Dr. Paul Pimsleur (1928-1976)
Dr. Pimsleur was one of the world's foremost experts in applied linguistics. He taught French phonetics and phonemics at UCLA after obtaining his Ph.D. in French and a master's degree in psychological statistics from Columbia University. Pimsleur went on to faculty positions at Ohio State and SUNY at Albany, where he held dual professorships in Education and French.

His research focused on language acquisition, especially the organic learning that takes place as children learn to speak their native language.

He discovered how to organize the materials of the second language to fit the one way that the stream of speech of an unknown language can enter the consciousness of the adult and be processed through the language learning power of the human brain.

He applied the results of his research on the acquisition process to second-language learning and the results became the Pimsleur Language Learning Method.

I purchased Italian Unlimited level One and it has worked great for me. I am planning a trip to Italy in a few months and I thought I would like to get acquainted with the language before I go. I have been impressed with the system and have learned very fast (I am already a fluent Spanish speaker, and that helps a lot so if you have no foreign language background you might not learn it as fast as I did, since Spanish and Italian are so similar). The reason I gave three stars is twofold. First, the package advertises an interactive section where you can go online with a headset and microphone and interact with native speakers and other students. This option is "greyed out" so I called and was told that this part of the course was down until mid 2015. I felt like I had some of what I paid for the course was not included with what I got. Second, I have blown through Italian I and wanted to do II, or perhaps II and III. Unless I am wrong they sell Italian I, and Italian I through III, so if I want to continue I have to purchase I all over again in order to get II and III.

BIG MINUS....but, maybe not for you...This is a DVD and this is not advertised very well. The program works only online (at least on my computer) even after deactivating automatic updates. Pimsleur customer service is friendly but has no solution...I uninstalled and reinstalled....and after letting all updates run on my machine and restarting it a few times with updates..I then deactivated the updates and tried to start offline-bottom line it does not work off line and they do not have a solution to this issue yet???? Their suggestion "You can tranfer the files to mediaplayer" (& i think IPOD????)..or of course only online.....I enjoyed previous pimsleur products-this one I not too happy with and spent way too much time trying to get it to work.
