    The audible lessons are the best I have ever used, and I am learning quickly to speak Italian, but I have been unable to download the reading materials, and audible customer support has not been able to help me.

    "Amazing."

    Story
    Where does Italian Phase 1, Units 1-30 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has been my first encounter with Pimsleur's method of learning languages and I must say I am AMAZED. I go throug one lesson led per day (that is 30 minutes) and it's like my brain is memorizing EVERYTHING without me even trying to do so. What kept me even more motivated was seeing my progress. Since Lesson 1 the audiobook guides you through Italian in such a way that you are instantly asked to formulate sentences on your own with the words you've learned on so you do feel like you are actually speaking the language. This is so motivating. And whenever I'm in Italy, I can see that with each trip/lesson I can say more and more. Can't recommend this method enough. Oh, and no boring grammar questions. It feels more like speaking your native language (you know uoi're saying it right, you're not really sure though what the rules behind it are) than a newly acquired, awkward book foreign language. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    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.
