About the Pimsleur Method --
On the surface, the Pimsleur Method is a way to begin speaking and understanding a foreign language effortlessly. In fact, it is a dynamic combination of techniques that will pull you inside a language allowing you to engage in complex conversations with confidence and fluency.
Developed after years of research (and through much trial and error), Pimsleur« Language Programs are simply the most effective method for teaching people to speak foreign languages. Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was a leading expert in applied linguistics.
The Pimsleur Method is based on two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory training called Graduated Interval Recall. In addition, all Pimsleur courses feature highly-selected vocabulary taught in real-life situations that maximize your ability to recall and communicate on demand.
