After various beginners Italian audio books, this is a refreshing change. The music used really helps with the rhythm of the words and phrases and finally an audio book that breaks words down slowly so you can make sure your pronunciation is correct.
I only get a chance to listen to audio books while driving so the opening lines of sit back and close your eyes probably wasn't a good start but it was still great to listen to while driving.
I'll be trying the other languages now.
This is my first Italian course. The narrators voices are great and pleasant to listen. Their British English is fascinating. I learned the basics of Italian and I am able to perform basic talks in various situations. I am however not fluent or anything like that but for the purpose of getting in to the Italian from the scratch it was a great guide. I would only suggest not to use the Italian singular formal "you" but I figured out the correct informal equivalent later and I just skipped their politeness. The tutors play and interact naturally which was crucial for me as I had a bad experience with Spanish by Michel Thomas. His smacking of lips and heavy breathing made me delete all lectures I purchased. Great book! Recommend.
