The Complete Idiot's Guide language audio programs are guaranteed to work for beginners, as a refresher course, and even with those who have been frustrated in other attempts to learn a foreign language. You can start learning today.
This is simply a vocabulary learning tool for those who like to memorize by rote. An English-speaking person says an English word, then a native Italian speaker says the Italian translation. There is very, very soft accordion music in the background playing Italian songs. There are two native Italian speakers who alternate every 10 or 15 words.

I suppose if you buy the other books in this series this last installment might be useful...maybe. But it is quite literally a reading of a vocabulary. There are four installments, I suppose according to the chapters in another book? Hard to tell since this is the only one I bought. But as a stand alone audiobook it is virtually useless. E.g. "plate." "il plato." etc. very odd.
