The daughter of esteemed linguist and language-learning expert Dr. Paul Pimsleur, Julia Pimsleur Levine grew up in a bilingual French English home. When she began to teach her young son French, she discovered a dearth of high-quality learning materials and began to fill the gap in the market with her own skills as a filmmaker, teacher, and mom. Pimsleur Levine teamed up with experts ranging from neuroscientists to top educators to develop a line of DVDs, apps, flash cards, and books that help kids master a new language with interactive methods and proven repetition techniques—all through adorable panda-guided entertainment. Little Pim's language learning tools have garnered numerous awards, including Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products of 2012, the National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval for many products, and a Tillywig Toy Awards Brain Child award.
Each DVD completely immerses children in a foreign tongue, ensuring they retain a robust vocabulary and hear real native accents. Kids study and play with easily accessible learning materials in languages such as Spanish, German, Russian, Chinese, and Hebrew, opening up bright futures and new opportunities whether or not they grow to be jet-setting entrepreneurs and diplomats.
