Yes. It is a good program that will help. However, it will not be entirely effective using it alone. You need supplemental methods of language learning to learn a language.

Mango is also a good language program. It is not as portable as Pimsleur, but it being computer based does help.

Learning a new language depends on dedication (practicing 3+ hrs a day) and your environment.

I learned a lot of Spanish from my ex since her Father only understood/spoke Spanish.

That also helps alot. Learning a language but not having anyone to practice with can be discouraging. Having a language study partner will help you learn faster and build confidence.
