Good Place to Begin
Having lived in Italy for over a year with the US military, I have picked up very little actual italian, however I did end up with an Italian girlfriend. I found this helpful and an easy way to memorize simple phrases and words. The narators are easy to understand and repeat and breakdown each phrase many times. It is very easy to listen to and speak along-with.
The down side is that they dont give you any laguage structure or conjugations. I find myself trying to speak to my girlfriend in Itlaian and she has to correct me or explain things everytime. Maybe the other volumes of this series have more in-depth curriculums, but I can't find them available on iTunes.
I recommend this only as an introduction to the language, and honestly it probably isn't even the best place to start. But it is something you can do in your car and pick up a few things from. Probably most helpful to tourists. I would also recomend installing an English-Italian Dictionary app, to help clarify some of the phrases.
I love this! Can't stop listening to it.
I love the Rapid series. I have Spanish and French volumes 1 and 2 and just got Italian. An excellent way to learn the basics for beginners and I understand the company has plans to release volumes 3, 4, and 5. Check the website earwormslearning.com for the free downloadable pdf booklets with the translations so you can read along.
Not a language learning miracle-worker, but a great, easy, and somewhat fun way to learn some really important phrases and get a foundation on which to build greater knowledge and vocabulary.
