While we have no relationship with or endorsement from either Simon and Schuster or Paul Pimsleur, our products do take into consideration the findings of Paul Pimsleur's 1967 article in the journal "Modern Language Journal", entitled "a memory schedule", upon which Simon and Schuster's programs appear to us to be based. We also take into account assorted findings of the four decades of study of the psychology of memory since that article and findings of our own.
