Setting the standard for 80 years.
The Assimil brand was created exactly 80 years ago with its first method, "L'Anglais Sans Peine", for learning English.
Assimil pioneered self-study language methods in France and is now a household name for foreign-language learning. Assimil offers a new way to learn: an original and effective method based on the principle of intuitive assimilation - a world first.
From the outset, Assimil's methods proved highly popular. The first sentence of "L'Anglais Sans Peine" - My tailor is rich - has become a catchphrase in France.
A method that works
Students learn a language in its linguistic and cultural context, while focusing on oral communication. What better proof of success than the sale of millions of self-study methods since 1929? To date, more than 35 million people around the world have learned or are learning a language with Assimil.
Assimil has continuously updated its self-study methods, but its main focus is on expanding the catalogue. More than 100 offerings are now available, from European and regional languages to the most "exotic" languages. Over the years, Assimil has adapted to new media, from 78 rpm vinyl records to MP3, and is ready for exciting new developments in the 21st century, such as e-learning.
