4.0 out of 5 stars Review of Berlitz Advanced Itlaian 30 Aug 2010
By January
Verified Purchase
This is a manual and 3 cd's. I haven't yet got too far with this set of lessons as there is quite a leap from Berlitz Intermediate Italian to Berlitz Advanced. The layout is more formal and the lessons are more grammar oriented. There is much more in the manual than for previous levels, possibly because the typography is smaller & there are fewer pictures. I prefer a spoken approach to language learning & so am not quite so keen on the amount of 'graft' in this book. As a back-up to other more verbal approaches though, it is very good even for me; with explanations & examples of usage. Excellent value for money as always with Berlitz & an excellent language learning set for those with a more academic brain who like to study & read & write. The cd's help with pronunciation & sound patterns of the language.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Italian learning 24 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
The exercises are varied with plenty repetition of new vocabulary and the dialogues. It has been a great help to learning Italian. For me it is in addition to a weekly class. But one class a week is not enough and I can do a little bit of this every day or so.

This is a well designed course that has a good balance between conversation skills and the grammar rules required to master the language. The content is good and easy to follow. We use this in a small group situation and find it supports our our learning very effectively.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value 28 Oct 2009
By Amadeus - Published on
Berltiz Advanced Italian is truly a great value at just $25. I really enjoyed the dialogues and the text was fantastic. The text introduces advanced grammar topics and expands vocabulary. I listened to all the dialogues, then learned all the vocab, then read through the grammar sections and finally returned to listen once again to the dialogues. I found this method to expand my knowledge of Italian. On the other side, I disliked the 2nd and 3rd CDs entirely. On these audio only lessons you spend a lot of time repeating spoken Italian or answering questions. The problem here is that the answer you give might be right but might not be what is recorded as the answer. Nonetheless, I highly recommend this program, for Advanced Learners Only!

2.0 out of 5 stars For intermediate, not advanced speakers 6 Dec 2010
By J. Fuchs - Published on
Verified Purchase
This isn't an advanced course by any stretch. You get some not very interesting dialogues (ordering in a restaurant, going to the doctor), which are spoken very slowly, and then the same dialogues repeated even more slowly. There are also grammar lessons in the book that aren't in-depth enough to teach the concepts (pronouns, commands, etc.) to someone just being introduced to them, but aren't challenging enough for an advanced student.

The dialogues are probably useful to intermediate students wanting some extra practice listening, and the course as a whole might be good for someone who spoke Italian well years ago and is trying to relearn it. For everyone else, this is mediocre at best. Living Language does advanced Italian much better.

2.0 out of 5 stars ridiculous waste of CD space 18 July 2010
By Maddalena - Published on
The speakers and the lessons on this are great. But they repeat entire lessons, obviously a cheap way to fill the CD. Anyone that has a CD player can replay any cut, so the "listen again to see if you made a mistake" is just fill.

Too bad. I really like the lessons; particularly the ones I can use in my car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good course 3 Feb 2012

It's right up there with Fluenz & Pimslure. It's a really good course & a very helpful customer service support. You can download to your iPod/ mp3 & take it with you to work, running or whatever. The price is very appealing also.

For me, learning a language requires a multi-faceted approach. This book and audio combination is a good complement to my on-line work and other books and audio.
