Summary

Is conversational Italian turning a little too tricky for you? Do you have no idea how to order a meal or book a room at a hotel? 

If your answer to any of the previous questions was "yes", then this book is for you! 

If there’s even been something tougher than learning the grammar rules of a new language, it’s finding the way to speak with other people in that tongue. Any student knows this - we can try our best at practicing, but you always want to avoid making embarrassing mistakes or not getting your message through correctly.
 

"How do I get out of this situation?," many students ask themselves, but no answer is forthcoming.

Until now. 

We have compiled more than one hundred conversational Italian stories for beginners along with their translations, allowing new Italian speakers to have the necessary tools to begin studying how to set a meeting, rent a car, or tell a doctor that they don’t feel well. We’re not wasting time here with conversations that don’t go anywhere. If you want to know how to solve problems while learning a ton of Italian along the way, this audiobook is for you! 

How Conversational Italian Dialogues works:

  • Each new chapter will have a fresh, new story between two people who wish to solve a common, day-to-day issue that you will surely encounter in real life.
  • An Italian version of the conversation will take place first, followed by an English translation. This ensures that you fully understood just what it was that they were saying.
  • Before and after the main section of the book, we shall provide you with an introduction and conclusion that will offer you important strategies, tips and tricks to allow you to get the absolute most out of this learning material.
  • That’s about it! Simple, useful, and incredibly helpful; you will not need another conversational Italian audiobook once you have begun listening to and studying with this one!

We want you to feel comfortable while learning the tongue; after all, no language should be a barrier for you to travel around the world and expand your social circles!  

So look no further! Listen to Conversational Italian Dialogues and start learning Italian right now!

Useful for improving accent

I found this book well-suited for helping the listener speak better Italian. It is one thing to know the proper grammar structure and context of a language, and another to speak it correctly. Sometimes, proper pronunciation could be the difference between a helpful conversation with a native speaker, or a confrontation due to miscommunication. For those Italian beginners that prefer the former, this book is a good resource. There are various contexts of dialogue to learn from, along with the interesting short stories. To aid comprehension, each dialogue/story is repeated in English. This can help the listener to find errors in their comprehension, which is quite common for beginners.
Personally, I think a foundational background in Italian is a pre-requisite; however, even completely new learners can grasp the teachings, depending on their affinity for language.
Excellent narration, content and overall presentation.

This book was given to me for free at my request, and this review is based on my comprehensive evaluation of this book and what it offers.

Straightforward and Helpful

This book is great for learning how to speak Italian better, and it is useful for learners at different levels of proficiency. The point, I believe, is to make the listener comfortable with the way most words are pronounced, along with the proper usage in various contexts. There are good stories in this book too, which are more like captions of typical interactions between people. The stories are meant to teach the listener how to interact in such situations, such that, they can manage to pass the right message during such encounters. Imagine not being able to tell the local cabbie exactly where you're going due to a translation/accent problem.
The narration is also good, both the Italian and corresponding English translations. Listening to these stories continually, while attempting the lessons learnt, are a sure way to speaking proper Italian within a short time.

I received a free copy of this book. This review is however based on my honest opinion of the book and how to maximize it's potential.

Good book.

This is an excellent tool from lingo mystery for improving Italian conversational skills. Interesting conversation scenarios and fun stories are presented in Italian and then interpreted in English. However it's best to use the accompanying pdf file as a lesson guide while Listening to the Italian dialogues. This helps the listener to quickly identify how some words are used and pronounced.
I also like the pace of the lessons and the simplicity of the stories.

Practical Conversations

I have been loving Lingo Mastery. I find their conversations to be practical and useful.

My favourite way of learning is to have the PDF they provide pulled up in front of me. Then I can listen and get the pronunciation with the spelling. It helps when I try to go back and try saying it, and it improves my speech with other words that are similar.

I like that they say everything in Italian so you can try to figure out what is going on, but then they repeat everything in English, to help clarify anything you didn't know or were not 100% sure on. I like that they speak at a conversational pace. However, this was hard in some Italian speech. I had to listen at the slowest pace possible at parts.

If you are wanting to learn or improve a language, I highly recommend Lingo Mastery.

Great stories; excellent curriculum

Improving conversational Italian is the main goal of this book. Mostly, not all parts of a language vocabulary is used for everyday conversation; however, there are some very common words. This book essentially presents the use of these words in regular, relatable conversations. While picturing the scene of the conversation, the listener is then able to practice how they would say the words properly if in that situation. I think this is a good resource for learning Italian, plus the stories are quite good.

This book was given to me freely for a review, and I am leaving this review wilfully and based on my evaluation.

Just as promised.

I enjoyed listening to this book. Apart from learning the language, and also hearing how to properly say some words, this book actually teaches how to use these words in a real life situation. It's one thing to know a lot of words, and it's another to understand the rules of its application in various conversational settings. I think this kind of book is very useful for all learners of the Italian language, and should be recommended as such.

A copy of this book was given to me for free (as a review copy), but this review is only a reflection of my idea of what this book represents.

Great tool for listening to Italian

I really enjoyed this audiobook and I think it is useful for practicing listening skills. The short dialogues are great, as they cover a variety of scenarios that happen in day to day life.

I think this audiobook can be hard to follow along with if you are just listening. I highly suggest reading the PDF file at the same time as listening to connect the words. I would have preferred if they read the whole Italian dialogue once, then covered the more challenging sentences in English with the Italian re-read so that it is easier to connect the new vocabulary in both English and Italian. However, using the PDF allows you to do this.

Overall, highly recommend!

Good next step

I have tried before with stories, but conversations seem to be even better. The dialogue form helps you great in memorizing vocabulary and you can understand almost everything from the context. I have just started with these conversations, but they seem to be the best tool to go from single words to sentences and statements. Ability to read and listen the same text stimulate your brain much - I see it is working.
The dialogue situations are these most needed when travelling to Italy.

Great way to learn how to actually speak Italian

I am new to Italian and so this audiobook has been really helpful. I can easily listen to it in my car, but then refer back to the PDF later if I want to see how it a certain word is spelled. I have learned other languages and learned that it is important to have different resources, reading, listening to conversations. This book is a great resource to further your learning.
