Biography

Dr. Pimsleur spent the majority of his life teaching and researching languages, and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After obtaining his Ph.D. in French from Columbia University, he taught French Phonetics and Phonemics, and supervised the language laboratory at UCLA. He went on to become Professor of Romance Languages and Language Education, and Director of The Listening Center at Ohio State University; Professor of Education and Romance Languages at the State University of New York at Albany; and a Fulbright lecturer at the University of Heidelberg. He later founded Pimsleur with partner Charles Heinle.

The Pimsleur language learning system is a language acquisition method developed by Dr. Paul Pimsleur. It is based on four main principles: Anticipation, Graduated Interval Recall, Core Vocabulary, and Organic Learning.

    certain languages have 3 units each comprising 30 audio lessons roughly lasting between 25 and 30 minutes. If you complete the 3 units you may say that you've reached level A1 of the CEFR. If you want to move forward you might want to give a chance to the LanguagePod101 programmes.

    Another bid for Icelandic! Currently going full steam ahead with Swedish, I'm loving it so far.

    Going to Germany in September, should be enough time to be fairly decent. Luckily I'm staying with friends who speak English, just in case

    this is a decent program to practice pronunciation and a bit of listening comprehension. this program is best used paired with something else. for example, you guys should check out the assimil series. its supposedly one of the best programs in europe for language learning. also look for the ultimate beginner intermediate series of books by living language. get those books, plus pimsleur, and watching movies/listening to music in your target language then you should be good to go. i happen to use all of those plus im taking university courses so im hoping to be fluent in no time.
