Sample the Nod off in Italian booklet
Here is a sample from the booklet. The actual booklet is 48 pages and is a distillation of the information you hear on the CD. Once you have listened to the CD (even if you nod off), make sure you read through the booklet. You will then have a much greater understanding of the Italian language and its grammar. It will really help you to speak Italian properly without making the usual mistakes that English-speakers tend to do. The booklet is an easy-to-follow snapshot of the Italian language.
