Italian on your schedule

I wish there were spellings of the words that we learn in each lesson along with the reading practice. Sometimes it is hard to tell if I am picking up the pronunciation properly. Seeing it in writing helps

Great course, but PDF in zip file will not open

Where does Italian Phase 1, Unit 16-20 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First audio book, got app and downloads fine. Course is very good. BUT the reader refuses to open on iPad or ms surface. I have adobe reader, I open many other PDFs, I can open on a laptop fine and emailed to iPad but this will not open. It wants to save to one drive, which I have, but when I click to open it asks to open in another programme, drop box, which I try, but it will not open.

Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrator?

Yes

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cry when I can't remember the words, I laugh when I can.

Any additional comments?
