Learning Foreign Languages Using the Dr. Pimsleur Method

Language learning is often regarded as a lofty skill. Many people try to learn languages later in life specifically in order to keep their minds more active with age. Other individuals try to learn languages in order to move to new areas or bond with new groups of people. 

In an increasingly global society, being multilingual is regarded as an important job skill. Plenty of people have secured new jobs on that basis alone.

However, one of the reasons why learning new languages is held in such high regard is the fact that it is relatively difficult. Very young children can learn new languages easily, and if they were raised in a bilingual household, they will often grow up speaking both languages fluently. The critical language learning period has already passed for adults, however, and it is that much more difficult to learn languages for them.

Many adults who learn new languages will never be able to speak those languages at anything above an intermediate level, and even those who acquire a degree of fluency will still tend to speak their second and third languages with accents that mark them out as foreigners or non-native speakers. 

Many adults need new methods of learning foreign languages in order to develop any real fluency, and the Dr. Pimsleur Method has helped many adults learn foreign languages for decades.

A lot of Dr. Pimsleur’s methods focused specifically on his keen knowledge of human memory. When people learn new words in languages, they are not usually able to remember them perfectly afterwards. However, when they are exposed to them again, their recollection of those new words will be that much clearer. He was able to get a sense of the necessary rhythm that allows people to properly store the knowledge of new words for a long period of time.

The Dr. Pimsleur method of language learning also manages to clear up some of the problems with a lot of convention language instruction. 

Far too many language teachers force their students to learn too many words and too many grammatical structures. As such, students get overwhelmed, and they may fail to retain most of that information. The Dr. Pimsleur method focuses on establishing a solid foundation when it comes to the vocabulary and linguistics of a language, which can make all the difference for students. Students that have tried unsuccessfully to learn languages in the past may find that everything will be different for them when they try the Dr. Pimsleur method.
