  • "The best language audio course I've..."

    Overall

    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.

    Story

    Io e mio marito andiamo a Roma domani! This was an excellent way for me to work on learning some Italian while I take the dog for walks (there goes that crazy woman walking her dog and spouting random Italian words and phrases again) or commute to/from work. I found that it worked best for me to listen to a unit a couple of times before moving on. I also had a dictionary to check the spelling and conjugations because at times it was difficult to tell what they were saying. For example, I thought they were saying "abesso" for now and it was really "adesso". I feel like the method is excellent and that I know enough to speak to desk clerks at hotels or train stations, ask for directions, and say that I would like some wine (Vorrei bere di'l vino). Grazie Mille Pimsleur! Ciao!

    The four tours were terrific. I loaded them into my iPod, and my wife and I each listened through one of the ear buds as we slowly strolled, arm and arm through Florence.
    The author sprinkles some interesting history and folklore into each tour. Be sure to take copies of the accompanying maps, to help navigate through some of the trickier routes.
