As far as I know, Smart Italian is the only program available that teaches the student to speak in a natural and fluent manner. The program presents a series of vignettes in which an interviewer discusses a topic with everyday Italian speakers such as a diplomat, a chef, an art curator, a historian, an actress, etc. The conversations are presented in stages. The first stage, breaks down the sentences into bite sized segments in slow motion. The ensuing stages move progressively faster, until the sixth stage, when we hear the actual interview at normal speed. At first the conversations seemed impossibly fast, but after listening to them a few times, I began to understand more and more of what the speakers were saying.
The Smart Italian course has helped me tremendously in developing an ear for Italian as it is spoken by real people and in improving my accent. In my opinion, it is by far the best program available, and the best value for the money.
