Foundation Italian (Learn Italian with the Michel Thomas Method)

By Michel Thomas

  • CD-Audio
  • £80.00

The original no-pens, no-books, no-memorizing course that gets you speaking and understanding Italian in hours, not years. The revolutionary Michel Thomas Method has helped over 5 million people learn a language.

Experience significant results in a remarkably short period of time thanks to the unique Michel Thomas Method, perfected over 50 years by celebrated psycholinguist Michel Thomas. The method works in tune with how the brain prefers to receive, store and then retrieve information. You'll stick with it, because you'll love it.

* Pick up Italian naturally and unforgettably, without strain
* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing
* Build up your Italian in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourself

How does it work?
During this eight-hour live course, you will learn the language along with two students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout. Within the first hour you will be able to construct simple sentences. By the end of the course, you will have the confidence to understand and speak basic French. You will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating where necessary, and complete the course in about 20-30 hours.

What's new?
This new edition includes remastered audio and comes in new, eco-friendly recyclable packaging.

Why is it so successful?
'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel Thomas

Michel Thomas believed that the greatest barrier to any form of learning was stress: stress from worrying about remembering what you are being taught, stress from being afraid to make a mistake, stress from failing.

With the Michel Thomas Method, all the attention is focused on removing stress and tension from the learning environment. The teacher takes on full responsibility for your understanding, and therefore your remembering, of what is being taught. In fact, the Michel Thomas Method forbids you from trying to memorize. There's no writing, no books, no homework.

The Michel Thomas Method works by stripping away all inessential language and breaking down the most important language into its component parts. Crystal-clear building blocks are then presented, and only when they are absorbed and understood is the next piece of the puzzle introduced, enabling you to reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want.

What's in the Course?*
Foundation Italian comprises seven audio CDs plus two review CDs. The booklet is available to download from www.michelthomas.com.

*Note that the course content is the same as the previous Foundation Italian edition, with remastered audio


Learn anywhere
Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move. The audio CDs are MP3-compatible.

What learners are saying
I experienced the same sort of pleasure that you got from suddenly getting a crossword clue right or cracking a code...the finger-snapping moment of, Oh My God! I've just understood what you've said to me in Spanish or you've just understood me! -Peter LØVSTRØM , Actor, 2017

I've used Michel Thomas to get off the starting block for French, Italian and Spanish and I'm always surprised by how much I can say after only a few hours of listening. The Michel Thomas Italian course organises verbs into logical groups which helps you pick them up fast. And perhaps more importantly, it shows you how to use this grammar to build useful sentences. -Katie from Joyoflanguages.com

Biographical Notes

Michel Thomas (1914-2005) had an extraordinary life. Born in Poland, he spent his early years in Germany and then in France, where he studied psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris. When war broke out, he fought with the Resistance and suffered imprisonment in labour camps. At the end of the war he joined the US liberation army and later settled in the US where he established his world-famous language school. Languages, being his strength and passion became the focus of the next 50 years of his life that he spent developing a method that he hoped would change the way we teach and learn - so that everyone could succeed. He developed this method 'that works with the brain'. After creating several courses of his own, he passed on his method so that other teachers might use it too.
