Product Description

Dr. Pimsleur's extremely accessible and successful program teaches you language in the same way a native speaker would-through exposure to everyday, normal conversations. Instead of chopping up a foreign language into a little but of grammar with a dash of vocabulary, he presents the language as a complete course. And rather than memorizing repetitive drills that only dull learning, Dr. Pimsleur's "input/output" system of learning actually challenges your brain. By teaching information, and afterwards asking you to recall what you've learned, your brain transitions the language from short term to long term memory, leading to successful fluency.
This course is audio based; 5 CDs are included with two 30 minute lessons per CD. There are no workbooks and notetaking is discouraged as speaking and listening is emphasized. CDs come in a black, zippered CD case.

Author Bio

Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method based on two key principles:  the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training that he called “Graduated Interval Recall.”  This Method has been applied to the many levels and languages of the Pimsleur Programs.

Editorial Reviews

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." -- AudioFile Magazine
"EXTREMELY ACCESSIBLE...each section within the lessons is short enough to hold our attention, and there is enough repetition to teach even those who consider themselves slow learners...Pimsleur [programs] are extremely thorough and easy to use -- quite lively!" -- Boston Herald
"Learn French while commuting, German while jogging, Spanish (or Russian, Italian, and Japanese) while cooking all with NO WRITTEN MATERIALS!" -- New York Daily News
"Designed for the ear and not the eye...the lessons provide PERFECT 30-minute bites of work." -- St Louis Post-Dispatch
"Learn to habla español or parlez français before your next trip aboard. The interactive LESSONS CHALLENGE STUDENTS to use new words in conversation instead of memorize them." -- American Way (American Airlines inflight magazine)
"I tried other language programs with little success...This is the best by far!" -- Pamela A. Mitchell, Pilot, International Society of Women Airline Pilots
