Publisher's Summary

What are the benefits of learning a language through text comprehension?

Improve your Italian reading and comprehension skills in an easy and fun way! When you read a new book or listen to an audiobook, you will find new words and expressions to understand and memorize. And this is even truer when the book is in a foreign language. This book of short stories in Italian will help you get acquainted with the language and learn new words and their use in certain contexts!

Learning isolated words can often be difficult as they may be more complicated to memorize. However, with this collection of short stories, you will get a chance to memorize words and learn more about Italian culture and figures of speech whilst they are inserted and are part of the context. This is a funnier and more effective way to learn!

Travel stories, Italian cuisine, whales, Alberobello, river dolphin, and so much more - thanks to this audiobook, you’ll learn about everyday activity and terms, as well as more complicated and unusual expressions.

The short stories collected in this book will help you, through listening and exercises, to learn - and more importantly, memorize - new terms, phrases, and with patience, the Italian language!

All in all- good guide.!!

This is exactly what I needed and what I expected to find. The stories are firstly told in Italian, and at the end of each story, the narrator translates the words to English; helpful to understand the context of the story.
