very bad

They perform very, very bad. Horrible accent. No time to repeat sentences. Very chaotic. I advise against buying it if you haven't money to burn.

Great if you want to learn about grammar

This book is made up of lots of short chapters, each one of which starts with a short conversation which is then broken down. The conversations are useful, and the listener is introduced to a few new words each time. However, there is then a very heavy grammar lesson at the end of each conversation, which talks in great detail about past imperfect tense and subordinate conjunctives etc. As I just want to learn Italian so I can get by while on holiday there, I felt this was completely irrelevant and very boring. I have also downloaded a Paul Noble audio book to learn Italian which was so much better.
