Excellent! I hope you stay in business for a long time! Very high quality content, downloadable audio presentations, and downloadable written material. Many other great website resources, as well. The ‘speech speed control’ feature is very helpful to assist with natural, native listening comprehension. There is so very little viable, intermediate Italian instruction on-line, especially with a lot of very useful English translations, hence, I feel so fortunate to have discovered you. Grazie mille e Tante belle cose!
