Terrific

Any additional comments?

I find this method of teaching languages very helpful for anyone wishing to gain a basic vocabulary and confidence to make a trip abroad. I have downloaded both the french and Italian, and although I had a very rudimentary knowledge of both languages, these recordings gave me immense confidence to talk and ask and demand etc. when travelling abroad. It also clarified and SIMPLIFIED the use of verbs and tenses.It is a very simple and repetitive method, but is not boring and keeps you on your toes. I have over years tried many other well known teaching methods, but this one for me is the only only one that actually "sunk in". Still, horses for courses as they say!

Very impressive!

It will surprise you how much you have picked up by the end as long as you are listening regularly. Nice, straight forward format of book that definitely works to get you started in a new language. I definitely recommend if you are serious about learning a language.

Excellent course

Excellent course that provides a good basic grounding in Italian now all we need is for Paul to do the next course in the series so we get continuity of instruction.

A excellent way to learn Italian

I have learnt so much from this audiobook and would highly recommend that you purchase if you want to get started learning Italian. I'm surprised at how much I actually retained. An excellent audiobook.

Amazing way to learn the basics of Italian.

I really enjoyed this audio book to Learn Italian. Paul Noble teaches you in a way that over the course of the book everything seems to stick. this is coming from someone who has an awfull memory. I would highly recommend this to any beginners who find learning a language difficult through normal text books.

Excellent resource

I can recommend this course: it is well planned and it uses the latest techniques for effective language learning. I've tried others over the last ten years but non are as good as this one. It is easy to follow and to complete: once finished you will be in a very strong position to continue with your study of italian. it lays a good foundation based on the modal verbs and also introduces you easily to both past and future tenses. Language learning has never been easier! Highly recommended: I wish I'd found this course ten years ago.

Simply brilliant

This is the second time I've gone through Paul's Italian course. The first time was a couple of years ago and I didn't make it to Italy at that time but as a holiday in Tuscany is imminent it made sense to study again. I've enjoyed it even more this time round, perhaps with the added focus of knowing I'll be using the language for real soon. I feel quietly confident that I'll be able to converse to some degree and in fact probably more confident than I was last year using French - in which I have a much wider vocabulary. I have a modern Italian/English phrase book to take on holiday so will continue to expand my knowledge. I wish Paul would release a second-stage Italian course, perhaps featuring different scenarios to enable the same easy learning style with expansion of vocabulary. It's simply a terrific way to learn. Thank you Paul!

Updates Required

Very good program overall.
However, I don’t think many people camp anymore or reserve hotel rooms without a bathroom. The program should be updated to include airport situations and phone and texting scenarios.

Wish the conversations were a bit more varied

The learning method was great (though I find 1.5 x listening to sound more natural). The phrases and discussions seemed a little odd, but maybe it gets better with the “next” part of the series. Otherwise, pretty great!
