Which audio programs are best for learning other languages?

Original message posted by Jesse O'Reilly on 06-22-05.

Of course, the best way to learn another language is through total immersion, but what audio courses have you found helpful in language learning? I've tried Pimmsleur's Mandarin and Cantonese courses, but they seem pretty repetitive. Any suggestions?

Jesse, I'm a big fan of Living Language. They have textbooks that use accompanying audio CD's to read the actual text. What a great idea!
I didn't get too much out of Pimmsleur. Matter-of-fact, I try to avoid any program that promises to have me speaking Russian in 10 days.

I live in a University town. I've found that going to the language teachers at the university and finding out which textbooks they use can be helpful. They're a little more expensive, but often more exhaustive than the books you find in a bookstore.
