Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
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 do better when I have written material as well as spoken material as I am a visual learner, but apparently Mr.. Pimsleur believes we learn better without it. I've lived in So. CA. for over 30 years and have taken college classes, conversational Spanish through different community programs and "learn Spanish at home" tapes/CDs and books during these years, and retained little (except how to say "Excuse me, I'm looking for my luggage"). I currently volunteer at a local food pantry and have the opportunity to practice what I've learned and I've also learned that having people to practice with is very, very helpful. For the first time, people understand me and I understand them - as long as we keep it simple - for now at least. I get so excited about what I'm learning in the lessons that I want to "break the rules" and do two or three lessons in ONE day!!! However, I have found that if I do break the rules and go over one lesson two or three days in a row that I retain more. It's physiological. As we age, our brains don't learn language as easily as we do when we are children, so naturally, it's more difficult after one is, oh, say old enough to belong to the AARP. Anyway, I highly recommend this product for those highly motivated to learn the language!
Here are the strong points of Pimsleur's approach:
1) It's perhaps the easiest way to learn pronunciation of all the programs out there. They teach pronunciation by saying words slowly syllable by syllable until you put together the whole word. It's especially useful if you want to learn a language like Arabic, Chinese, or any hard-to-pronounce language.
2) The program begins with a simple conversation and they keep building on it lesson by lesson.
3) The conversations are based on real life scenarios so many of the things you learn you can put to use.
4) You don't need to get a lesson 100% before moving on to the next. They're great with reviewing the contents of previous lessons while teaching you new things. So you can just keep moving on with the lessons and you'll see that by the end of lesson 3 for example, you've got most of lessons 1 and 2 down.
5) No rote repetitions are necessary with their method. No writing, note taking, etc, just listen to the CDs.
6) If you love their method, you'll be able to learn the basics of many languages easily. I used their programs to begin learning Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and Arabic.
Downside of Pimsleur:
1) If you're natural at picking up foreign languages, you'll find their method very slow.
2) Even after you finish all the levels for a particular language, you're still at the beginning stages of the language, and you'll need to continue with other more advanced programs. Or better yet, with a native speaker if you can.
3) The transcripts don't come with the program. You'll have to do a Google search for those if you want them.
4) They're more expensive than many other programs.
I want to emphasize that language learning is a highly individual process and other programs may end up working better for you. If you can, it's definitely worth buying the beginning version of other programs to see how much you relate to their teaching methods. To see if you like Pimsleur's approach, you can get a used copy of the Quick and Simple program for less than $10. I found the cheapest way to get the full copy of Pimsleur's I, II, and III programs is by buying the MP3-only version on audible.com with an annual subscription. Each program costs 5 credits which comes out to be less than $50 for each level with the annual platinum membership.
