Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

Get ready to dive into Italian! I love the MP3 downloads to the iPhone and iPad so I never miss a lesson. And I can repeat the lesson as often as I need to in order to solidify the concepts. Lessons 1-5 are fantastic. I know this is supposed to be a review for units 1-5 only, but once you get started with the lessons they are addictive and I am going to share some of my opinions on the other units as well... I am in unit 14 and finding that I wish they would slow down some of the newer vowel and consonant sounds so I can hear them and learn them. I don't need too much help with La - but I need to help with trying to pronounce euro - never mind degli euro. My mouth isn't used to saying this so forming the words is rather frustrating (I am a perfectionist) and I really wish they would still break the word down into the syllables as presented in unit 1.

Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

I usually learn better with a book - I'm very visual. But this program works without a book! It's crazy!

I found this program by being referred from the Little Pim site. My daughter LOVES Little Pim and is learning Italian through the videos and flash cards. In fact, we all love it and are learning it. So naturally I sought out Pimsleur for adult language learning. I was disappointed to not find a lot of text books. But I dl the free unit and tried it. I listened to it about 3 times before I realized it was really working! I immediately bought the first phase (Units 1-5). What I like most is the app that keeps track of what I played last, and the fact that I can use it anywhere. My phone, my tablet, my computer, my car, etc. I listen while I do dishes. I listen while I mow the lawn. And we all listen in the car. Great for a family raising the kids bilingual - as they hear it throughout the day directly from the teaching tapes. Love it. Highly recommend it. Here I was a total skeptic - and I'm learning despite that fact.

Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 01-05:

It's been years since I've used my Italian and Pimsleur is not only helping me renew my acquaintance with the language, but the repetition is helping me work on my accent. I listen to it from my phone while on my daily walks, so it doesn't take time out of my day. I love it.

    I listen to this for 1/2 hour everyday. I love that you can practice using the language in each session because they practice conversation with you. This is great because I can do it at my own pace.
