I've been listening to the CD and can't express how disappointed I am. The 'Italian speakers' sound American, and when they don't, they never say things slowly and clearly. Learning exclusively through dialogue feels unproductive to me, as you don't always know which part of the sentence means what. The 'learn in Your Car' series is far better in my opinion. It's better organized, all of the words are clearly spoken with a native accent, and you learn each word individually, as well as how to use them. In addition, one doesn't really need to hear 'Good Job, You're doing great' after each chapter, or the preface of 'You'll certainly want to know what these people are saying, and it's easy, just listen and repeat' every time. Repetition is wonderful when attempting to learn a new language, but I think the emphasis was placed on the wrong things. I wish I had not purchased this set.Was this review helpful?
