About the Author
Dr. Paul Pimsleur devoted his life to language teaching and testing and was one of the world’s leading experts in applied linguistics. After years of experience and research, Dr. Pimsleur developed The Pimsleur Method 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.

I do better when I have written material as well as spoken material as I am a visual learner, but apparently Mr.. Pimsleur believes we learn better without it. I've lived in So. CA. for over 30 years and have taken college classes, conversational Spanish through different community programs and "learn Spanish at home" tapes/CDs and books during these years, and retained little (except how to say "Excuse me, I'm looking for my luggage"). I currently volunteer at a local food pantry and have the opportunity to practice what I've learned and I've also learned that having people to practice with is very, very helpful. For the first time, people understand me and I understand them - as long as we keep it simple - for now at least. I get so excited about what I'm learning in the lessons that I want to "break the rules" and do two or three lessons in ONE day!!! However, I have found that if I do break the rules and go over one lesson two or three days in a row that I retain more. It's physiological. As we age, our brains don't learn language as easily as we do when we are children, so naturally, it's more difficult after one is, oh, say old enough to belong to the AARP. Anyway, I highly recommend this product for those highly motivated to learn the language!
By the time I was only halfway through listening to and talking out loud with this first Pimsleur set, I was speaking far better Spanish than I was after 4 and 1/2 years of reading from text books, listening to teachers lecture, spending hours trying to memorize grammar, and writing out sentences and such in school! I have just barely started listening to the Spanish 2 CD set and am already able to communicate fairly well with customers and neigbors!
I tried Rosetta Stone a few years ago, but it was so time consuming and slow. You had to be sitting at a computer the entire time, and though I spent 30 minutes a day for weeks at it, I didn't learn a whole lot.
I HIGHLY recommend the Pimsleur method of learning over any other I have tried.
