The Pimsleur Method
We make no secret of what makes this powerful method work
so well. Paul Pimsleur spent his career researching and perfecting the precise
elements anyone can use to learn a language quickly and easily. Here are a few
of his “secrets”:
The Principle of Anticipation
In the nanosecond between a cue and your response, your
brain has to work to come up with the right word. Having to do this boosts
retention, and cements the word in your mind.
Words, phrases, and sentences are selected for their usefulness
in everyday conversation. We don’t overwhelm you with too much, but steadily
increase your ability with every lesson.
Graduated Interval Recall
Reminders of new words and structures come up at the
exact interval for maximum retention and storage into your long-term memory.
You work on multiple aspects of the language
simultaneously. We integrate grammar, vocabulary, rhythm, melody, and
intonation into every lesson, which allows you to experience the language as a
living, expressive form of human culture.
Learning in Context
Research has shown that learning new words in context
dramatically accelerates your ability to remember. Every scene in every
Pimsleur lesson is set inside a conversation between two people. There are no
drills, and no memorization necessary for success.
The Pimsleur Method + active learner participation =
success. This method works with every language and every learner who follows
it. You gain the power to recall and use what you know, and to add new words
easily, exactly as you do in English.
The Armenian (Eastern) Language
Eastern Armenian is the official language of the Republic
of Armenia. It is also spoken by Armenians living in Iran, Russia, Georgia, and
the former Soviet republics.
