Mackin, Zane
[V1101] Elementary Italian I and [V1102] Elementary Italian II

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

He's cool. At first it may seem to be a lot of work but once you get used to it it's not bad at all. He doesn't just use the boring examples from the book and tries to talk about everyday real life things. He can pack so much into a 50 minute class-period, I was amazed. I felt very comfortable in the class and felt no apprehension about making mistakes because it is elementary I and that's how we best learned.
