Overview

Speak Arabic in ten days!

Dr. Paul Pimsleur

One of the world's foremost authorities in applied linguistics, Dr. Pimsleur revolutionized the teaching of languages with his theories of Phonetics and Phonemics, first developed at UCLA. He refined his instructional techniques while heading language programs at Ohio State University, the State University of New York at Albany, as a Fulbright lecturer, and as a founding member of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

The Simplest, Most Effective Language Course Ever Developed!

Using the unique method developed by Dr. Paul Pimsleur, you will learn a language the way native speakers do-through exposure to vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation all at once, in phrases and conversational speech. And by applying Dr. Pimsleur's two key proven principles-the Principle of Graduated Interval Recall and the Principle of Anticipation-this program delivers results faster and more effectively than any other language-learning method-whether classroom or packaged.

The Principle of Graduated Interval Recall-This is a complex name for a very simple theory about memory. In his research, Dr. Pimsleur discovered how long students remembered new information and at what intervals they needed to be reminded of it. If reminded too soon or too late, they failed to retain the information. This discovery enabled him to create a schedule of exactly when and how the information should be reintroduced.

The Principle of Anticipation-Before Dr. Pimsleur created his teaching method, language courses were based on the principle of repetition. Teachers drummed words into the students' minds over and over, as if the mind were a record whose grooves wore deeper with repetition. However, neurophysiologists tell us that, on the contrary, simple and unchallenging repetition has a hypnotic, even dulling effect on the learning process. Dr. Pimsleur discovered that learning accelerates when there is an "input/output" system of interaction, in which students receive information and then are asked to retrieve and use it.

The Pimsleur® Method gives you quick command of the language's structure, so you can easily apply your core vocabulary in everyday conversation.

    does anyone have a pronunciation key/transcript?

    While I seem to be learning quickly from this program, I am slightly unsure if I am pronouncing thinks correctly. It would be awesome to have some kind of transcript or pronunciation key as to how to phonetically say these words. Other than that, I am enjoying learning something new, and impressing my best friend whos first language is Arabic. :)

    Dialect is not mentioned in these materials

    It would be extremely helpful to know what dialect of Arabic this material is being presented in. The program owner's manual states that it is a 'standard 'educated' speech' version of Arabic. I am taking Standard Arabic in a class, and this is not what is being taught in these lessons. However, the method being used does let me rapidly catch on to what is being said in the dialect being used.

    Very good Overall

    I really have enjoyed this teaching tool. I like the way the pronunciation and explanations are clear. Plus the review of phrases and asking you to respond is very helpful. I know some of the words taught in this language kit would vary depending on the dialect but it still is a good start for a foundation.
