Learn to Speak, Read, and Understand Latin American Spanish with Pimsleur Language Programs

(Book #1 of go Pimsleur)
The Pimsleur® Method teaches speaking and understanding right from the start
For almost 50 years, in over 50 languages, the Pimsleur® Method has been recognized by experts worldwide as one of the fastest and most effective ways to learn to speak another language. With Pimsleur you will learn Spanish in the same way you learned your first language as a child, acquiring the vocabulary of the new language, along with the melody, rhythm, and intonation of Spanish as used in everyday conversation.

The Science of Memory

Dr. Paul Pimsleur's research on memory was one of his most significant achievements: he discovered that if reminded of new words and information at gradually increasing intervals of time, the learners would remember the words or information for increasingly longer periods. Dr. Pimsleur documented that the acquisitions would actually move from short-term into long-term, or permanent, memory.

The Reading Program

Pimsleur Language Programs use the same revolutionary learning Method to teach you to read, as well as to speak. You will start by sounding out Spanish, learning to associate the new sound system to the English alphabet you know. Gradually you will learn to look at the words and see them with "Spanish eyes." And you will learn to read Spanish without an English accent.

About the Author

Pimsleur

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.
