  • "Pleasant to listen the tutors. Amaz..."

    Overall

    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.

    Specially written to be used on the move and to be stopped and started with ease, this series is ideal for use on the train, in the car, or around the house - in fact anywhere, any time. By the end of this 4-hour, all audio course, the student will have a working vocabulary of some 400 essential words and phrases and will feel confident about speaking (and understanding!) Italian.

    Story

    It seems to be a different approach to traditional learning. No repetitions or learning by heart are suggested. The author sounds experienced and starts with samples right away, along with 2 other students. It does not sound well rehearsed but like a 'stand-up' language teaching. I like the way one is learning a few words and encouraged to build own sentences. That way it is not simple listening and repeating and the brain is challenged!

  • "Enjoyable to learn Italian"

    1 of 1 helpful votes

    Soon I will go on a holiday to Italy, and the only word I already know in Italian is "Ciao!", which won't get me far. I have always been a bit reserved in acquiring language learning materials, as most are complex and boring, but this book is the very opposite in my opinion and I am looking forward to beginning on book 2!

    I like Noble's voice, and the way he explains things in a straight forward way. The pauses you get to repeat the sentences and words are perfect - not too short, and not too long - and the italian voice is also soothing and easy to listen to. There are plenty of repetitions, but I don't mind it. Besides, this is done deliberately, to make you remember more easily, and as time progresses you come back to what you have learned earlier on.

    I'm a complete beginner so I found Paul Noble's book very easy and fun to use. I would recommend this for anyone who wants a basic understanding of the Italian language.
