OK to refresh your Italian?

Would you be willing to try another book from Innovative Language Learning? Why or why not?

Yes, i will follow the rest and hopefully relearn and improve my Italian a lot.

Any additional comments?

I found this useful to rather fast refresh the little Italian I know. Knowing some it is a bit slow here and there, but combining normal speech, slowly pronouncing an breaking down in syllables is very good for understanding and pronunciation. Explanations are mostly good and well distributed through the lessons, words, some grammar etc.

If you know some Italian, some breakdowns of the more simple words are repeated to often, and it's completely unnecessary to explain buena fortuna in every lesson! But one just uses these "pauses" to repeat the last sentences etc.

The English is rather amusing here and there both what is said and the pronunciation, but it's not an English course! And you learn well pronounced Italian.
