Learn to Speak Italian Now, by Transpararent Language, is available at most of the office stores and computer software stores.It has a series of excellent add-ons which are pretty much only available from the company.Buy the main program, then contact the company for a catalog of add-ons.An excellent add-on is "Word Ace" an interactive dictionary and verb conjugator.Another great add-on i s "Vocabulary Master" which allows you to learn vocabulary using a "flash card" idiom (Italian to English and vice-versa.You also can add your own words to the words that are in the program.
I have not found a good translator, and have tried several including Universal Translator.For the most part, you put in an Italian phrase and get back "gibberish."If anyone reading this knows of a dec ent translator, please let me know.
Hope this helps.Feel free to inquire further.
