Summary

This Audiobook will take you through the basics of Italian with Basic Bootcamp, All About, and Pronunciation lessons.

The five Basic Bootcamp lessons each center on a practical, real-life conversation. At the beginning of the lesson, we'll introduce the background of the conversation. Then, you'll hear the conversation two times: one time at natural native speed, and one time with English translation. After the conversation, you'll learn carefully selected vocabulary and key grammar concepts. Next, you'll hear the conversation one time at natural native speed. Finally, practice what you have learned with the review track. In the review track, a native speaker will say a word or phrase from the dialogue, wait three seconds, and then give you the English translation. Say the word aloud during the pause. Halfway through the review track, the order will be reversed. The English translation will be provided first, followed by a three-second pause, and then the word or phrase from the dialogue. Repeat the words and phrases you hear in the review track aloud to practice pronunciation and reinforce what you have learned.

In the fifteen All About lessons, you’ll learn all about Italian and Italy. Our native teachers and language experts will explain everything you need to know to get started in Italian, including how to understand the writing system, grammar, pronunciation, cultural background, tradition, society, and more -- all in a fun and educational format!

The five Pronunciation lessons take you step-by-step through the most basic skill in any language: how to pronounce words and sentences like a native speaker. You’ll go from basic concepts to advanced tips and will soon sound like you’ve been speaking Italian your entire life.

Useful to a point, but too much filler

Obviously not meant to be a stand alone intro to the language. And wouldn't recommend as a choice for travelers looking for one program for easy phrases. If someone was planning on buying all the other levels and really learning the language, then it would be useful. Regardless, I didn't appreciate all the chapters with info about Italian culture including pop culture. I paid for language instructions.

Beginner italian

Not too bad for a beginning student to learn a few italian language basics. Perfect to listen to while driving.
