^I have that same problem.
^ They are pretty nice. I'm just starting french too, in the 11th lesson now.
Also when you finish all 90 pimsleur lessons (and the bonus lessons too), you can go either try to study traditionally, since the language will be a lot easier. Or you can try to find a language partner online.
(Language partner= You get online with someone, he teaches you his native language, you teach him yours. There are a couple of free online networks.)
@Digi: Check the link out. You get to hear the first lessons of the course for free. (Of coursing torrenting is free, but this is convenient.)
I'll keep your suggestion in mind. Just need to get home to try it out... I'm still stuck at work.
