4.0 out of 5 stars An easy and rewarding introductory course., 19 July 2004
This review is from: Talk Italian (Course Book and 2 CDs) (Paperback)
I bought this small course book and tape a few days before an intensive Italian language course that I attended was due to start, and it was an excellent and easy aid to learning the basics of Italian in preparation for the course. The 100 page booklet is constructed of easy material, with tests at the end of each section that are not difficult and also make the process rewarding so that there is a good chance, I think, that you'll sail through the book just for the fun of it. The actors and actresses on the tapes all have engaging and distinguishable voices, but the one negative thing that I would point out is the jingles that play before sections of the course. This is a bit annoying after a while. It makes the course feel less serious, though it is really just a quick and light introductory course anyway, and to that end, the course is a success. It works as an ideal primer to an evening class in Italian, to make walking into the class much less daunting.
