The disc contains only 7 of the 25 lessons it claims to contain, and they are not the lessons listed on the back of the box. It basically follows a Swiss family as they arrive in the airport in Rome, go through customs, get a taxi to the city for their hotel, check in, unpack, make arrangements to go on an outing, and exchange money at a bank. (The money exchange was a bit comical, as the man is in search of lire, which have been obsolete for almost a decade.)
The disc does not contain the "CD ROM Part" listed on the box, which should contain booklet and Internet links. Also, the DVDs chapter settings do not correspond exactly with the beginning of each lesson, which is frustrating.
The box also lists:
* the time of the disc as being 145 minutes. It was only 45.
* English subtitles as being available. They aren't. And there is no way to turn off the Italian subtitles. This is particularly troublesome, as the first part of the disc's method is to watch without subtitles and just absorb the "real life situation."
In short, if you purchase this disc, you're getting about $6 of the $20 content advertised. Don't bother. For now, you can do much better with many other products on the market. If, however, the manufacturer were to fix the issues and actually sell the product advertised on the box, I would enthusiastically give it another look.
