leaning towards the ones using something called the “Pimsleur” system, which according to their propaganda was developed by a linguist who studied how people learn languages.
Anybody out there who’s tried one of these and can recommend/warn me away from it?
