I'm enjoying this book and finding it very helpful

It's so challenging to find listening material to consider when learning a new language. I was delighted with this book, because even though there are many words I haven't learned yet, it is easy to figure out the meaning of each story, and finally select the unfamiliar words.

Loving stories to learn Italian.

All the stories are surprising and fun to keep you going, and the scheme is mild so that you can focus on the language.
Sentences and vocabulary are enough for starters. I found the audio records and the book, useful tools for learning.

More fun than phrase lists!

The aim is to master the language, so it's subtle as it is.
Mere stories intended to interject phrases that are beneficial for everyone.

Simple yet interesting and enjoyable

It assisted me a lot. I'm going to have to listen to it to practice the words I learned and to determine the words that I didn't.

The stories kept my interest

Engaging storylines - non-typical to be sure - but still a great help in learning Italian.
I highly recommend this to anyone in the late-beginner or middle stages of learning Italian.

Very good way to learn the language!

I love this book. The stories are just challenging enough to be of educational value but easy enough that you can still stay interested in the story even if you don't understand every word.

Great for listening comprehension

I like the fact that the listener understands Italian grammar and verb tenses. The listening is widespread just as short stories should maintain.
