Not suited to audiobook format

Like other "for Dummies" books, this is a helpful introduction, and it would be handy to carry around as a paperback so you could look up words or phrases when you need them. If you're trying to learn Italian, though, it's not much help, since all it does is repeat a word or phrase a couple of times and then move on, as if you could learn all the words in a dictionary just by hearing someone read them out loud to you. If you really want to learn Italian, Quickstart Italian is good for acquiring a basic tourist vocabulary. Pimsleur's Italian, which I'm using now, is for really learning to speak the language.

Clear, Slow Word Builder<br />

Program is not going to have us speaking fluent Italian, but it is very good being a slow very clear Italian word builder added to a more broad Italian language program.
