The Italian Language
Italian is the official language of Italy and San Marino, and one of the official languages of Switzerland, Croatia, and Slovenia. Italian is spoken by about 58 million people in Italy, 24,000 in San Marino, 840,000 in Switzerland, another million in other European countries, and approximately 5 million in North and South America. Historically, Italian is a daughter language of Latin. Italian uses the Roman alphabet and the pronunciation of the language follows the spelling very closely.

I first downloaded the app on my IPhone which was just Lesson 1 but it was wonderful! I purchased lessons 1-5 from your website and downloaded them to my phone so I can listen on my drive to work. If the rest of the lessons are as informative as the first we'll be good! My only negative comment would be that they speak a little to fast for us to think and repeat but other than that, it's great. I have recommended it to others already.

    Comments about Pimsleur Italian Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

    I was a language teacher many years ago and always thought it was useless for language students to see written words before they could speak. Learn a language the way you learned your primary language. SIMPLE !! That is what your system does. I love it. I think the built in timed repetition or spaced repetition and questions and answers are brilliantly done and scientifically proven to work better than any traditional language learning. I have only worked on the first ten lessons and look forward to picking it up again and continuing when time permits. It's up to me now, you have done your part.

      To learn language basics when I travel to other countries. I practice in my car on the way to and from work so I use that time well! That is what is so perfect for me! I also feel it is important to challenge your mind esp as we age.

      Comments about Pimsleur Italian Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

      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 Pimsleur Italian Level 1 Lessons 1-5 MP3:

      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.
