The Pimsleur Method was also developed in the 1970’s! Despite being developed almost 50 years ago, it withstood the test of time and it’s still one of the highest rated language learning programs!

Pimsleur is an audio course compiled of 5 Levels, with each Level having 30 lessons of 30 minutes. So the full 5 Levels have 75 hours of material. This is for the Spanish course, but the less popular languages may have fewer levels available.

Pimsleur’s secret sauce is spaced repetition. The research states that we need to listen to the new information at certain intervals – very often at the beginning when the information is new and less often as time passes.

The exact numbers are: 0 seconds, 5 seconds, 25 seconds, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 1 hour, 5 hours, 1 day, 5 days, 25 days, 4 months, 2 years.

When listening to Pimsleur, you will hear a dialogue at the beginning of a lesson. The dialogue will then be explained and repeated. This will be following by getting you to repeat the material you just learned at the intervals suggested by the research.

So it’s nice that this course is based on actual scientific research, and the course does work!

Pimsleur is one of the highest rated courses in the polyglot community, and what I like the most about it is that it gets you speaking the language immediately!
