I've been listening to News in Slow Italian for a few months now. I just returned from my latest trip to Italy and my comprehension was SO much better than the last time! I had far fewer “deer in the headlights” moments that are so embarrassing – when you ask a perfectly understandable question in Italian and get a perfectly incomprehensible response. Listening to your dialogs really helps train your ear to hear words, and not just a jumble of sounds. I hope that all Italian language teachers are encouraging their students to use this valuable resource. I'm learning at home and have been wanting something like this for a long time. Grazie mille!
