Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes - with Pimsleur it’s that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose. Italian Phase 1, Units 21-25 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation. Each lesson contains practice for vocabulary introduced in previous lessons. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak Italian. Some of these units contain Reading Lessons designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. 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)
"Still going strong!"
This is the fifth of six downloads in Unit 1. I have progressed from 'me' and 'you' to 'we' and 'ours'. A bit scary at first but the more I listened to the module, the more I calmed down and then I 'got it'. I still have to listen to each module six or eight times but I am holding the words. This is certainly the best way for me to learn. I listen going to and from work and sometimes at the weekend, I listen to each module all the way through the unit - a sort of roundup. In fact, that might be the only improvement I could suggest to Pimsleur, that they simply do a roundup, each phase once only, at the end of the unit. I am so pleased with what I have achieved - I am off to Italy for a holiday - to practise what I have learned!
