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.

Core Vocabulary
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.

Organic Learning
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.

Active Participation
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 (Western) Language
Armenian (Western) is the dialect most often encountered among Armenians outside of Armenia. It is spoken by the majority of Armenians living throughout the Middle East, North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia, collectively called the Armenian Diaspora.

I speak English only, I know a handfull Spanish words. I expected getting started on a language would be harder, I'm thoroughly impressed with this method!
Western Armenian is spoken by the Armianian diaspora outside of Armenia, we have a large population here in southern California. Using these 10 lessons I was able to get a good start learning the language. I can greet/farewell, express thanks or distaste, ask for a variety of basic everyday items, refer to now/later or other references of time, and ask any basic who/what/when/where/why type of question.

I'm most impressed with my own ability to pronunciate things properly using this method, I am complemented on this most of all. I hope they are planning to make more Western Armenian lessons! It was very easy to use in the car or using my headphones during other downtime, it helps being able to speak it aloud when prompted but in public places I found it worked just as well if I didn't speak aloud. Listen to each lesson until your comfortable with it before you move on, and go back to the second lesson and listen all the way through again once you've done 5 or 6. I plan to use Pimsleur to learn my next language, again very impressed!

Very difficult to understand clearly the audio, there is nothing printed or pdf files. You hear something and you have to repeat it like a parrot even if you are not sure about what you hear and a lot of time just one letter makes a big difference. I had to ask armenian people lots of questions to be sure that I was hearing well, so if you need people to help you to understand the language you are learning , the method is not good enough to learn it alone. I've contacted the support about that and they answered that s the way pimsleur works. Of course it must be good enough to learn french, english or any languages with the same alphabet and sounds, but armenian has more letters and more sounds. Very desappointed, I will not recommande it to anybody.
If you are alone you must prepare yourself to buy books and grammar to be sure what you hear, so it s a lot of money you have to spend

Western Armenian works very well, especially good to re listen to the last 3 units for practice. The course needs a level 2 and 3.

Comments about Pimsleur Armenian (Western) Level 1 MP3:

My wife is Armenian, and I have tried several method to learn her mother language. I travel a lot for work, with changing working hours, making it difficult to attend a class on a regular basis. Pimsleur' method with audio embarked in app ready to be whenever I'm ready is perfect. Now I just need level 2 to be produced, to continue learning and be able to talk with my her family without translation !

I've taken Rosetta Stone on and off for many years. But never been able to sit down and have an easy conversation with someone in German. This program [Pimsleur] has really helped me learn how to understand German audibly as well as help me flow my words and sentences.
