Great method but the booklet is useless

I think the audio lessons are great. I purchased the first three and was really looking forward to this Next Step. I learn best when I can reinforce what I hear with reading and writing ... the booklet (PDF) is useless (very little content for a 7 hour course)!

Good follow up but needs a bit of work

I've found this series really useful and this book continues to impress me.

The one hang up I have is to do with the pronunciation from the Italian speaker. Although she is mostly clear, she needs to work on her vowels, often the crucial difference between the 'o's. 'a''s and 'e's is slightly blurred which makes it hard to get things correct.

I would still recommend this book other learners and think Paul's approach really suits English folk like me who were taught grammar and languages so badly at school. His method focuses on getting you speaking Italian and letting you get to know the rules organically.

Amazing learning like always with Paul Noble

Paul Is the person to look to when one thing to learn a new language (from those available from him). No with the Next Steps extension one becomes much much better equipped on what I would call a level one and two combined (for Increased fluency I then proceed with Pimsleur, normally starting at Level 2 - until level 3 normally existing here at Audible at a convenient price)
Let me say this: Paul Nobel is unmissable and irreplaceable by any other method I have heard of. This is like a private tutor teaching you the fundamentals of the language in a oral, permanent dialogue, context. You will not only start speaking, you will also apprehend all the gramar almost without noticing it!!!
I am fluent in PT and EN, and by now have revised my French with Paul and fully learned Spanish with Paul + Pimsleur, to finally have just finished the two audiobooks by Paul in Italian (will proceed in this with Pimsleur). It is amazing to see our excellent progress as we go through the dialogues to test our learning at the final part of each audiobook. What are you waiting for to learn languages in a matter of some weeks. Look no further and above all ... hurry up and start!!!!

Excellent addition to the original series

I was a big fan of the original series, as Paul teaches in a way which is accessible, not intimidating and extremely useful as he unlocks conversational Italian that can be used in everyday life immediately. I now live in Italy and use this book alongside my face-to-face Italian lessons, it's amazing the depth of the content that this book covers, especially given its simple approach. I would highly recommend this book, but you MUST cover the first three as this book very much follows on from those. A++

Waste of Money If You Did Previous Courses

I was sorely disappointed with this course. I completed the first four courses, which was reasonable, but found that this course essentially repeated the same material, with a small amount of new material near the end. There are far better and engaging materials online, Based on experience, this course will not at all prepare you for a trip to Italy. I thought it would be a good refresher but was mislead by the Next Steps title. Poor effort Mr Noble.

Easiest way to learn Italian

I’ve tried a few apps and books and Paul is the best for helping you to remember everything well after you’ve learnt it. Especially how plurals, masculine feminine etc. I wish there was another book following this.
