What You’ll Learn
This program includes all of Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

With this program you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progress to a high-intermediate level of speaking and understanding. By Level 5 the pace and conversation moves quite rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures, approaching native speed and comprehension. You’ll learn to speak more in-depth about your personal life and emotional state, and be able to create complex sentences using a mix of tenses and moods. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak.

At the completion of this course, you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the language and culture with a deepening insight into a new world.

Reading Lessons are included for each level. In Level 1, you'll learn to sound out words then phrases and sentences. In Levels 2 through 5, you'll continue to practice reading, improve your pronunciation, and learn new vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker.

Learning the sound of each letter alone and in culturally distinct combinations allows your brain to process what you’re hearing in the audio lessons from a new and different perspective. It’s a powerful combination that makes Pimsleur different from every other method on the market.

Review on Your Terms
Reinforce what you’ve learned quickly and effectively with flash cards. Created to help you practice the most-essential vocabulary, the cards contain words and short phrases from the daily audio lessons. The Quick Match interactive phrase game will help you to challenge yourself with longer phrases and sentences in a fun and fast-paced way. Brush up, or dive deep — it’s all up to you.

Expand Your Horizons. Reconnect with Your Heritage. Travel with Confidence.
Experience language learning like never before. Pimsleur Unlimited: easy, engaging, and fun.

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 Pimsleur Italian Levels 1-5 Unlimited Software:

    Let's start with this: is my second experience with Pimsleur product. A few years back I bought the French series on CD to brush up before a 10 day trip to Quebec City, Canada. I studied French for several years in college and three years in high school--persistent, I was, but I think it was more about the cute girls in French class than the language. Nevertheless, I apparently learned something because the Pimsleur course provided a superbly managed refresher. I truly went to Quebec (sans a good understanding of Quebecois) feeling pretty confident I could handle any major French situation I might be faced with... amd apparently I had a few people convinced I could actually speak sufficient French for them to watch what they said. So more recently I purchased the 5 unit Italian series. I lived in Italy for three years and I have to say Pimsleur quickly resurrected another sleeping language locked away in my poor cervello. I've been working with it for the last four weeks in preparation for a trip to Italy. Once again, I feel quite confident that I can manage in an conversational situation where there aren't any English speakers. The only negative comment I have is that I want them to add about 5 more seconds to respond to the interactive dialogues. I find I'm often half way through a response when the speakers in the lesson interrupt me. It takes some of us a few more seconds to formulate our thoughts and say them out loud. Best time to use: in the car when going to work! Bottomline: Pimsleur's a truly superior method to quickly master the typical conversational aspects of any language! Love it--really!

      Comments about Pimsleur Italian Levels 1-5 Unlimited Software:

      I've tried Rosetta Stone, intensive immersion, and college courses in languages. Pimsleur has a faster result (even for vocabulary). The manner of presenting structure makes it possible to learn to form phrases quickly. The velocemente of the speakers is a necessity in every attempt to comprehend a new language and the speakers in Pimsleur are the best - rapid, but understandable.

      I ordered online, so yes, it was immediate.
