Situational Italian -O.K.
on 20 November 2012
As an old-fashioned student of languages I have difficulties with modern-style language books which have the approach of 'Introducing yourself and talking about yourself', 'Making a hotel reservation','Describing your home' and the like. I prefer the building block approach to grammar with a storyline.
Having said all that the book does its job BUT it seems that the CD has to be bought separately which adds huge expense. I make do with a CD from a different coursebook and use of the Internet to listen to real Italian.
I truly cannot rate this book higher than other such books on the market. The Language Centre chose this one and that's why I bought it!
