Very stimulating

I just started learning Italian with TeachMe. The approach is very motivating. The pronunciation part with the wave form of your voice on the screen really impressed me and it helps a lot with getting the right accent.

I'm completely satisfied, especially at such a reasonable price. I'm progressing quickly and enjoying it at the same time.
