2.0 out of 5 stars Repetition, repetition with no situations or explanations, 24 April 2001
N. Gratton "Writer & Photographer" (Exeter) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)   
These tapes contain about 40 "lessons", which aren't lessons at all but just lists of words and phrases where you have the opportunity to listen to the Italian phrases and repeat them. There's no association with a situation to help you remember, and no explanation of any of the vocabulary or grammar you are "using".
It may be quite effective for remembering lists of words, but not in any way that you'll find easy to use in a conversation. I'd advise you to steer clear of this, except maybe as an extra tool to help you revise your existing Italian vocabulary.
If you want to begin Italian, this is completely unsuitable ... go for Michel Thomas or Pimsleur instead, both of which are excellent.
