Surprisingly Effective

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.
