Pimsleur – MEGA PACK – 48 languages + extra (audio+pdf) (Update 2016)
"The Pimsleur language learning system (also known as the Pimsleur method or Pimsleur approach) is a language acquisition method developed by Paul Pimsleur. The system is based on four main ideas: anticipation, graduated interval recall, core vocabulary, and organic learning.
The Pimsleur method is an audio-based system, in which the listener constructs phrases or repeats from memory along with a recording. The program literature stresses that a student learns through active participation versus passive "listen and repeat only" rote memorization. A series of audiobooks based on the Pimsleur method has been developed by Pimsleur Language Programs and published by Simon & Schuster. The system, as currently packaged by Simon & Schuster, is made up of multiple 30-minute audio lessons delivered on tapes, CDs, SD cards, and as digital downloads. The Pimsleur website claims that because the lessons repeat themselves and add new material, they do not demand 100% mastery before moving on. Pimsleur courses focus on proficiency in speaking instead of reading proficiency."
-The student listens to a recording on which native speakers speak phrases in both the foreign language and the language used for teaching (usually English).
-At varying intervals, the student is prompted to repeat a phrase after the speaker finishes it
-The student is then introduced to a new phrase and the meaning is explained.
-After repeating several times, the student is asked to repeat a previous phrase, along with integrating vocabulary from the new one.
-More new phrases are introduced, while old phrases are prompted at ever-increasing intervals.

Audio (mp3) + ebooks (pdf)
a) This pack includes every Pimsleur torrent content that i could find on the internet.
b) I picked out myself the best quality audio files from all the available packs.
c) There are still some bad quality audios which i couldn’t find any better to replace with.
d) There are some missing lessons that i couldn’t find anywhere.
e) It was a big mess with file names, all the torrent packs. So i come up with a standard and renamed them all to prevent a storm of confusion in the future.
If you have previously downloaded Pimsleur language packs, you will have to download them all over again, but i believe that in a long-term it will pay back.
f) All the credit goes to other uploaders who did share these packs online. For myself, well, I did collect this pack for myself and i love to share it with others, that’s all the credit i need.
