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 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.

This is my third Pimsleur language

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

Excellent course! I have used Pimsleur to teach myself Greek, German and Italian. Speak and repeat with no books is my requirement for learning while driving! What I like best is that you learn usage and sentences and develop an ear for the language. At the end of the segment they tell you what you have learned - like me, he, she, they. Once you learn it in the lesson, you can use it or hear it every day. It is a practical and fun way to learn a foreign language!

      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.
