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.

        Comments about Italian Phase 2, Unit 01-05:

        This review is specifically for Pimsleur's Italian Phase 2, units 01-05, but I have bought all the previous units, and plan to buy the remaining as I progress.

        I'm in my mid-50s. I don't have any real reason to learn Italian other than just wanting to. I don't know that I'll ever get to Italy. And don't know that I won't -- just that I have no immediate needs for learning Italian.

        This Pimsleur program is working great for me. I am also using DuoLingo on-line, watching Italian-language movies on NetFlix and other streaming and on-line sources. I've set my smart-phone language to Italian, and I look at (and sometimes decipher) Italian news stories on-line. Not quite total immersion, which would be the best way to learn, but every little bit helps.

        Pimsleur is my primary vocal-learning tool, and probably the best, most concise, learning tool of all that I am currently using. I like the format, bringing in new words while reminding you of words and phrases you've previously learned.

        I listen to the Pimsleur courses in the car. My average commute is about 20 minutes, so it is short of the typical 30-minute unit. I listen to the first 20 minutes on the way there, and then back-up a bit and listen to the last 20 minutes on the way home. Pimsleur suggests one unit a day "for best results" and also that you should be at about the 80% mark before moving on.

        I find that it works best for me to listen to any given unit 3 or 4 times before I feel comfortable moving on. Again, I have no set time-goal for learning Italian, and I also think I am past the 80% success mark before I move onto the next unit.

        Perhaps it's my age, or perhaps I'm just not that good at spoken language. It takes me several times through before I feel comfortable just saying some of the words. But then it really is fun, amazing to me, to find that I can actually start saying words that sound vaguely Italian.

        I am making respectable progress, and I recommend this program.
