I have wanted to learn Italian for a few years now. I have tried a number of books and I could never seem to get past badly mispronouncing "Hello" and "How are you?" I finally decided to try the Pimsleur cds. I must say that the Pimsleur programs comes in a convienent format. I am able to listen to the audio on my daily commute to work and back up the audio on my Ipod so that I can listen during my spare time. In the last few weeks alone, I was able to pick up considerably more Italian than I ever did on my own. It was helpful to listen to the pronounciation of the words and to listen to Italian in action. The only issue that I have is that I wish there was a list of vocab words for each section. There were a couple of instances where I thought that they were pronouncing a word one way, but it was spelled slightly differently than I would have expected. I have taken to keeping a notepad nearby when I listen to the pimsleur audio so that I could write down the words and look them up afterwards to make sure I was spelling them correctly.
