    Wolfgang Laschet completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    Nicely done. The dialogues are interesting, the teachers are committed. Only the summary in English I would change. Give a summary of the vocabulary, the phrases, the grammar construction learned.
    Buon lavoro.

    This course is well organized and offers a good amount of words and sentences. The articles on the Italian cultural background are interesting -- fascinating. Un cappuccino or un caffelatte, anyone?
