Italian Language Audio Recs

I would like to buy an extremely reasonably priced Italian language CD set in preparation for my trip to Italy next year. Does anyone have any recs? The variety on Amazon is a bit daunting. I really just want something simple that I can listen to and repeat while I'm commuting to and from work. TIA!

  • Can't help you with that, but we just came back last week (Italy was AWESOME!!!), and found that most people spoke English pretty well.  We learned a few key things (i.e. Thank you, check please, etc) but didn't know any Italian otherwise.  You will love it there, it was amazing!

    Yeah, I figured most people speak English there but I just want to brush up. I used to take Italian in college but I think I sold all of my textbooks.

  • I have heard good things about the Pimsleur approach. It's much less expensive than RosettaStone.


  • rough guides has a phrasebook and a free audio download with phrases about the basics like trains, booking a room, etc...?

    i think that watching a movie in another language is also good for getting me me used to a language i haven't spoken in a long time. ??

  • Ditto on Pimsleur; however, think the cheaper, easier option is a phrasebook.  If you don't want to lug it over here, just photocopy the key phrases sections :).  Ciao!

  • There are free podcasts on Itunes for learning Italian (and other languages).
