Pimsleur Approach Italian 1




After learning how to speak a bit of French, Spanish and German through the Pimsleur Approach method, I decided to give the Pimsleur Approach Italian 1 a try, which well all know Italian is the language of love.

For those of you who don't know about the Pimsleur Approach, I'll give you a short history lesson. The method was originally developed in 1963 by the world renowned linguist, Dr. Paul Pimsleur. His Pimsleur Method changed the way languages are learned. His extensive research lead him to create the two ground-breaking principles - the Principle of Graduated Interval Recall and the Principle of Anticipation. Both this principles are blended onto the audio CDs, this way you no longer have sit in a boring classroom, try to learn from a textbook or download any software. 

Each Pimsleur Approach program has 30 lessons (units) on 16 CDs, with each lesson being 30 minutes in length. The program requires you to listen to one lesson per day. If you haven't grasped the lesson in one session, then just repeat the lesson the next day and continue doing so until you have mastered the lesson. 

Back when I was in high school in the late 90s, there was only foreign language course available, French, which studying from a text book didn't help me a bit and I don't remember a single thing from the class besides from a few numbers. I was a little skeptical about the Pimsleur Approach at first, but after one program I quickly fell in love with it. After learning Spanish and German and relearning French, I decided to tryout the Pimsleur Approach Italian 1; in which all them follows the simple of route of teaching a person how to introduce themselves, ask specific questions (which is great if you are going on vacation in Italy) and say specific phrases. Italian is a beautiful language and I found myself learning to speak the language of love very easily. 

The Pimsleur Approach Italian 1 can be purchased on Amazon.com.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
