I have been searching for an easy way to teach my daughter, age 4 who has grown up only speaking english, my native Italian. I have tried various computer programs, books and tapes, and other teaching methods. All were rather boring and unhelpful, my daughter soon lost interest. This system is wonderful! The lessons are interesting and fun. They are blended wonderfully with songs and activities that keep a child's attention. I highly recommend this program. I do recommend that someone in the family practice with the child and participate with them while they listen. This is by far the best children's language packet I've seen.

I'm an American woman, married to an Italian. Although we live in the U.S., we are trying to raise our daughter to be fluent in Italian. This course is probably the best one that I have seen for kids.

Here's the problem: once you have finished this course, there seems to be nothing more (no volume/course II). I guess this can still be useful if you wish to get your child excited about studying Italian. However, if you are both serious about learning, you soon will have to switch to another system (or move to Italy).

For long-term Italian study we are using the Rosetta Stone DVD course.

As an elementary school teacher i know that things for children are a good, simple way for people to start learning; even "older" adults. I have been correct. I also like hearing the language from both children and adults as my husband and I will be spending six weeks in italy with families. I plan to pass this along to friends that want to review their past italian language skills. The workbook also provided good review and learning. It's been fun. Ciao.
