Amazing

I really enjoyed this book, it is easy to read when you are having fun. I loved the stories and it was helpful that are short stories with summaries at the end. Another thing that I found useful was the translation of words and phrases that are common to use from Italian to English language.

Fairly Very Nice

I have absolutely no experience with Italian and now I have a basic understanding to build on. I enjoyed the questions after each story because they gave me a chance to really check my understanding of what I had read.
