Product Description

Review

"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

About the Author

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.

I have spent a lot of money lately on French training books. This by far is the best. It's better than French for Dummies. I had considered Rosetta Stone (due to its TV advertising), but I don't want to have to interact with a computer. I play the CDs in the car and practice during my daily commute. I like the way the lessons build and the way it is getting me to respond more automatically in French. After this 8 CD beginner set, I will buy the larger Pimsleur program.

I have tried learning foreign languages in the past but always get depressed due to traditional teaching methods. I played this CD and learnt first 2 French Sentences within 10 minutes. I completely agree with Pimsleur's method for learning Foreign Language. My 9 year old son is learning French in school and feels comfortable with French with the help of this Course. I recommend this to all specially those who are skeptical or have lost the confidence in learning a foreign lanuage. You can play each chapter and continue the chapter from where you left off.

We have had this CD about a month and learned quite a lot already. We listen to it half an hour a day and are pleased with the results.

Very logical flow, easy to follow. If you have the discipline and willing to invest few hours this will definitely help.

Great learning tool. This is the second Pimslear course I've used. I had purchased the Spanish course for a trip to Peru and it sure helped me get around the Country. Both are very good introductions to a new language as I'm sure the other courses are.

I am really satisfied, but I am old and they are rather hard. I will keep plugging along as it is good for my memory.
Thanks for the quick service.
