For auditory learners of language

The audiobook is structured by the number of the listing, eg “1” or “326” of 2000, then the word is stated. The word is said slowly in a sentence, then the sentence is said again quickly. Then, the English sentence is provided. You will get the most out of this book if you follow the tips in chapter two, particularly trying to write as you listen. This book is not made for passive listening, but it can be a very useful tool for serious learners

Great option for someone with basic Italian study

Great audio book for someone with basic Italian comprehension. You do not need to be fluent in Italian to use this book, but I would recommend having a basic foundation before diving into this audio book. You're presented with a lot of material fast, and as a vocabulary builder, this is exactly what you want to speak more fluently.

You'll be greeted with both an Italian phrase and an English equivalent.

Edoardo speaks slowly and clearly so that you can understand each key word you're learning. Overall, this is a great audio book that will pair well with a grammar book. Once you learn how to conjugate words properly, you'll be well on your way to speaking with Italian speakers with a vast vocabulary thanks to this book.

It's a barrage

This was too difficult for me to follow. They dive right into a list of words and go through the examples so quickly that it is too difficult to follow. I gave up after giving it several sessions.

Many inaccuracies and incomplete translations

Had I not had a basic understanding of Italian and used this book as an actual learning tool, I would have made many mistakes when speaking Italian. For example, the word "dovresti" means you (informal) would have to. Instead, the narrator said this word means you would have, which is very different than you would have to (or must). This is just one of many examples of inaccurate translations. In other cases, the translator used synonyms rather than translating words precisely. If I hadn't already understood the words, I would have learned an incorrect translation. Throughout the entire book, the narrator didn't take the time to explain the tense of verbs. For example, the narrator said "ho" means have. This is an incomplete translation as "ho" means "I have". Similarly, he said "abbiamo" means "have" when abbiamo actually means "we have".

There were some useful translations and this book may be helpful in reinforcing previously learned vocabulary. I would only suggest this book for those who already have an intermediate understanding of the language and who could discern and not be confused by the inaccuracies.

excellent practice for intermediate level speakers

this language book is much better than most that you will find. usually, it is just dumb sentences you will never use. the speaker sounds like a natural Italian speaker, not some English guy trying to speak with a forced accent. my only complaint would be to say the sentence in English first, then repeat the Italian. I will recommend this. look forward to more from this author/publisher.

Great listening practice

This audio book is perfect for squeezing a few minutes of study in while doing something else. The way the book is set up, students can commit as much or as little time as they’d like. I like to listen and repeat the sentences while doing my makeup, walking my dog, making coffee. One great way to use this book is to listen to the Italian and write down what you think you hear. Then, check your Italian against the translation and actual sentences. This will help with comprehension and vocabulary acquisition. A helpful study tool.

Easy way to increase your vocabulary in Italian!

First time using Lingo Mastery to up my Italian language mastery game. Really enjoyed the lessons. Familiarized myself with practical terms that I will likely use myself when I'm in Italy! Would recommend!

Different than the others

I have several lingo mastery audiobooks and imo they are a great tool that takes you beyond where almost every other audiobook leaves off. I’ve been self teaching myself Italian for about 2.5 years and I found that there is a trove of beginner level material that all teaches the same basics. The lingo mastery audiobooks take you beyond what everyone else provides and it also introduces you to many other more advanced words by offering real world, realistic, adult level example sentences that are spoken quickly and slowly by a native speaker. 10 out of 10. Would recommend.

Great for Learning Italian

This is a very useful book for beginners and intermediate learners of the Italian language. It covers a wide span of the Italian vocabulary, which can significantly improve progress in conversational skills. While some people might be able to grasp each word and their meaning on the first listen (in the context presented), it might be better to listen to each word usage about 2-3 times to fully master it's meaning and usage. Just like I experienced, with consistent practice and conversation with Italian speakers, mastery of the Italian language is not far off. Good book.

I recieved a free copy of this book, and have voluntarily left this review as a guide for others.

This book truly delivers.

I am glad I got this book, it has really helped my Italian within a short span of time. There is a general saying about how listening to a native speaker can improve pronunciation, while learning a lot of language vocabulary can improve comprehension. This I found to be true, as this book offers both. As promised, 2000 common words (I did not count specifically, although I'll approximate as such) used in various context of everyday interaction. I followed all the word usage via the accompanying Pdf, along with the English translations.
I'll keep listening, till my comprehension and pronunciation is flawless. Also, I look forward to other similar books on Italian from this author.

I got a free copy of this book, and I have decided to leave a review of my experience.

It's about more than 2000 words

I'm at intermediate level in Italian and am finding this audiobook very useful. It is not suitable for a total beginner. But for someone who already knows a fair bit of Italian, it's great for expanding vocabulary and getting better at following what native Italians say. It's not so much about learning the most common words, I think I'll know most of them, it's more about hearing those words spoken in context by a native Italian. This helps you understand when to use each word and how. Another great thing is that each contextual sentence is first said very slowly and then faster, which is brilliant practice for learning to follow Italians when they are speaking quite fast.

Very useful

I have got a lot from this the audio and have not found anything else that does quite the same job. I listen to the audio in the car or when i’m cooking for example, and am working through the written book by writing the phrases out a few times without looking at them. The translation are sometimes a little odd but the great thing is the words are current and relate to things you will really talk about. The audio doesn’t go on for too long before you get the English translation so it really helps to imbed the new words in your brain. I would love it more if the numbers were in italian to help me get used to hearing them.
