WHAT YOU'LL DISCOVER IN ROCKET ITALIAN
Here's a list of what you'll discover in Rocket Italian:
- Track 1) Introduction & Greetings [18 min]
In this introductory lesson, Alex and Maria take first things first. You learn how to greet someone and say hello at all different times of the day (and in both the formal and informal mode of address). You'll also get a crash course on counting to boot!
- Track 2) Basic Introductions [18 min]
In this next lesson you find out how to ask how someone else is doing and reply in turn. You'll learn how to ask someone what their name is, where they are from, and some essential pleasantries by way of saying it was a pleasure to meet someone! In this lesson you also get some vital tips on Italian pronunciation...
- Track 3) Survival Phrases [19 min]
Everybody needs survival phrases when they learn a new language, and we'll come to your rescue in this lesson with a few ways to manage a conversation that is going too fast, or might just be a little too advanced for you in the early days.
Not only that, we'll leave you with a handy compliment that you can use to pay the utmost respect to your Italian host, and get a smile out of them at the same time.
- Track 4) At the Cafe [21 min]
This refreshing lesson takes you to the counter to order a sumptuous Italian coffee. But not so fast... you'll have to learn a few things about asking for what you want or need in Italian first!
On the grammatical side, this lesson also shows you how to deal with adjectives and nouns that all come in either masculine or feminine forms!
- Track 5) At the Italian Restaurant [22 min]
We really like this lesson, because it is the lesson where we learn all about the phrase "TO LIKE." I ask Alex what he thinks about Roman-style cooking, and after he confirms that he does indeed like it, we make plans to go to a trattoria.
- Track 6) Getting Around [19 min]
In this lesson, we welcome you to your first experience with public transportation in Italy! But not to fear, you've got an excellent guide, who will show you how to get to the train station in Rome with all your limbs - and all your sanity - fully intact!You'll also find out how to say "excuse me" in Italian, and we'll introduce you to the common phrase, C'è, for "there is."
- Track 7) At the Train Station [19 min]
After you complete this lesson where we are at the train station, you'll not only be able to buy tickets whenever you need to, but you'll also be able to talk about how much anything costs after we learn how Quanto costa and Quanto costano work.
You'll come away knowing one of my favorite expressions as well, which you can use to say what you "would like," whatever that may be!
- Track 8) The Perfect Tourist [28 min]
In this lesson we get to relax in the role of tourist. Alex gets a brochure from the tourist information desk and finds out that he can take photos wherever he wants. Even better, he figures out how to ask where a bathroom is before it's too late!
In the process, you will get all the words for directions straight - so to speak - and come to terms with the sometimes tricky Italian prepositions.
- Track 9) Catching a Taxi [27 min]
This lesson marks a chance meeting between the naive Western tourist (played by Alex) and a stunning Italian fashion designer from Milan (played by Maria). You'll get a first-hand exchange that not only succeeds in breaking the ice, but also a shared taxi fare to the city!

- Track 11) Above it All (at Mt. Vesuvius) [19 min]
This is the first lesson in the Interactive Audio Course devoted to Italian Nightlife. It is also one of our favorite lessons, because before we hit the town we take an impromptu trip up one of the most magnificent volcanoes in the world - Mt. Vesuvius! You'll also collect some new words for temperature, and how to say "it looks" and "it seems."
- Track 12) A Taste for Limoncello [18 min]
This lesson marks the beginning of the end for our night time revelry. We have a quick discussion about a popular Italian liqueur, then proceed to test our preferences with several rounds of the stuff. Even if you've never tried limoncello, you'll emerge from this lesson with a mouthful of Italian words to suit any drinking occasion.
On the grammatical side, you find out how to make things "small" in the Italian language, and how to avoid confusion between two extremely short but extremely similar words.
- Track 13) At the Night Club [28 min]
After fueling our desire to do some dancing, we head out to the nightclub, after Maria convinces Alex that it is really not as expensive as he thinks. The words for "night" and "morning," and the expression "Oh my gosh!" also feature prominently.
- Track 14) To the Pharmacy [27 min]
After their night out, Alex and Maria discuss the prospect of taking a trip to the pharmacy for a sore stomach and head. Go figure! And if you are bad at making decisions, and need to pick up some phrases of the non-committal kind - such as "Let's wait" or "Maybe later," then this is the lesson for you!

- Track 17) Reading Dante [26 min]
Dante is not only one of the great staples of Italian literature, but also the source of much of the standard Italian language itself. And that's why we included a whole lesson on the topic.
You'll add a couple more expressions to your conversational arsenal that you're sure to use on a regular basis, and gain a clear understanding of verbs that express continuing action (the ones ending in -ING).

Alex and Maria make plans to go to one of the most popular Italian operas on the planet, and you learn how to talk about what you do and don't remember, when something is "necessary" to do, and some great expressions to show your enthusiasm - even if you find you simply can't be enthusiastic about the opera!
- Track 20) In the Countryside [24 min]
