Now I have another question: What programs are good for "teaching yourself" a language, in this case, Italian?
There are Italian classes at the community college in our town, but neither my grandmother nor I have time for a formal class yet. I was thinking of getting a Rosetta Stone for us to learn Italian but I've heard mixed reviews about it. I have also used Living Language for French and Japanese and I think it is beneficial, but more geared for intermediate to advanced learners.
Are there any audio programs, books, activities or any other methods to learn Italian by oneself? Any information is appreciated!
