Good follow up but needs a bit of work

I've found this series really useful and this book continues to impress me.

The one hang up I have is to do with the pronunciation from the Italian speaker. Although she is mostly clear, she needs to work on her vowels, often the crucial difference between the 'o's. 'a''s and 'e's is slightly blurred which makes it hard to get things correct.

I would still recommend this book other learners and think Paul's approach really suits English folk like me who were taught grammar and languages so badly at school. His method focuses on getting you speaking Italian and letting you get to know the rules organically.

Excellent addition to the original series

I was a big fan of the original series, as Paul teaches in a way which is accessible, not intimidating and extremely useful as he unlocks conversational Italian that can be used in everyday life immediately. I now live in Italy and use this book alongside my face-to-face Italian lessons, it's amazing the depth of the content that this book covers, especially given its simple approach. I would highly recommend this book, but you MUST cover the first three as this book very much follows on from those. A++

Great method but the booklet is useless

I think the audio lessons are great. I purchased the first three and was really looking forward to this Next Step. I learn best when I can reinforce what I hear with reading and writing ... the booklet (PDF) is useless (very little content for a 7 hour course)!
