Updated Review

Where does Pimsleur Italian Level 5 MP3: Learn to Speak and Understand Italian with Pimsleur Language Programs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Af far as Italian language learning resources, Pimsleur is one of the best.

What does Pimsleur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I now have the ability to converse fairly well in Italian, and am not afraid to head out on my own in unfamiliar situations.

Any additional comments?

This is an update after having completed all 30 lessons in the course. This level introduces more idioms, and day to day conversational phrases. More emphasis on tenses, such as " I should have telephoned first" etc. More vocabulary and more interpersonal emphasis. The first few courses seems to court business travelers, this one if for everyone trying to improve their language skills.
