Pimsleur, the language method designed by Dr. Paul Pimsleur and now published by Simon and Schuster, is one of the most sought-after language tools for the independent language learner. It is also known for being quite expensive. If you paid retail price for 3 levels of Pimsleur Comprehensive, it would cost over $1000. But with a few little tricks, you can reduce that cost to you by a significant amount, and still get one of the best language methods.
Shop Around. Pimsleur prices can vary wildly. If you are willing to spend the time, you can probably find a more competitive price. There is no shortage of merchants selling Pimsleur language learning products on the internet.
Buy Used. There are lots of opportunities to buy stuff used. Don’t worry that if you are buying used that you are somehow not getting a product that’s as good as a new one. As long as it works – that’s all you really need.
