Dr. Paul Pimsleur (b. 1926, d. 1976) devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world's leading experts in applied linguistics. He was fluent in French, good in German, and had a working knowledge of Italian, Russian, Modern Greek, and Mandarin Chinese. After obtaining his Ph.D. in French and a Masters in Psychology from Columbia University, he taught French Phonetics and Linguistics at UCLA. He later became Professor of Romance Languages and Language Education, and Director of The Listening Center (a state-wide language lab) 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 did research on the psychology of language learning and in 1969 was Section Head of Psychology of Second Language Learning at the International Congress of Applied Linguistics.

Dr. Pimsleur was a member of the American Association of Teachers of French (AATF), American Educational Research Association (AERA), Modern Language Association (MLA), and a founding member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), who award the Paul Pimsleur Award for Research in Foreign Language Education every year.

His many books and articles revolutionized theories of language learning and teaching. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed a new method (The Pimsleur Method) that is 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."

Format: Audio CD
As a caveat my child is on the young side (2.5) and this disc comes with a book that has activities that she is too young to do yet. That said, she asks me to play these CDs EVERY day in the car. The voices are mostly authentic to the show, but I was little disappointed by the lack of music from the show.

There are four stories, and each has a scenario (e.g., the park) around which vocabulary words and sentences are introduced. The disc is mostly in English, with the Spanish words and phrases worked in. It's good for children who do not speak Spanish to learn some basics, but if you are looking for an immersion-Spanish disc, look elsewhere.

The stories often have different characters saying the same sentence, changing the verb forms/possessives as appropriate, which is useful and teaches a little basic sentence structure in addition to vocabulary words. Each story ends with a couple of songs in Spanish.

My kid is nuts about these discs (I bought the other set as well) as I mentioned, and she does repeat the words while the disc is played. It's been a worthwhile purchase for me to entertain her in the car.

My two and a half year old daughter and I have been listening to "Speak Spanish with Dora & Diego! Vamanos! Let's Go!" for a few weeks now. The Dora and Diego set is created in association with Pimsleur and includes two books, two CDs, and a parent guide. There are actually four stories in all, because the books each have two stories in them.

We have used this set in several ways so far. My daughter and I have sat down and read the books together and we have also sat down in front of the CD player and listened to the CD with me helping my daughter point to the pictures in the book. The easiest (for me) way to use this set is to play the CD in the car and hand the book back to my daughter in her car seat. I'm not sure how effective this is, but she's a captive audience in her car seat and doesn't complain when I turn on the CD!

How effective is this program? Hmmm.... I wish I could answer that, but I honestly don't know. It's a lot better than "Pio Peep", but on par with "Play and Learn Spanish", both of which I'll review later.

its cute and funny and a tad fun. my son is 11 and he laughed, scoffed at dora at first...then he chooses this as his preffered spanish tutorial. of course dora doesnt dig too deep in spanish..more of a psych-warm-up to spanish.

These CD's/books are interesting/fun enough to keep my child's attention, but teach basic Spanish vocabulary. I'm also learning better with this product than with traditional language learning methods.

While the stories are helpful, the songs are unintelligible. I see no reason to include songs that cannot be understood.
