      I have finished phase one.
      Just the right pace...challenges you but it is workable pace.
      Solid program to get the words and concepts in front of you at the right intervals.

        Comments about Pimsleur Italian Unlimited 1-3:

        I had purchased and started the Pimsleur French I CD set several years ago but regretfully, didn't stay with it. Since my Dad's side of the family are all from Italy, I figured I would have more motivation to learn the language of my forefathers.

        The Italian Unlimited system is awesome. It is more than just listening and repeating, because I can "interact" with the system through flashcard and phrase recognition parts of the program.

        Instead of dreading that I have a lesson to do each day, I actually look forward to it.
        Also, being able to see the daily words and phrases during the computer-interactive parts, helps me to pronounce words that are said too quickly or are too short to catch when listening only.

        That being said, one thing I would appreciate is if the speakers would slow down when just learning a new word or phrase. They do break up and slow down sometimes, but it always seems they do this for words that are very obvious, not the ones where it would be most helpful. I do like the fact that most of the native speakers talk at everyday speed, but let me hear it slowly at least once.

        Overall great course - I'm only on set I of III but compared to my experiences with the CD only courses, this is a vast improvement.

        Be aware, while it is possible to send the audio-only parts to your mp3 player for use anywhere, the computer-interaction activities seem to require internet access.

        Buona fortuna!

            Comments about Pimsleur Italian Unlimited 1-3:

            I have been using the course every day for about a month and I am very impressed with my progress. I am 27 lessons in and the instructions are becoming more and more in Italian, which is difficult to comprehend and then recall what I've learned so far. But, it's only a matter of time and practice until it is no longer an issue. I love how the material builds on itself and I can naturally recall words and phrases from many lessons back.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Now that I am on lesson 27 and the instructions are more and more in Italian, it would be nice to repeat the phrases more. Some of the longer instructions and responses are only spoken once, and I have to rewind four or five times to comprehend the string of words. The reading practice is helpful for pronunciation, but I don't find I am learning what any of the words mean, though maybe that's the point.

            Comments about Pimsleur Italian Unlimited 1-3:

            I started using this before I went to Italy this summer,it definitely helped me to have some basic conversations. When I got home I had to purchase further lessons because it stirred me to really want to learn more.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I would love it if this had a way to add the Flash Cards and reading to your iPad.
            I also think this could be improved by adding real reading practice, it's how we developed our English vocabulary and learned sentence structure. I have been looking for outside sources to read in Italian and from the US I am finding this a little difficult. Even short basic stories incorporating the words we are using in each lesson would be so useful.

            I have the software version, which I found very easy to install. I had tried CDs from the library before, but I don't do as much driving now so I went for software this time. I really like the lessons. It's easy to get started. The fact that the lessons are 30 minutes long makes them easy to fit in to my day. The reading lesson helps, too. It took me a couple of lessons to discover the flash cards. I think they will be a good tool for getting the words into my head. With Pimsleur I believe I'm on my way to learning Italian.
