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.

What a wonderful product! My husband and I speak a little Italian and wanted to introduce our son to the language before our trip to Italy. I borrowed this from the library before buying it. I couldn't have made a better choice! My son, who is 7, loves this set and enjoys listening to the CDs, which include dialogue and songs. What I like about the CDs: the gentle and encouraging voice of the narrator/teacher; the everday situations; the strangely catchy songs (which teach numbers, colors, etc); and, perhaps best of all, the voices of Italian children saying their names, asking for various things to eat, choosing colored balloons, and more. I think their presence on the CDs makes children feel at home and encourages them to mimic their peers. The accompanying book reinforces the dialogue on the CDs, though it is perhaps most useful to children who can already read (English). This has been a great way to prepare for our trip to Italy. I only wish there were a second, more advanced set, so we could keep going! My son is certainly ready for more. I highly recommend this set to anyone wishing to introduce her child to basic Italian.

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.
