Pimsleur Fitness Program!

<p>
I'm not quite sure how this plan will go, but at present I am intending to use Pimsleur to walk my way through the winter. I want to language-learn myself back into shape!</p>
<p>
I did it in 2009 and I can do it again.</p>
<p>
As I have reported about five billion times, I love love love Pimsleur. It is my favorite language-learning system of all time. They have products for over 50 languages, and I have made my way through about 22.&nbsp;</p>
<p>
Or is it 23?</p>

I would have to doublecheck, but in any case there are lots left. Plus more lessons have been made for Mandarin and Japanese and Modern Standard Arabic since I did those the first time.</p>
<p>
They do not pay me to say this. I'm like a stalker.</p>
<p>
Today on a long walk I finished the last of Pimsleur's 30 half-hour Ukrainian lessons. I love the consonants. My Ukrainian vowels are not quite as well-formed, but I have hope for the future.</p>
<p>
Next are their Turkish lessons. I'm already on the fourth lesson of 30. I also took a nap in the early evening to Vietnamese lesson 1 and Urdu lesson 1.</p>
<p>
It's really very relaxing. I want a better sense of the sounds of the language-learning universe. There are too many languages left that are totally, completely unfamiliar to me -- ones that are spoken by millions and millions of people, too! That bothers me.</p>
<p>
Back at the office, I have recently realphabetized and reorganized my language-learning bookshelves from Albanian to Zulu. I have studied neither of those book-ending languages! But Pimsleur has 30 Albanian lessons, so I will get a bit learned on my walks if all goes as planned.</p>
<p>
Other languages ahead for my Pimsleur Fitness Program: Croatian, Icelandic, Cantonese, Swahili, Tagalog, Thai, Romanian, Finnish. Thirty lessons available for each.</p>

Armenian, both Eastern and Western.</p>
<p>
Lithuanian.</p>
<p>
Ojibwe.</p>
<p>
The thought literally makes me salivate. I am not kidding. It's like someone just put a chocolate fountain and a plate of fresh strawberries in front of me.</p>
<p>
I am going to post on Facebook to see if I'm the only one. I'm sure I'm not. Some of those polyglots are crazy!</p>
<p>
If something goes wrong during my Pimsleur Fitness Program, I hope someone will call 911. If something goes right, I will enjoy myself terribly and end up with a smaller butt.</p>
