Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.
While on the subject of music, here is an Italian band that I rate quite highly too. They are called ‘Le Vibrazioni’ and I think they are still around. I guess you could say they are an Italian version of Oasis, although please feel free to disagree with me about this. Anyway, you can hear them and see one of their vids, ‘Dedicato a Te’ courtesy of YouTube: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pOGn1oRgjY[/youtube]
