By listening to these specially composed melodies with their rhythmic repetitions of Italian and English a few times, you pick up over 200 essential words and phrases that will not just be on the tip of your tongue, but will be burned deeply into your long-term memory in next to no time.

This lesson is very short (1h:10m) and it would be great for someone that wants to say that they are learning Italian before they go to Italy but they really don’t want to put any work into it. The background music is fun at first but it interferes with hearing the correct pronunciation. After listening to this disk I listened to Pimsleur Quick & Simple Italian for English Speakers (03h:42m) and I kept saying to myself “Oh so that’s how you pronounce that word.” This lesson will teach you just about enough Italian to embarrass yourself when you get to Italy.
