Are you bored with the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Italian? Are you bored with all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn Italian and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is!
The best way to learn Italian is by listening to short stories. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start. And that's exactly why we created this book. We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning in a certain context (for example, a short story).
Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Italian language. Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn Italian without even realizing you're learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time (they only a take few minutes to listen to). The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, and romance. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

The person performing the english translation was hard to understand, as her accent was difficult to decypher.
Possible a person with a clear diction.
"Learning is fun."
Definitely yes, especially to my friend who will travel this December so that she could understand and interact with Italian people.
That was best way to learn Italian. It has short stories in Italian with questions and there were English summary to gauge better understanding. Plus, the short stories have different genres. Over all, it was great experience.
"well narrated Italian stories!"
What I liked best from this audiobook is that the narrator narrates the stories slowly and clearly which makes it easy to understand for us who aren't very good yet in Italian language.
I highly recommend this audiobook if you are currently learning how to speak Italian. this is an effective way to learn!
I love it!
the way they pronounce words. I can easily understand them. perfect for beginners. also their accent. It is easy to follow.
"learn more in Italian language with this book"
yes. I have lots of friends who are into foreign language and they'll surely love these audiobooks by The Language Academy. Something they must have in their library :)
Their overall performance in narrating the stories is the best!
"it definitely increases my vocabulary."
I started learning Italian a few days ago, and I love it. I finally found this book that I think will cater to my beginner's needs for now, It has very basic, simple children's stories in Italian. When I play audio, I hear a lady reading the story very slowly in Italian, and after each paragraph there's an English translation. There are a lot of words I don't know, but they're easy to google, and it definitely increases my vocabulary.
"fascinating short stories."
I love it.
Can't help mimicked the narrator while appreciating the content of the short stories. It was so beautiful learning the right pronunciation of Italian words and phrases.
I am about to travel in India and Philippines. Any audio book to listen to get some familiarization with the common phrase that are normally used by common people? Hope it would be very soon. I would also appreciate it if it has short stories cause it is easier to relate to it. Just like what you did in this book.
"This is what I've been looking for."
It was awesome.( Wait, three words only? Seriously?)
Can't compare it to any book. This one is totally unique experience. The short stories were all good and the way it was narrated was clear. I learned a lot especially in pronouncing the words and phrases properly. If it was just a book, I will be having a hard time with how it is being said. With the audio, I could hear it and familiarize myself with it and before I knew it, I already learned.
"Love it! Will definitely share this to my friends!"
What I liked about this audiobook is he idea of combining learning and fun! You'll surely enjoy these stories as well as getting eager to learn the languages for you to understand the stories! well done The Language Academy. It is very helpful to those who are studying foreign languages :)
a big help! 5 stars for this one!
"Superb Italian Stories here!"
The Stories and the way it was narrated. Easy to understand that beginners in this language could enjoy :)
Looking forward to more language book by this publisher! I highly recommend their works!
"perfect stars for this one too!"
yes a lot better because it is very effective if you can hear how these words and phrases are being pronounce. You'll learn it in no time unlike by just reading it.
good one! I enjoyed every story of it. It made me glad that I have studied this language before. :)
