Publisher's Summary

Are you bored with the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Italian? Are you bored with all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn Italian and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is!

The best way to learn Italian is by listening to short stories. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start. And that's exactly why we created this book. We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning in a certain context (for example, a short story).

Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Italian language. Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn Italian without even realizing you're learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time (they only a take few minutes to listen to). The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, and romance. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

    That was best way to learn Italian. It has short stories in Italian with questions and there were English summary to gauge better understanding. Plus, the short stories have different genres. Over all, it was great experience.

    What I liked best from this audiobook is that the narrator narrates the stories slowly and clearly which makes it easy to understand for us who aren't very good yet in Italian language.

    "Best way to learn"
    Any additional comments?

    When it comes to audio book, voice matters. I like the way it was delivered and listened again to familiarize myself with the words again and again until I learned it finally.

    Hearing words and phrases over and over is the best way to learn.

    Any additional comments?

    I like the way it was delievered. It's worth listening to this audio book while I am on travel. The voice was nice, too. Just in time cause in a few months, will have another business trip. So better equipped myself with the langauge so I would have the convenience of having no interpreter while on travel.

    "it definitely increases my vocabulary."
    Any additional comments?

    I started learning Italian a few days ago, and I love it. I finally found this book that I think will cater to my beginner's needs for now, It has very basic, simple children's stories in Italian. When I play audio, I hear a lady reading the story very slowly in Italian, and after each paragraph there's an English translation. There are a lot of words I don't know, but they're easy to google, and it definitely increases my vocabulary.
