Learn Italian

Its set up as a series of short stories, listeners are supposed to listen and see how much they understand, then at the end of the story there’s an overview to help sum up and see what listeners were able to understand.

There are also bold vocabulary words that are defined after the story, listeners are supposed to re listen each story a couple of times and as listeners do they gain a better grasp of the language.

Italian

Excellent book to enhance Italian comprehension, this book isn't meant to be Italian literature, but rather an exposure to various colloquial expressions, sentence structure and vocabulary strengthening.
The story is captivating enough to keep one listening and the author has provided translations of some of the more difficult to understand phrases.

Italian

It's a nice thing to learn Italian as it is a beautiful language, there are lot of ways to learn any language but I think learning a new language with audio books is kind of easy because you can listen the same audio book multiple times and it is also helpful in getting knowledge of how to pronounce Italian words properly.

Wasted Credit

Disjointed- content not appropriate for an audiobook. Very robotic.
Wasted credit when I could have had a decent audiobook. I was fooled by the surprisingly positive reviews for this!?

helpful

It is always nice to have a basic knowledge of a foreign language, word dictionaries are helpful but they do not tell how to speak a particular word when it comes to a sentence, so, audio books like these are helpful in that case to understand how to speak a word properly in a sentence.

Italian language

the author uses the concept of using stories to teach the Italian language, as it teaches listeners vocabulary with context which is helpful in remembering words, than just using dictionary.
The audio makes this a lot easier for beginners to listen and follow how each words should be pronounced correctly.
