This Pimsleur series is outstanding, but pricey.
The problem with audible.com's delivery of these five lessons is that they show up as a single track, a single .mp3 file. This makes listening to them a chore. It should be possible not only to skip to a different lesson, but to skip to parts of a lesson. For example, each lesson ends with about 5 minutes of a workbook exercise. I want to skip this part as I can't do it in the car. But the single track prevents me from skipping it.
Burning it to a CD from iTunes doesn't really help: it breaks the five lessons into several sections, but it breaks them by time. So the start of a particular lesson is always in the middle of a track. When you advance to the next track, you can't tell if you're in the same lesson or the next lesson.

By the time I got to Unit 5 I was able to have real life conversations with Native Italians.
This is one of the best language learning programs I have encountered.
On the downside, the format of the recording has the units grouped as one entire recording. This presents some difficulty depending on what program you're listening to the book on. i.e. one is unable to skip between chapters randomly.
When using the Audible App on iPad it isn't an issue, but if using iTunes on my Mac it is a challenge.
