This should be a good tool for activation :) Of course explicit grammar study is faster if you can benefit from it.
Is it generally comprehensible, graded input? That sounds good, though of course to learn patterns from input you need thousands of sentences.

I don't think you can achieve A2 through Glossika without having the list of things you need to be able to do at A2 and choosing some sentences that you need to reproduce. But you'll also pick up many things that aren't needed for A2.

Are there any known examples of using Glossika from scratch?

Her way of pronouncing the r sound is called "erre moscia". It's not a model to emulate if one wants to learn Italian.

It appears that Glossika has hired a new speaker/translator for Italian whose r's are standard fare.


Has the course been updated with the new speaker yet? I dont want to pay a hundred bucks for that really non-standard [r].

Yes it was updated and released last year already. Besides if you ask them they will send you a free sample, and you can even sample most of their courses on their Soundcloud page.
