5.0 out of 5 stars Earworms Italian, 21 Jun. 2006
Even knowing how to say "hello" and "thank you" makes life more pleasant when travelling abroad - and the locals appreciate it. But is it really possible to learn a language the easy way? I've tried several teach yourself Italian audios and have always ground to a halt because they were too fast or too boring. Earworms gives you the Italian you are likely to need on holiday (with the tiniest hint of shoe fetishism thrown in) The slow pace and frequent repetitions allow you to really HEAR individual words and pronounce them correctly. The vocabulary does seep in, as promised. You suddenly realise that you can hire a car or ask for sticking plasters (which you'll need after buying all those shoes) without quite realising it is happening. It would also be useful for schoolkids and students taking Italian as an accent improver. I shall definitely get the second CD when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most art books are written for people who can already draw., 29 Jan. 2001
I was told at school that I was utterly useless at art, and for years felt this meant I was not 'allowed' to draw. Betty Edwards' wonderful book gave me the confidence to try again - and to dare to join a drawing class. Her book inspired me to want to know more about art and drawing. Most art books are written for people who can already draw. Although this author is a natural artist, she has found a rare empathy with those of us who have to struggle to get the line on paper to look like the line in our imaginations.
