A Fantastic Resource for the Italian Learner.

I am currently learning Italian, and found this book to be extremely helpful for understanding Italian words and how they might be used in a phrase or sentence. All vocab words are neatly organized by subject or context and a sentence or phrase using that word is provided to give the reader an idea of the grammar nuances and what a typical use for that word might be.

Overall would highly recommend.

The word selections were great, and I learned many useful words that I will most definitely need to use in conversation. A ton of useful categories are given including travel, family and relationships and good words for the business world and job market.

I like this book for several reasons

It's so difficult to find listening material to study when learning a new language. I was delighted with this book, because even though there are many words I haven't learned yet, it is easy to figure out the context of each story, and effectively "guess" the unfamiliar words. I'm really enjoying this book, and finding it very helpful.

Fantastic way to learn and practice Italian

I was very happy to get hold of this book. Although I am not a beginner in Italian, I found it very fun and useful to listen. It is a fantastic way to learn and practice Italian. You need to have some basic knowledge in Italian to be able to read the stories in this book because it is not really an ABC of the language.

Great resource for basic communication

As the other reviews have mentioned, this is a great book. Well formatted, great references for vocabulary but it definitely isn't a beginners book. It can help with getting the rhythm of listening Italian and repetition is the key to success. Highly recommended!

A wonderful resource for your Italian learning

I loved this book. It's loaded with useful, practical information presented in an easy to access manner. Every helpful tip/recommendation you could want is contained here, they thought of everything. New vocabulary is highlighted in the listening selections and dialogues, then listed afterwards with translations. All the listening activities have English translation. Comprehension questions help you validate you understood what you listen.

A great resource for learning Italian

I was lucky to be introduced to this set. I have been struggling to learn Italian and I feel like most of my struggle is because I just didn’t understand the grammar. This set has the rules laid out in a way that I consider to be easier to figure out, and easier to find answers when I need clarification or have a question.

Well organised and very well narrated !

This comprehensive set pairs a really great learning resource along with enjoyable short stories that are fun to listen. Because of the readily available translation, I don’t find myself struggling to comprehend the story and becoming too frustrated to continue as I have with some other short story presentations. This set has helped me break through the wall I hit trying to learn, and very nearly giving up because I didn’t feel I was making any progress.

These chapter are great for self study.

They are comprehensive and easy to follow. The presentation of grammar is not overwhelming, and it is also easy to follow. There is a lot of cultural information that is super useful, and not found in other textbooks such as emergency numbers. The idiomatic expressions and useful phrases are also really great. Overall this chapter provides more "real world" context with language that can be used everyday.

A nice balance between Italian Short Stories

I highly recommend this set of Italian short stories, grammar, and basic phrases for the beginners of the Italian language who are needing a catalyst to the intermediate or advanced level. These books are for students that don't have the time required to learn Italian the traditional way.

This book will appeal to curious good listen

This set of books contain short stories in Italian that are directly translated into English. The stories are both interesting and cover Italian history and culture. The stories also contain a glossary of key words. Each book contains a list of grammatical rules that are used in the formal Italian language.

A great informative audible for us

Learning a new language is not an easy task and I firmly believe that using multiple resources helps speed up the learning process. These books are proving to be a great addition to the learning tools I already use. The author does not mess around jumps right in which may be uncomfortable for absolute beginners however being uncomfortable should be expected when learning a new language.

Love this audiobook for lovely info

The books strike a nice balance of engaging dialogues with translation while explaining key grammatical concepts. There are many resources for language learning but many proceed along a similar path. If you are looking for a non-traditional learning method then look no further. This is your resource.
