        Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

        I use Pimsleur Italian in the car. My usual drive is less than one full lesson, but I tend to go through it two times anyway, and the overlap works well for me.

        Some of the 'call-and-respond' portions at the end of the lesson have a subtle bit of humor to them, and I like that. It's fun.

        The reading portion does not fit with the lesson directly, but it does give one a chance to see the way words are written and pronounced, they are short, and I think useful. At the very least, I have more confidence when at an Italian restaurant (here in the States).

        I suspect no one product can provide a full experience. I am also using DuoLingo to learn Italian, and the approach there is different and so far, complimentary. Pimsleur, especially in the car, is pure audio and works for me.

        I am learning Italian just for fun. I plan to continue buying the Pimsleur product. I think the cost is appropriate for the product, and would not like to see it become much more complicated.

        Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

        I have never had much success or been able to "stick to it" with language learning. At 50 I thought I was too old to learn even a little bit of a foreign language. But this system teaches you to learn how to hear and speak a language first rather than read it and for me this has been fun and exciting. It's not a "video game" and uses lots of repetition but for me it is helping the language to "stick". I am pausing the audio often but by the time I finish each lesson I feel I am succeeding!

        Comments about Italian Phase 1, Unit 11-15:

        I listen in the car whenever I have at least 30 minutes. Sometimes the responses come too quickly to hear clearly or to even repeat it but I know the process, as I have used this system previously. It does help on a 30,000 foot level but I would like to have more advanced "tense" and "person" instruction. Everything is in first or third person. I was disappointed this time in that, by buying the download instead of discs, I am missing out on the reading lessons. This was NOT indicated when purchased and I would have liked to have the reading lessons, had I known
        All in all, for the casual traveler, this is a good system but doesn't get very deep in the language.

            I have been listening to the Pimsleur units while I drive and have learned very quickly. The repetition ensures success but not in a way that bores you. I recently returned from a trip to Italy and felt more comfortable that I could ask for directions and shop knowing my numbers. I will continue on in further units and I highly recommend this program.
