The Pimsleur Course Manager App
The best way to learn a foreign language just got better, with this App designed to organize all of the audio files that make up a Pimsleur Language Programs Course into one seamless program that lets you focus on learning a language, not juggling digital downloads.
The Free App is for customers of pimsleurdigital.com that have previously purchased a downloadable course, and does not come with any Pimsleur lessons when you download it. You enter your pimsleurdigital.com user-id and password from the website into the App, and all courses in your account will be available for transfer to the App.
The Pimsleur Method is a scientifically proven method that works very well if you follow the recommended approach of listening to one 30 minute lesson a day in order. With the Pimsleur Course App you don’t have to worry about what lesson you are on, the App keeps track for you. Imagine not having to remember where in the middle of a lesson you had to stop unexpectedly.
The App greets you each time you turn it on with what lesson you should do next, or exactly where you stopped if it was mid-lesson, and a button that starts the audio at exactly the right place. No more fumbling with print-outs of the reading booklets – the App brings up the right page on your screen while playing the audio at the same time.
In addition, if you are in an area with weak Wi-Fi, the App can download as little of the course as you need for that day, or you can download it all at once if reception isn’t an issue. Best of all if you lose your connection, or have to stop downloading midway, the App will keep what you already downloaded. You start where you left off.
This new version of the Pimsleur Course Manager (1.4.0) has a new and huge improvement over the previous version: Audio controls on your devices lock screen.
This allows you to pause, play and skip forward and back in the lesson when the lock screen is engaged on your device.
This new feature allows the app to work with the audio controls found on the steering wheel of most new cars and trucks and also with bluetooth audio streaming.
