I found that Collins Italian has many creative and varied ways to approach Italian. I really liked it. It covered parts of conjugation that no other audio recordings did. It's very thorough and intense. It was one of my favorite audios.
Helping me through various aspects of the language I didn't quite understand and making it clear.
I have purchased all of Pimslers Italian Audio instructional language series and have found it very helpful. Series 2 is important in building a foundation of Italian.
I really like the Rapid Italian series; you could potentially go to Italy and successfully maneuver your way through the country with only hearing this. But, It is a great supplement to language school or more formal Italian lessons. Nonetheless, the format somehow seems the imbed words in your brain that seem to stay in your long term memory.
Yes. It's very helpful.
I think that this is a great supplement to other audio language learning approaches.
