Spanish is an Exciting Language to Learn

Learning Spanish is not as difficult as you might think. When you listen to a conversation in Spanish, you might think that it is not possible for you to learn to speak the language fluently. Learning Spanish is a skill, just like any other. Anyone can do it, with varying degrees of success. It can be your ticket to more opportunities and more money.  It can also make your travels much more satisfying.

When you are traveling in a Spanish speaking country it is not 100% necessary to know the language if you intend to go to any of the major tourist resorts in Spain or South America. Most Spaniards in those areas speak at least a little English and all large companies have some bilingual employees. Speaking Spanish is not just for those people who live in those countries.   Turistas (tourists) come from all over the world and learning a little Spanish can help you to express yourself to the local populations as well as getting around.  Learning Spanish can be a great hobby that will greatly enhance your travels. 

Learning to speak Spanish is a rich and rewarding experience, but it takes time. If you are like many Spanish learners, finding the time to work with a new language is often more challenging than the Spanish language itself.  That is why so many people today are learning while they are driving or exercising.  That way you can learn during the same time you are doing something else.

The Spanish language is the second official language in the United States. Statistics reveal that by the year 2020, out of every 100 Americans, 35 of them will be speaking Spanish as the mother tongue.  Learning Spanish is essentially learning to relate to our next door neighbor and   this makes a lot of sense today.

Speaking Spanish can be a real asset to employers.  It does not matter if you are a foreman in rural Oregon or a physician in a community clinic in East Austin, Spanish can be a big help to you.  Spanish is currently one of the world’s most commonly spoken languages. 

Spanish is one of the four official languages of the United Nations. Spanish is one of the most widely used languages in the world. It is spoken in all of Latin America (with the exception of Brazil), in many parts of the United States, and in Spain. Spanish is related to several languages in terms of phonology, grammar and orthography. Of these, Portuguese is perhaps one of the most similar in terms of major languages.

Is it time for you to think seriously about learning the Spanish language

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!



Who is Dr. Paul Pimsleur?

Dr. Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. 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.
