It was so easy I couldn’t help but learn Italian. Everyone thinks it is so hard. It’s hard because you’re doing the wrong thing. If you do Pimsleur, it is actually quite easy.
Michele from Connecticut

Now you can learn to speak {{Language}}—with a near-native accent—in just 30 days.

Have you always dreamed of speaking {{Language}}? Traveling to Italy and striking up a conversation with the locals? Wowing your friends by ordering dinner in perfect French? Would you like to get a leg up in your career by speaking Spanish – or even Mandarin Chinese?

Now you can learn any new language—even if you found it impossible before—with Pimsleur’s proven method. With the exclusive Pimsleur Method, there’s no studying, no memorizing, no vocabulary, no complicated rules. You’ll be able to learn any language you want as you go about your day. You can learn on your way to work ... while you’re out running errands ... cooking dinner ... or walking the dog ... in just 30 minutes a day.

In fact, Pimsleur’s scientifically-proven Method is so powerful, you’ll actually start speaking a new language after just one lesson.

How is it possible? 50 years ago, Dr. Paul Pimsleur, a linguistics professor and researcher at Ohio State University and UCLA, discovered that the way to rapidly acquire a new language is by hearing the language used in everyday situations and interacting with it so it easily sticks in your mind.

Es muy fabuloso!

I moved to South Florida where a lot of people speak Spanish and felt left out of conversation many times. After a couple of months of listening in the car ... I now understand a lot of spoken Spanish....I have several new friends as a result of my effort to learn."

JEFF FROM FLORIDA

Traditional Teaching Methods are the Kiss of Total Silence.

Through his research, Dr. Pimsleur found that traditional teaching methods like memorizing vocabulary, conjugating verbs, and practicing grammar actually SLOW DOWN your ability to learn. He called them the kiss of total silence because they made it nearly impossible to speak. It’s the reason learning a language feels so difficult, when it should feel totally natural.

It makes sense when you think about it. Have you ever seen a toddler memorizing vocabulary lists? Or picking out parts of speech in a sentence diagram? Of course not. Children learn language the way we were meant to—by listening. That’s because we are hardwired to remember sounds and store them in our memory automatically.

It’s the same way you pick up a song on the radio. You don’t have to study the lyrics or understand musical notes and chords to remember a song. Chances are, if you hear a song once you can sing along the next time you hear it.

I learn Hindi while I drive to work. I've started dating an Indian guy. He lights up every time I talk to him in Hindi. it's a great way to show respect. And it's easy! ... when I met his family, I surprised everyone."

The Four Secrets to Dr. Pimsleur's Method

Dr. Pimsleur developed a 4-part, language-learning system that allows you to access the language-learning centers in your brain. His 4 principles make it possible for you to:

Permanently pick up new words and phrases.

Pimsleur called the technique that makes this possible “Graduated Interval Recall.” Through his research in linguistics, he discovered that mindless repetition of vocabulary words has a dulling affect on the brain. However, when words and phrases are repeated at specific time intervals, they automatically move from your short-term memory into your long-term memory.

Learn quickly and respond easily.

We’ve all experienced that tongue-tied feeling when we’re asked to respond to a question in a foreign language. Minutes tick by as you rack your brain for the right words. Dr. Pimsleur developed an arrangement for each lesson consisting of “mini-step challenges” he called “anticipation.” This exclusive technique erases the “fear factor” in conversing and makes it possible to respond naturally and effortlessly in a foreign language.

Speak at an intermediate level after only 30 days.

Although every language has hundreds of thousands of words, you only need to know about 1,500 of them to hold a basic conversation and sound like a native speaker – and only about 5,000 to speak fluently. These “core vocabulary” words are what your Pimsleur course will focus on so you can internalize the words before moving on. Once you master these words, expanding your vocabulary is easy.

Learn grammar by listening—not studying.

You don’t need to study grammar to speak correctly. Your internal language center intuitively knows when something sounds correct. For example, if someone said, “Him and I goed to the store” you would automatically know it isn’t correct. With Pimsleur, you’ll learn proper pronunciation and grammar through conversation – the same way you learned your first language.

These 4 scientifically-sequenced principles are what make the Pimsleur Method so highly effective. The method can work for you just as it has for millions of others. All you need to do is listen and respond. It’s that easy!

Start Speaking Today

The Pimsleur Method Works when Other Methods Fall Short

Whether you tried to learn in high school, college, or from another program you quickly realized the goal of the course wasn't on communicating. You had to memorize rules, translate sentences, or point and click on photos on a computer screen or other device. But with Pimsleur, you’ll listen to two native speakers, while your tutor coaches you on how to respond. Each lesson is scientifically-sequenced to ensure it will work for you the same way it’s worked for millions of others before.

Take a look at the chart below and you'll see why Pimsleur is light years ahead of the competition!

Perhaps the best thing Rosetta Stone has done is advertise. But, like most programs, Rosetta Stone focuses on reading, writing, and grammar. You’re tethered to a screen reading and doing drills. As Dr. Pimsleur discovered more than 50 years ago – this is not the optimal way to learn. Besides, do you really want to spend more time staring at a computer after you get home from work?

I love to travel, and I love to speak with the people when I get there! I have listened to Pimsleur in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and now Dutch. If you want to learn a language, start with Pimsleur before you do anything else!”

ELLEN DAWSON FROM NEW HARBOR, MAINE

Pimsleur is great! After completing Rosetta Stone, I still couldn't really SAY anything, I knew vocabulary but struggled with making up sentences and conversing. Pimsleur is great at forcing me to recall phrases and sentences, really allowing me to converse more effectively. Pimsleur also does a much better job with grammar.”

JACKEYE FROM ANCHORAGE, ALASKA

It was really worth of money. I am in love with the Pimsleur method. I just studied for 30 min a day. I am on lesson 17 and I can speak basic Spanish. I can not believe it. It was really worth of money.”

DR. P. HOSSEINI FROM RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA

Pimsleur is definitely the way to go. I also own Rosetta Stone and I can tell you that I have learned more Spanish in 1 month with Pimsleur than I have learned in a year with Rosetta Stone.”

MACKY FROM ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Pimsleur dances. It prompts, cajoles, teases, prods you into saying stuff. It is witty. It keeps you constantly on your toes, getting you to think how to use parts of one sentence you’ve learned in combination with parts of another sentence.”

ELLEN JOVIN, POLYGLOT and BLOGGER

I recommend your program to everyone. I've used your Italian, your German, your Japanese, and now your Swedish, all to great effect …”

DAVID SEDARIS, HUMORIST and BEST-SELLING AUTHOR

It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s simple. To be honest, I didn’t think that I would be able to learn a foreign language at 59 years old... I was wrong. With the Pimsleur system, you can’t help but learn.”

KATHY LOWREY FROM LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY
