      "Good learning method, annoying verbalization"

      I found the Michel Thomas method for teaching Italian to be more effective than other methods I have tried. However, I can only listen to this for a few minutes at a time, as I find the constant "chewing and smacking" noises made by Michel Thomas extremely annoying. The book would be more effective if those noises could be edited out.

      "Surprisingly Effective"

      Surprisingly effective, although I would worry that the style of teaching is limited; Michael Thomas says things like 'posso' = I can, but this might mean that one has trouble with any verb / noun that he hasn't explicitly taught you. I also don't think the level is particularly high, but it must be good if you have never encountered the language before.
