How should I learn (very basic!) Italian?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to Italy (Rome, Venice, probably Lake Como and Milan) in May, and though I have no illusions of becoming fluent in Italian between now and then, I'd like to learn enough to get around and not be completely dependent on the Italians' knowledge of English. I don't want to pay Rosetta Stone $250 for the privilege, though. Any podcasts, particular CDs, etc that you'd recommend?

I do have a Spanish minor, though I'm extremely rusty, so thanks to the magic of Romance languages I think I could pick it up pretty well. Or at least, well enough!
