Glossika for Italian

Has anyone tried out Glossika for Italian?

I'm wondering if it's worth the money. I really like the methodology but I'm worried that the syntax is too literal and I read that there was a problem with Italian pronunciation. Apparently it's supposed to be fixed now, but if anyone has any experience using it, I'd definitely be interested in hearing reviews.

Here's some sample audio I found online: https://soundcloud.com/glossika/glossika-spaced-repetition-training-day-1

All three books together contain roughly the same number of sentences as a Duolingo course. Completing the 3 books alone would take you to A2. Of course the sentences are different to the ones Duolingo teaches. Pronunciation is done by a native so it should be fine, but each sentence has an IPA which may or may not be accurate. Every Glossika book is based off the same set of English base phrases which are translated into the target language.

Of note, Glossika currently has some languages that Duolingo doesn't have yet (for English speakers): Thai, Mandarin, Hindi and Japanese. (Maybe others I don't know).

At least as regards the sample audio you posted you can be sure that the Italian pronunciation is correct

Grazie gianni, e un'altra domanda, cosa pensavi del ordine delle parole? Sembrava naturale? Chiedo perché vorrei essere sicuro che è italiano naturale, grazie
