If you're looking for the reading material...

Any additional comments?

I was confused about where to find the reading material that is referenced in these lessons, so I thought others might be, too. Here are the instructions from Audible to find them:

"You will be able to find the accompanying material 'PDF' link underneath the book title in the 'Library' section of the website. Please click on the following link to access the 'Library' section: http://www.audible.com/lib "

Hope that helps someone!

Limited Vocab/ Better With Frobose

Any additional comments?

I used to think that Pimsleur was the king of memory techniques.
I am now think that Frobose language programs like the Power Italian series has an even better memory technique, but that’s an open debate.
I have successfully used Pimsleur’s Spanish, French, and now Italian programs and I have to say that they really do work. And Pimsleur Italian will definitely teach you some Italian and make it stick. No easy task. Good for them.
However, Pimsleur has a real problem with limited vocabulary. They teach you in a box, and the box is small. No creativity, limited vocabulary. Their greatest asset is their memory technique.
I think if you were to combine Pimsleur Italian with Learn in Your Car Italian and definitely Power Italian you would have a winning combo.

What about reading part?

I really like this couse - very practical and easy to remember. But the thing is from chapter 8, it contains reading part whereas there is no material for reading.. Dont understand.. I used the free credit for this audio book but if I had bought this I would have been so upset.

Great learning tool

I never get bored with this program. I've learned and retained more with this program than any other. I actually WANT TO KEEP GOING!

This guy won’t take “no” for an answer

The lessons are good. They go a little too fast so I had to slow down the play back to .75 speed on my phone to grasp the words being said. The segment with the guy incessantly asking the woman out for a drink is a little bit creepy and actually made me uncomfortable. How do you say, “Leave me the $&@# alone!!” in Italian. LOL!

Otherwise it is a very good learning tool!

Need to rewrite script for lesson 9

Very helpful with lots of repetition. My only complaint is lesson 9, which sounds like an awkward date rape scene.

needs more accompanying reading

there isn't enough included reading to go along with the course at times it's tough to understand the speaker.

Va bene...

Getting the basics. Since it is not interactive it is difficult to tell if I am saying the words with the correct pronounciation, but it's quite fun.

Looking forward to Milan in April 2019

Feeling confident in the understanding and pronounciation of many words, phrases and iterations. This will help with business and tourist interactions.
