This audio book consists of lessons 24 to 30 from Learning Italian Like Crazy. Learning Italian Like Crazy will teach you how to speak authentic conversational Italian. I have only used native Italian-speakers in this program to make sure that you develop an authentic Italian accent.
If you are not concerned with learning how to speak real everyday conversational Italian, then this program is probably not for you. I understand that there are people who only want to learn enough Italian to communicate with a hotel clerk, restaurant waiter, flight attendant, etc., when they take their next trip to Italy. But there are others who want to learn enough Italian so that they will be able to develop meaningful friendships and relationships with Italian speakers. If the latter category best describes you, then this program is for you.
Learning Italian Like Crazy also puts a major emphasis on improving pronunciation. Some people have a natural ability that allows them to quickly develop native like pronunciation. You probably know someone who is the type of person who I am referring to. We have all seen or heard someone who can imitate the voice of a famous politician, actor, singer, or other celebrity so well that you could almost be fooled into thinking that you are actually hearing the famous person speak.
Unfortunately, I was not born with that talent. I had to learn certain techniques to improve my pronunciation when learning foreign languages. Those same pronunciation-enhancing techniques are incorporated in this program.
So if you have struggled to improve your Italian pronunciation in the past, after completing this program ddon't be surprised if native Italian speakers begin to compliment you on your pronunciation.
