For at least intermediate students of Italian

Very good supplement to your studies of the italian language. I spend quite a bit of time in my car for work related travel. Most of my language study is done with audio. I enjoyed this very much and hope he expands this series.

Very helpful

I repeatedly listen to this at night. I have found it to be a great review of language basics (upper beginner/lower intermediate) as well as straightforward clarification of some areas that can seem complex. Nice voice and easy-going attitude make it a pleasant listen and less intimidating. There are not many resources for the intermediate level. I think this is an excellent option. Advanced learners would find this a good overall review. Highly recommend.

A hidden gem for learning intermediate Italian.

Due to the personal recommendation by the author, I found this wonderful resource for learning Italian at the intermediate level. The native language narrators are top notch and the material is just what I needed to increase my vocabulary and understanding. In fact, this is really three books in one:

1) A dozen short stories are included in the accompanying PDF guide in order to increase your vocabulary and reading comprehension.

2) There is a great concise grammar guide to explain how to structure sentences in Italian. Finally I understand how to use direct and indirect personal pronouns in Italian.

3) The main narrative covers a lot of useful words and expressions missed in Pimsleur Italian (I listened to all 5 levels). Like Pimsleur, the material is repeated at precise intervals in order to automatically memorize the material.

If you are like me, and are a serious student of Italian, this fantastic audiobook should really help you achieve your goal if achieving fluency in Italian.
