About the Author
Teacher: As an expert linguist, Kristine spent ten years teaching German at universities in the United States and in Europe.
World Traveler: An adventurous spirit, Kristine has explored more than 100 countries, from Bhutan to Zimbabwe, and almost every exotic locale in between. She understands the problems that all travelers encounter, regardless of which country they are visiting. She knows first-hand how languages can open doors to new adventures, new friends and different cultures.
Language Scholar: Kristine completed her undergraduate and graduate studies while living in Heidelberg, Germany. She then received a second Master's Degree from the University of California in Santa Barbara and subsequently, did her Doctoral studies in Medieval German Languages and Literature. In addition to German, she also speaks a number of other languages ranging from Arabic to Swahili.
A Colorful Background: Kristine's fascination for languages began as a child growing up in a tri-lingual household in Oregon, where Croatian, Danish and English were spoken.
Kristine's natural gift for languages opened doors outside the academic world. She worked as a bilingual travel guide in Europe and later, as a translator at the U.S. Embassy in Germany.
On A Personal Note: Kristine's passion for travel, foreign languages and new cultures continues to take her around the world. One never knows where she'll venture to next - Namibia, Laos or Guyana. Kristine is a licensed pilot, a certified diver and an avid downhill skier. She enjoys competitive horseback riding and playing the piano. She makes her home in both Seattle, Washington and in Cape Town, South Africa.

Also the CD was horribly disappointing - I expected it would have the same lessons as the book, but instead it is just an alphabetical list of words. This would be great for review once you have finished the course, but it is of no help at all to learn the spoken words at the same pace as the written lessons in the book.
The book takes the student through a series of lessons and exercises to build a basic vocabulary and knowledge of sentence structure for reading and speaking Italian. The simplified pronunciation in the book and the CD-ROM should enable the student to sound out basic words and phrases. Recommended.
I did like the way the book presented pronunciations, and I'm pretty picky in that regard.
If you will be using the book ONLY before you go, and NOT as a resource while you're there, then this is a good buy for you. It's not a good carry-with resource, though, due to layoug and lack of index.
The stickers were a fun idea; if you are taking children with you, the stickers will really help your kids learn a few words as well.
