Book Description

The Easiest and Fastest Way to Learn English Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what s going on in the world around you, learning English will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life. The best part is that it doesn t have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically-proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you ve tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn t stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

What s Included? - 30, 30-minute audio lessons - 60 minutes of reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading English designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent - In total, 16 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers - a Reading Booklet and a User s Guide 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 English 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. Reading instruction is included after Lesson 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading English. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with English pronunciation and accent. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format. 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 your native language. The English Language Approximately 375 million people speak English around the world and there are more than 50 countries where English is the primary language spoken, including in Australia, Canada, the Commonwealth Caribbean, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This course teaches Standard American English as spoken in the US. Instruction is in Farsi Persian. Tech Talk - CDs are formatted for playing in all CD players, including car players, and users can copy files for use in iTunes or Windows Media Player."
