who's that old bloke who has language CDs out? (hmm there's a good description!) Michael someone I think. I used his german ones and they have a good reputation.

There's a great site I have used, A lot of it's free.

Michel Thomas - my husband swears by his courses, I couldn't get on with them myself.

My husband also like MT - I couldn't get on with them either - perhaps it's a man thingconfused

This is really nice - both me and my colleagues have used this:

I think this is what I used when I did an evening course - if it's the right one, I then lent it to a friend and he said it really helped him travel around Latin America.

I had a really awful book to learn Italian with when I did an evening course but now can't identify it.

Hi, Personally I wouldn't learn these two languages at the same time as they are potentially easy to muddle!

However I've been learning Italian for a few years and I have a range of materials - I like the Contatti books and Cds, the BBC website esp at the beginning, also the BBC little grammar book is very good. It depends how you like to learn really - I also have a big book of grammar drills but that's not for everyone!
I started with an evening class so that gave me the basics.
