We are preparing for a trip to Italy and I wanted to get some familiarity with the language. The older I get, the harder learning a new language seems to be. I am totally amazed at how comfortable I am becoming with simple conversations. I am enjoying learning Italian, and find this instruction to be totally non-threatening and interesting. The approach challenges me to think in the language in a new way - it isn't just listen and repeat - it engages you in a conversation. There is a very appropriate amount of review and recall, but you can't get bored because new words and conversations keep occurring. This course is comparable to, or maybe even better than, having a live instructor! Now that I've found Pimsleur, I hope to be able to explore more languages, too.
This was a Great buy! Be sure to print the maps before you go.
Interesting, informative and clear.
Definitely took us places we would have missed.
they say allow 2 hours per walk, but you will need a lot more time that that. They take you into churches and museums so be sure to go early as the museums close early. Really enjoyed it.
