I found the Michel Thomas method for teaching Italian to be more effective than other methods I have tried. However, I can only listen to this for a few minutes at a time, as I find the constant "chewing and smacking" noises made by Michel Thomas extremely annoying. The book would be more effective if those noises could be edited out.

This covers a good base but not for beginners I believe. I will continue to the next in the series.
Surprisingly effective, although I would worry that the style of teaching is limited; Michael Thomas says things like 'posso' = I can, but this might mean that one has trouble with any verb / noun that he hasn't explicitly taught you. I also don't think the level is particularly high, but it must be good if you have never encountered the language before.

Would you try another book written by Michel Thomas or narrated by Michel Thomas?
Has Michel Thomas Method put you off other books in this genre?
How could the performance have been better?
Have a native speaker - this is simple.
What character would you cut from Michel Thomas Method?
Any additional comments?
My Italian friend howled with laughter at Michel Thomas' "Italian" accent. She said that if I spoke like that in Genoa I'd be laughed at - and she was right!<br/>Please change this to a NATIVE Italian speaker: this is not a bad course per se, but the pronunciation is poor. I'd love to big this course up, but I trust mt Italian friends more than a publisher's sales spin.
