Over 50 years ago, Dr. Paul Pimsleur developed a method that transformed language learning. Since then, millions have used this system to begin to speak and understand a new language quickly. You can too.

Why Pimsleur?
• Quick + Easy – Only 30 minutes a day.
• Portable + Flexible – Core lessons can be done anytime, anywhere, and easily fit into your busy life.
• Proven Method – Works when other methods fail.
• Self-Paced – Go fast or go slow – it’s up to you.
• Based in Science – Developed using proven research on memory and learning.
• Cost-effective – Less expensive than classes or immersion, and features all native speakers.
• Genius – Triggers your brain’s natural aptitude to learn.
• Works for everyone – Recommended for ages 13 and above.

With Unlimited mobile, you learn fast as you roam free.

Still only 30 minutes a day, Pimsleur Unlimited is completely portable, and audio lessons are hands-free; you can do them in the car, at the gym, or while out for a walk. Lessons sync across devices, so while you’re free to ramble, the app keeps your language learning firmly on track.

Digital flash cards and the Quick Match interactive phrase game provide listening and reading practice and review, and Speak Easy conversations help you to engage with the language. They pull you into the culture, fixing rhythm and intonation in your mind, and helping you to develop a near-native accent.

Every course is painstakingly crafted to highlight and explore the culture where your new language is spoken. Pimsleur Unlimited features high-res photos with light bulb captions that delight and inform, and covering everything from art and architecture, to festivals, history, vivid landscapes, and cultural curiosities.

What You’ll Learn
In the first 10 lessons, you’ll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You’ll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you’ll build on what you’ve learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations and add over a hundred new vocabulary items. You’ll understand more of what you hear, and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons, you’ll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase, more directions are given in the target language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You’ll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Twenty reading lessons are included to provide you with an introduction to reading. These lessons are designed to teach you to sound out words with the correct pronunciation and accent.

Learning the sound of each letter alone and in culturally distinct combinations allows your brain to process what you’re hearing in the audio lessons from a new and different perspective. It’s a powerful combination that makes Pimsleur different from every other method on the market.

Review on Your Terms
Reinforce what you’ve learned quickly and effectively with flash cards. Created to help you practice the most-essential vocabulary, the cards contain words and short phrases from the daily audio lessons. The Quick Match interactive phrase game will help you to challenge yourself with longer phrases and sentences in a fun and fast-paced way. Brush up, or dive deep — it’s all up to you.

Expand Your Horizons. Reconnect with Your Heritage. Travel with Confidence.
Experience language learning like never before. Pimsleur Unlimited: easy, engaging, and fun.

The Spanish Language

Pimsleur's Spanish programs teach an educated Latin American Spanish, featuring speakers from Colombia and Mexico. Students can expect to understand the lessons clearly and to be understood by Spanish speakers everywhere.

Pimsleur Unlimited is designed for use by one registered user, plus up to three household members, and may be installed on up to four devices.

This product has made learning Spanish very easy. I learned to speak the language and not interpret from English to Spanish. Maybe one lesson per day is a little much, I did the same lesson 2 or 3 times before moving on. I would recommend this approach. Love the fact I can load it on 4 of my media devices.Flash cards and vocabulary building skills a real plus.

I am enjoying the product, but for me at least it takes more than 30 minutes a day. The flash cards are helpful and the quick match phrases, but I need to do them several times.

Don't look at the answers for the quick match as it is far too easy to chose the correct one even if you only know one word.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Level 1 Unlimited Software:

I've progressed through most of Level 1 of the Pimsleur Spanish program. I've used a number of language learning tools, and some that compete directly with Pimsleur (audio lessons). Pimsleur is superior to any other program I've tried. The rate at which new topics are introduced, the frequency that older material is reviewed, and the learning pace overall is thoughtful and ensures you move forward quickly without getting overwhelmed.

Service and delivery comments:

Pimselur could be improved by adding more reading lessons, and by incorporating writing lessons as well. Conversational fluency is great, but reading would achieve that goal even more quickly than practicing the audio lessons alone. Adding visual aids to help stimulate learning would be helpful, as well.

Comments about Pimsleur Spanish Level 1 Unlimited Software:

Pimsleur is perfect for me, because I don't have much time to sit down at my computer and work on language, but I have lots of time spent cleaning up after my kids and driving for errands & kids activities. I use Pimsleur on my iPhone and start it up often when I'm doing mindless tasks.
I also intend to keep up with the activities on the computer, which don't take much time once you've done the podcasts.
Before starting, I wondered if I'd be able to keep it up, but because it fits so well into my current activities, I am able to do it easily, and I really enjoy learning the language.
