How do You Spell Pimsleur?

We do have people spelling it Pimsler, Pimslor, Pimslur and Pimslir. But these spellings are all wrong. The right way to spell Pimsleur is P-I-M-S-L-E-U-R.

We all like to have our names spelled correctly and this is especially true for the internet. Google helps us with spelling when we spell a word incorrectly. It asks us: Did you mean: pimsleur

You get better results on the internet if you spell the word correctly.

Pimsleur Language Courses were developed by Dr. Paul Pimsleur. He taught at the University of California in Los Angles (UCLA), Columbia University, Ohio State University, State University of New York at Albany, and lectured at Ruprecht Karl University of Heidelberg as a Fulbright lecturer. He was instrumental in developing the Pimsleur Language Aptitude Battery (PLAB) which is used to calculate language aptitude by measuring verbal intelligence, auditory ability and motivation. PLAB is used today to determine a person's language learning aptitude or even a language learning disability among secondary school students.

What is the secret of the Pimsleur programs that makes this happen?

Pimsleur takes advantage of the way the human brain acquires language as speech and creates its methodology around the single fact that there is a central way everyone acquires the ability to communicate in any language.

It is well known from studies of the brain that human beings recognize, identify and capture patterns of speech. This is how human infants learn their mother tongue over the first six years of life.

With that task accomplished, everyone has the necessary physical and mental equipment to go on and acquire additional means of communication (languages). But—and this is the singular and highly complex factor that allows or prevents adults from doing what comes naturally—it is all in the selection and organization of the language materials which are created to manage second–language acquisition.

It is no longer efficient for an adult to learn by simply being exposed to other languages (as happens as a baby) because, being in possession of a fine first language which enables an adult to survive handsomely, there now has to be a different motivating factor as well as a second–language program which is especially prepared to recapitulate—in a special way—the original process of language acquisition for the adult mentality.

It was Dr. Paul Pimsleur who, through many years of research and development, discovered how to select and organize the materials of the second language to fit the one way that the stream of speech of an unknown language can enter the consciousness of the adult and be processed through the language learning power of the human brain.

The Pimsleur methodology, which makes language acquisition happen, looks singularly easy and transparent, but nothing could be farther from the truth. The science and skill (art, if you will) of creating a Pimsleur program requires, nay demands, some 2,000 person–hours of three trained individuals to prepare thirty lessons of a Pimsleur Program.

Why Pimsleur?

Pimsleur Language Courses are audio courses. Since there are no books included, the Pimsleur courses are great way to learn while driving, exercising, etc.

The Pimsleur language courses teach you to both speak and understand a new language. You're not just learning "phrases" with the Pimsleur Method, you're acquiring essential, conversational language skills! You'll be thrilled to discover you can hold real conversations in your new language when you have finished the course.

Dr. Paul Pimsleur's original and unique method enables you to acquire new language ability as effortlessly as children absord their native language. You will succeed because the Pimsleur program makes sure that you learn vocabulary and grammar correctly and easily in conversational settings without mindless repetition. Pimsleur is the only language program that includes exclusive, copyrighted memory training that ensures you will always remember what you have learned.

The Pimsleur audio programs use a natural mode of interactive communication -- questions and answers; statements and rejoinder; give and take -- beginning with the most-frequently-utilized vocabulary native speakers use in their everyday conversations with each other. These are the most useful words and structures every language learner needs to insure communication. It is like having a personal tutor. This along with the Graduated Interval Recall theory and the Principle of Anticipation, makes the Pimsleur language courses the most effective courses on the market today.

One of our customers told us he learned more from the Pimsleur language courses than he did from his personal tutor. Another customer told us she learned to speak better French from the first 30 lessons of the Pimsleur course than she did in 4 years of college where she minored in the French language.

Order today and be on your way to communicating in a new language!

After years of research and development, including field studies of spoken language training with adults, Dr. Pimsleur created a new method for self–instruction in spoken languages that is based on the way the human brain takes in language as speech. Of the several unique features of the Method, two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory that he called Graduated Interval Recall This is the only language teaching program which incorporates these essential principles to provide you with the most easy–to–do, amazingly rapid, and highly cost–effective learning method available.
