I have taken intro to Italian a few times now at my local adult education centre & found this book a great supplement to use for reviewing Italian. (For example: some of the interesting cultural tips and facts about Italy were not things that I was made aware of during my classes.)

I received this product in the mail a few days ago. I am hoping to learn enough Italian to travel to Italy in the near future. My family fluently speaks Italian and I am finding that picking up the language with my very basic understanding and this book is great. I am only on the first chapter, but I find the readability to be great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Six separate books in one bundle! Oct. 2 2013
By Richard Staats - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The Dummies' guide series has been iconic or years with good cause.

Learning a foreign language can be a challenge, but this book makes it easier to learn Italian.

The first book, "Speaking Italian in Everyday Settings," gets you speaking Italian and seeing its applications immediately. It finishes up with shopping, food, and drink.

Book two, "Exploring and Walking Around," is another primer, but its examples cover new material. Repetition of the basics is a good thing for the new language student.

The third book tackles grammar and gives the Italian student a chance to extend the specifics learned in the first two books to more general cases rather than specific situations.

Anyone who has studied Latin or French knows that moods, tensions, and declensions are where some real challenges lie for monolingual, English speakers. Fortunately, the meat of this study occurs in books four and five.

Finally, book six is the compendium of dictionaries, exercises, tables, etc.

This is a great book to take you from zero to mid-level proficiency.

In service,

5.0 out of 5 stars My Italian is improving! Oct. 31 2013
By Chris Jaronsky - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I have made a few trips to Italy for work. While most of the places I travel to put me with English speakers during the day, I like to go out and sight see after hours. I have picked up enough Italian to get by in basic situations. When I was told I am going back to Italy in a few months, I decided I wanted to interact more, and I needed to speak and understand more Italian to do that.

So far this book has been a great help. At 648 pages I have not finished it yet, but I am progressing along nicely. The book is broken down into 6 sections and each one leads nicely into the next section. That is one thing I really like about the "for dummies" series, they start you from the beginning and lead you on from there.

Now I am not sure if you can learn a language from a book because you need to hear it too. That is where the included links to the audio downloads really help. Hearing proper pronunciation really helps me with my pronunciation.

5.0 out of 5 stars All in one is right! Oct. 30 2013
By Jeanne Tassotto - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is, as described, a compilation of six books on the Italian language from the 'For Dummies' series. The beginning section/book is an appropriate starting point for some one who speaks no Italian. Each new concept is carefully explained, needed vocabulary supplied. The lessons presented cover situations that might actually really be useful - no time spent on locating the 'pen of my aunt' or interrogating chambermaids about missing brown socks. In addition to teaching about the Italian language sections concerning Italian customs, etiquette etc are also included. Just the sort of information that anyone traveling to Italy will truly need.

The second through fifth sections/books build on this foundation, introducing additional vocabulary and sentence structures in the context of plausible travel situations. The third section/book approaches the study of the language in a more formal manner, focusing on various parts of speech. Section/book four is entitled 'Mastering Italian Verbs and Tenses' which it then proceeds to cover in a very easy to follow format. The fifth section/book addresses the more complex compound tenses, again using a very logical easy to follow format. The final section/book entitled 'Appendixes' is a very useful compilation of reference materials: Verb Tables, English/Italian & Italian/English dictionaries, supplemental learning materials for the preceding chapters and a guide to the audio tracks.

Any student of the Italian language, no matter what their level of accomplishment could benefit from some part of this book. It is a very worthwhile investment for anyone ranging from a traveler preparing for their first trip to Italy to a more serious student who is seeking an easily accessible reference source.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step by step advances for beginners to knowledgeable students Sept. 22 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This particular edition of the `for Dummies' cycle is a true bargain. Yes, the book is hefty but very inexpensive for all the data that you can gain form opening the pages. There have been other volumes from the ITALIAN FOR DUMMIES book s but here the essences of each of the book previously available - Italian For Dummies, Intermediate Italian For Dummies, Italian Verbs For Dummies, Italian Phrases For Dummies, Italian Grammar For Dummies, and Italian For Dummies Audio Set.

The main reason this series works so well, especially in this incarnation, is the fact that it is geared to the practical aspects of learning a language. Yes, the essentials in grammar and sentence structure and phrasing are here - those aspects that usually we sit through a semester or two of classes to absorb. But in this book the authors know why we are turning to a fast book such as this - to learn some basics quickly so that those basics can be immediately absorbed and put to use in travel, in conversation with visitors from Italy, and for understanding instructions and business interactions that arise when you don't expect them. As promised, inside these covers are popular Italian phrases and, expressions, how to get numbers, dates, and times in line, tips for asking and answering questions, how to make Italian sentences grammatically correct, correct ways to use verbs, tenses, and moods in Italian, Italian-English and English-Italian mini-dictionaries, verb tables for conjugating commonly used verbs, and games and exercises.

In addition to the information in the book this series of books (for that is what it actually is - a series) connects us with a place on the Internet where we can hear and learn to pronounce words and sentences like a native! That is o say, no CDs here - juts plug into the ether and take the info along with you on travel, for idle hours for practice, and for brushing up what you may already have learned. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, September 13

I have a hard copy of this book and found it very helpful, but traveling and carrying a tonne of books is difficult. That is why I decided to get this version for my ipad. I am really enjoying the expanded version and it is great to have it just on the ipad. This is actually the first ebook so I am just getting used to the format.
