The 12 Travel Conversations are Amazing
Yes, this app servers as an introduction to the Pimsleur method. However what makes it totally unique is the inclusion of the 12 travel conversations, each carefully broken down into easily manageable phrases. This 12 conversation series is done at a higher level and much more realistic level than any of the other dumbed-down welcome to Italian apps or language learning programs I have ever seen and trust me I've seen them all.
5 bucks, one lesson?!
Maybe I didn't read the description close enough, but this only comes with one "real" pimslur session. The travel scenes go by too fast, don't repeat as often as they should, and don't follow the pimslur spaced repetition model. I bought this app to practice Italian while driving, but to practice the travel scenes, you need to tap through a series of flash cards— not something I want to be doing while driving. Pimslur is a great way to learn a language, this app is not.
Starts with lesson 1 of the full Pimsleur Italian. Very easy to use and very fast learning. I plan to use their other 2go apps.
