The Pimsleur® Method is scientifically proven to be your fastest route to near-native fluency. Italian Level 3 includes another 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction and is designed to be used after completion of levels 1 and 2.
The beginning lessons of level 3 offer you the chance to expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency to an even higher level. You'll gain experience participating in many informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and semiprofessional topics. You'll skillfully form longer, more complex sentences, and, most importantly, you'll find yourself being understood, even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners. You'll be able to join in conversations effortlessly, confident of being understood.
In the next 10 lessons of level 3, your skills will show ever-increasing mastery of the language. Speaking with grace and complete naturalness, you'll enjoy fluid conversations on many new subjects. Delving deeper into cultural norms and situations, you'll find yourself responding effortlessly and able to choose from a wide accumulation of vocabulary and structures.
In the final 10 lessons of level 3, you're nearing fluency with agile responses and a natural-sounding, near-native accent. You're able to utilize the language in subtle ways and speak using past, present, and future tenses. Self-confidence soars as you experience the language and culture no longer as a foreigner but with a deepening insight into an expanding new world.
Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Italian and to provide vocabulary. Before you know it, you'll be reading Italian with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)

Fantastic Program to give one confidence to speak. Best used in concert with a more standard course.
Audible have attached the incorrect PDF lesson notes. Customer service no help. Annoying.
I think that the best part of learning with pimsleur is the fact that you can go to half speed when it's difficult and at triple speed when to test myself.
yes, best language course out there
yes, all are good.
Italian in no time
