Product description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Smart Start Italian Deluxe CD-ROM has, as its name suggests, been designed for newcomers to the language, and is intended to give you enough of a grounding to get by on your first visit to Italy and then some. Other titles in the range are Smart Start French Deluxe, Smart Start German Deluxe and Smart Start Spanish Deluxe.

The software is organised so you can you can dip in and out rather than following a structured path. Your first task is to decide whether you want to concentrate on listening, reading or speaking. Then you select a subject area from food, people, numbers, activities, home & office, and places & transport--depending on what you choose a number of activities will be available. These are grouped according to difficulty, the easiest simply being structured around learning vocabulary, the middle concentrating on phrases, and the most difficult centred on conversations.

Because the learning is activity-based things should be a bit more fun than simply repeating the words for different items till you know them by heart, though in fact there is no escape from the reality of learning words and phrases either at, or away from, the computer. Some of the activities allow you to record your own speech, and compare it with that of a native speaker. This can be very useful if you want to work on pronunciation, but you'll have to provide your own microphone, as there isn't one in the software box.

Smart Start Italian Deluxeis accompanied by a rather nice lesson booklet that provides some vocabulary basics, has handy beginner's language like counting and "survival phrases" ("good morning", "my name is", "the bill please" and so on), and has some lessons whose topics mirror those on the software.--Sandra Vogel
