Format: Paperback
This is broken down really well for you and is basically part book- part workbook. There are plenty of activities to take part in to help you learn this language. However it doesn't get a five because it doesn't come with a tape, though 4 are available to go with it for over 30 dollars. Also, you only learn present and imperative tenses, which may have been more complicated to learn but it should be in there if you want to concern yourself with it. It is really informative and amusing and holds your attention. It does this by keeping the lessons quick and to the point with a little humor here and there. Remember that Learning Italian and learning Italian for sake of a quick bout of tourism ''just enough'' to get by... very different things. As for just the bout of tourism, this is more than enough to get you by and would work great. As for grasping the whole language, if you really feel you need to... you'd not only need the past tense and so on, but you'd definetely need alot of cassettes for example and the ability to read whole paragraphs with ease. This won't get you there, but it'll teach you the basic language.

This book is colorful, but you really need to purchase the book as part of the set with the tapes so that you are able to hear the correct pronunciations. The book and tapes cover the basics for people who are planning to travel to Italy for vacation, and it starts from the very beginning with pronunciations and greetings. There are places in the book for you to practice your Italian writing skills without "drilling" you to sleep. There are puzzle games in the book, as well. The book covers basic grammar and basic vocabularly.

This book was used as the text for a "Conversational Italian" class I took. There are a few small errors in the book, typos and such, which the teacher was aware of. (Nothing that will get you in trouble.) Its big selling point is that it is mostly aimed at tourists, making it a good choice for people whose main purpose in learning Italian is to get along while traveling.

It`s a pretty clear and informative Italian course for beginners - a good combination of basic grammar and useful vocabulary. Though it`s still better to use some audio course I would still recommend this one.
