Great for learning Italian.

I have tried other language CDS but this really seems to work in my opinion.

a bit scary as he seems impatient

the further away I can get from insistent, shouty school teacher experience the better, Michel Thomas isn't it, maybe when I know more.

Different

It seems to be a different approach to traditional learning. No repetitions or learning by heart are suggested. The author sounds experienced and starts with samples right away, along with 2 other students. It does not sound well rehearsed but like a 'stand-up' language teaching. I like the way one is learning a few words and encouraged to build own sentences. That way it is not simple listening and repeating and the brain is challenged!

Doesn't work

Would you try another book written by Michel Thomas or narrated by Michel Thomas?

Can't write a review because I am unable to get it to play either on my Kindle or laptop. On the Kindle it says Kindle does not support this format,( it comes from Amazon for goodness sake!) On the laptop, even though it has been downloaded, it says problem connecting to server.
Glad I didn't have to pay for it!
