The SWISS GERMAN Language:
Switzerland has four official languages (German, French, Italian, and Romansch), but the country's dominant language is Schwyzertuusch or Swiss German--a collection of regional and local dialects spoken by nearly two-thirds of the country's poplulation. Two forms of German are used in Switzerland. High German, or Hochdeutsch (also known as Schriftdeutsch, "Written German") is the same language used throughout German speaking Europe. Swiss German comprises dozens of regional dialects unique to Switzerland, and is unrecognizable to speakers of High German. No one speaks High German in everyday situations in Switzerland. Swiss German is used at home, at work, in shops, etc. Local radio and TV programs are also in Swiss German. High German is restricted to school education, the mass media and public speaking. Swiss German is a spoken language and not a written language. If you were a German speaking Swiss, you'd probably converse with friends and relatives in Swiss German, but send them e-mail or letters in the High German you learned in school.

Of the several unique features of the Method, two key principles: the Principle of Anticipation and a scientific principle of memory that he called Graduated Interval Recall This is the only language teaching program which incorporates these essential principles to provide you with the most easy–to–do, amazingly rapid, and highly cost–effective learning method available.

Another customer told us she learned to speak better French from the first 30 lessons of the Pimsleur course than she did in 4 years of college where she minored in the French language.

What Pimsleur Method Students Say About the Program:

"WOW, IT REALLY WORKS! Yes, it really works..If the first tape gives me this fluency/confidence; it goes without saying that the rest will do the same. I started speaking in German with my friends. Buy it, listen to it and find yourself speaking German."
          --Ik Soo Lim, Lausanne, Switzerland

"I found Pimsleur Portuguese VERY EASY TO USE. I have other self-taught programs, but this was by far the best. The speakers enunciated well and allowed you enough time to repeat the phrases without rushing. There is no writing or reading to be done. Using my walkman, I found it convenient to carry with me and listen. The key to this program is the repetition. I enjoy using it."
          --John Holmes, Burtonsville, MD

"Excellent! WELL WORTH THE MONEY. These tapes are tremedous for learning to speak the language. They train you to actually think in German - you are not just regurgitating set phrases, but learning to use the language in many different ways. I am saving my money for the second set - if the first set is this good, I can only imagine how much I could learn from all three sets!"
          --Wendi Dunlap, Seattle, WA

"PIMSLEUR IS THE BEST EVER! This is the best program available to learn Korean on the market today. I know because I have audited a dozen of them. It is very simple. Just play a side per day."
          --D.M. Rothschild, Ph.D.

"It's great! This audiobook made me and my little sister learn the basics of the French language. It's really effective. Well, Dr. Pimsleur's method works for both the young and the old. Now, I YEARN TO LEARN MORE!"
          --Leah Nillas, Quezon City, Philippines

"Top-quality teach-yourself Japanese, no reading involved. LEARNING LANGUAGES WAS NEVER THIS MUCH FUN...I would recommend this to all who would like to begin their study of the Japanese language...the Pimsleur method is very easy to learn from, hear and repeat."
          --Christopher Muro, Pittsburgh, PA

"Very quick start to German. These tapes allow you to learn as quickly or slowly as you like. Also, the way that it is presented allowed me to retain the skills much longer than I was able to using book or book-and-tape methods. Perhaps most importantly, by learning aurally and practicing orally I DEVELOPED VERY GOOD PRONUNCIATION."
          --Damien Del Russo, Dusseldorf, Germany
