[2] Is Assimil Good For Learning Languages?

In today’s episode, I go into some serious detail and give a very honest review of the Assimil Method and series for language learning.


  • Assimil’s main method seems to be based on anecdotal evidence and even its publishers struggled to explain it.
  • You cannot become a B2 speaker of any language solely through a translation book method.
  • Assimil may be better suited to closely related language pairs.
  • The organization of the MP3’s (super pack) is perfect.
