Learn Italian with the Michel Thomas Method
How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. You, as the learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. Within the very first hour, you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing. You learn your own language, so there's no stress and no anxiety. You'll stick with it because you'll love it.
Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organized so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization, so you progress rapidly.
What's in the Course?
Total Italian with the Michel Thomas Method includes up to 7 hours of audio on CD and a practice CD-ROM with interactive activities and assessment which should be done after the course and as a means of review.
*Note that the content is the same as the previously entitled Foundation course, but with the addition of a CD-ROM.
