Worth the buy

A remarkable move in the Italian language. I was skeptical, but I was so happy to purchase this book. Was pronunciation crystal-clear, and great to have both dialects. This is highly recommended.

Very detailed pronunciation guide

The audible has provided a very detailed pronunciation guide. I was slightly confused about some of the rules, but barring that, the abundance of Italian everyday phrases provided in subsequent chapters and their succinct pronunciation guide helped me to learn a lot! I never used to know which syllables were going to run together.

Suggested!

Although learning a language understanding is desirable, traveling a phrase book is necessary, if all else fails, point to the word you want to use.and let the individual see it themselves. This book is perfect, since it is thin, succinct, English with Italian translation plus the pronunciation suggested.

Extremely concise listen

I had always loved the Italian phrase book. I have been looking for some time to find a book or other similar guide dealing in depth with the rules of Italian pronunciation. The book is extremely concise and precise in teaching its readers how to pronounce words and phrases that are difficult to distinguish.

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.

Fascinating listen

While learning a grasp of the language is advisable, when traveling a phrase book is indispensable, if all else fails, point to the phrase you want to use.and let the person see it themselves. This book is ideal as it is small, concise, English with Italian translation plus the suggested pronunciation.

I always enjoyed the phrase book in Italian. I have searched for some time to locate a book or other related guide that discusses the rules of Italian pronunciation in detail.
