Very dated, expensive

What disappointed you about Italian Level 1 Lessons 6-10?

Pimsleur language courses have somehow or other got good reviews everywhere - on the basis of this segment of the Italian course, I have no idea why.

The entire course consists of the learner playing the part of a man trying to pull a "young woman", constantly begging her to drink "something" or eat "something" with him "NOW" or at all times of day and night.

This is simply not useful! God help anyone who expects this to be useful on a holiday to Italy, unless you especially want to come across as a pervert.

The material doesn't seem to have been updated since it was first published - so you would expect this to be available at a knock-down price - but it's actually hugely expensive as you need 6 different volumes to complete even the first level. I strongly recommend you try more modern and better priced alternatives like the Paul Noble course (much better value and much less likely to get you arrested) and Rocket Italian.

Simon & Schuster are making money out of old rope on this product and I would avoid it.


Would you ever listen to anything by Pimsleur again?

On the basis of this, no I wouldn't bother with any other Pimsleur courses.
