Surprised by the information in this one

What a terrific overview of learning Italian. But, yes, you can cover this stripped overview in just a few hours, and keep it for real learning and review. No, you won’t really learn Italian in that short period of time—it takes application and work! But it what you need seems to be all here, to ably assist your personal application and work. 5 stars!

Perfect!

The material is organized by topic and is presented in a manner that you will most likely utilize in casual conversation. This book has since encouraged me to keep learning and practicing my Italian. Best of all, the free PDF attached! What more can you ask for?

Worth the listen

Great guide, it helps you understand HOW to use the vocabulary instead of just a list of vocabulary words. It makes comprehension and application much easier to achieve quick result of using those words and phrases.

Perfect asset for learning

Really like this book, it's full of phrases (some of them rather humorous) that you can easily incorporate into any Italian learning program you are using.

Helpful asset!

This is a nice little tool to add to your arsenal on your way to fluency. The best part is the examples of phrases and pronunciation that help me start to get a feel for how sentences are constructed.

Got improvement

I've studied Italian off and on for a few years and have always had problems speaking because I focused more on grammar than vocabulary. But in the short time that I've had this book, speaking is easier and my Italian friends say it's already improved. Yeah! 😊

Helps with reading and speaking

I am not sure you will actually LEARN Italian in just 5 hours, but you certainly will know enough to understand basic sentences and make yourself understood. Its pretty good.

Glad there's an PDF version attached to the audio

After trying another Italian language audio program which is very popular and which was also quite helpful, I will say that this is probably the better of the two. With the other audio program that I tried using, there was no PDF attached that could be purchased. So if there was an Italian word or phrase that I heard and could not understand I would have been completely lost if I had to actually write it.

I will purchase more from Learn Like A Native

I delighted in listening this book without a doubt and I had the option to utilize it to help revive my memory on my Italian, since I haven't communicated in Italian in more than 15 years and I have overlooked a great deal of what I was encouraged when I considered it in school. I discovered this book very stimulating.

Well organized!

Most of the tools I used were very over complicated and frankly prevented me from learning a new language. This book does change that for me though. The content is arranged by subject and presented in a way that most certainly would make the most of casual conversation.

Appreciable audible

I am a native English speaker and have always had an interest in the Italian language and culture. This phrasebook was a perfect fit for me, and jumped right in at a perfect level for someone who wants to practice right away. The book offers a very, very, intuitive pronunciation key for translating written text to spoken words.

Very detailed pronunciation guide

There was a very detailed pronunciation guide provided in the audible. I was slightly confused on a couple of the rules, but barring that, the plethora of everyday Italian phrases provided in subsequent chapters as well as their concise pronunciation guide helped me learn a lot! I used to never know which syllables would run together, and their pronunciation guide in English was supremely helpful.

Enjoyed this learning

I really enjoyed this Italian phrase book. I have been struggling for some time to find a book or another relevant resource that thoroughly explains Italian pronunciation rules. This book is very concise and specific in teaching its listeners on how to pronounce hard-to-sound-out words and phrases.

Easy listen!

A phenomenal aid to mastering the Italian language. The book is conveniently broken down into sections and each word is defined with an example sentence. This is the easiest way i ever felt for learning a language.

Great for learning Italian

I've used Duolingo for two years and needed to move on to listening, reading and writing. This is a great book to learn new words and to test your skills. At the end of each section, there is a five part quiz to make sure you understood. Excellent learning tool.
