Great learning tool for intermediate students

I just finished Pimsleur Italian 5. Now what? I still can't understand Italian newspapers or TV (e.g. RAI) all that well. So what should I do? Most other Italian learning audio books on Audible are way too basic for me, so this book represents one of the few offerings aimed at students like me.

One recommendation I would like to give fellow readers of this wonderful resource is to first read the material BEFORE listening to it. In my experience, this really accelerates the learning process. In addition, I would recommend listening to each passage multiple times to transfer the material from short-term memory to your long-term memory. Finally, I would recommend that you pause and read the passage out loud. This too helps you remember the material.

One last thing I would like for Audible listeners to know is that the publishers of this book really help me out and responded within minutes when I emailed them with a question.

To summarize, great recordings, advanced content, and fantastic support. What more could you ask for?

Top-notched narration

I loved this concept of learning through story-telling. The narrator's voice reminds me of why I love spoken Italian so much.

Educative and fun.

This book is aimed at intermediate learners and it assumes some familiarity with common Italian words, phrases and verb conjugation. However, the next phase of merging all these things into seamless conversation is emphasized here. It is a very educative book, which is designed with a very convenient storytelling approach. This makes this book more than just an educational/learning piece, but also quite fun.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Excellent content, just as required.

This book is great for learning Italian. As with many things learnt via stories, the lessons included in this book are hard to forget. The plan is to teach new Italian vocabulary through various story contexts or scenarios. It is quite an effective method and works even better by studying the attached material.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and I have left this review in return.

Great work.

Commendations to the author for presenting this book in a vigorously structured curriculum. The structure makes the lessons easy to index and follow through. The narration, being a key part of the lessons teach the esoteric Italian accent which is popular.

The Italian accent

There is just something about the Italian accent, or any foreign accent really. As comes with the mastery of a language, accent is a key factor. I think this book is a great way to improve a beginner's proficiency in the Italian accent, as the listener only needs to pause the lesson and rewind (if needed). The narrator speaks in a native tongue and a mild tone, and this is also good for listening.
