The following appears at the end of session 9: "Voglio una cartina, dove posso comprare una?" Wouldn't this be a perfect time to use "dove posso ne comprare una?"? If not, why?

In the flashcards for Italian, Level 3, Session 4, one of the phrases to translate is: "And when have you(f/i) been here? Last year." However, even though the word "you" is not in parentheses, the response will be marked incorrect if you include it. The response which is considered correct is "E quando sei stata qui? L' anno scorso." I hope that a correction will be made either to the question or the answer.

I feel there is an error in the exercise, Write the Phrase You Hear; A female speaker says Sono andat(a) a prenderla . . ., but the given answer is Sono andat(o) a prenderla . . . , which doesn't agree either with the gender of the speaker or what she says. I updated the lesson before starting.

I am a Fluenz Italian student but at present I am going to an Italian conversation class in the city where I live. Sometimes we are learning a verb or some other grammar in class and I want to review only that subject from FLUENZ. How can I look up just one topic without having to go through all the FLUENZ sessions to find it?

Today I began working in Italian 3 for the first time. There is a new presenter. She referred to Sonia a couple of times, but never introduced herself. What is her name, please?

I notice that with the word aeroporto, it is sometimes pronounced "airoporto" and other times "ah-airoporto." Also, with words containing double-letters, they are not always pronounced the same - for example, zucchero places its emphasis on the beginning ("dzu") while bicchiere places its emphasis on the middle ("kye"), as does ufficio ("fee")... Also, with regards to rolling one's tongue, I find that I am able to roll it well but for only a short period of time. A word like arrivederci contains a rather sustained tongue-roll near the end of the word... How does one go about sustaining a tongue-roll?

I am on Level 3 Lesson 4. I have started listening to my Level 3 Podcasts, and while my comprehension is improving quickly, I find I am losing the ability to formulate sentences and responses as quickly as I did in Levels 1 and 2. I'm feeling like the more verbs and verb conjugation I learn, the more options I have to filter through when crafting responses, and I literally freeze. I was speaking more easily and crafting faster responses when I had less vocabulary. Anyone have tips/advice for bringing comprehension and speaking on a more even parallel?

Ciao, I want to thank you for the opportunity to try your product. I found it to be very helpful and I enjoyed the various tools, they helped me to retain information. "La donna" was very helpful with construction and pronunciation and I really liked the way she deconstructed the conversations. I think one of the highlights is the way your course is oriented to real life situations. It sets it apart from many other similar products. It provides a nice 'foundation" from which to grow. Of the three tools I have tried, I would have to say that yours is by far the best tool I tried. I would purchase it but we are only going to Italy for 6 days and $177 is too expensive given the time we have available (about three weeks now). Your pricing strategy front-end loads the cost to the consumer. I see that it's an additional $71 for 1+2 and an extra $50 for 1+2+3 and an incremental $35 for each of 4+5. I want a crash course for a month so that I can have some fun on my vacation. If I look at all my vacation costs, I would say this would fit my budget at $40-$50, not $177. I probably do not represent your typical target market of course. I realize that you will not change your model but for me it would have been a sure thing if I could pay for one month at a cheaper price instead of $177 which is a deal breaker. Love your product but can't handle the level 1 price. Keep up the good work, I never had so much fun learning a language before (Did Latin and French at high school - very boring, turned to Physics and math). Now, when I no longer have to conjugate for days and days I really enjoyed the learning experience. It would be fun taking French again this way as well as German and Spanish. Very practical. My wife and I have been bouncing Italian off each other since I tried out your product. Just spoke Italian for a few days. Molto bene, grazie e arrivederci, John Pugh

In the flashcard"s for session 28 of Italian 2, there is an inaccuracy. The English copy reads "(It)'s between the subway station and the cathedral". The program won't accept "stazione" in the answer, it will only accept "fermata".

I think there is a mistake in one of the "choose the right image" questions in Italian 3, session 11 We are asked to match "Lo studente" with an image, but none of the images shows a male student. One of the images did have several female students, and this did (incorrectly) match.
