Publisher's Summary

Do you know what's the most popular, breakthrough way of learning a new language nowadays? There's something that's for sure: you already know it isn't common, old-fashioned type of language learning books. Those are incredibly boring and outdated. But there's so much more than that. Today, the most popular, hustle-free way of learning a foreign language is this: by reading short stories, fun tales, and captivating narratives that keep you hooked from beginning to end.

Do we have your attention already? Great. Because that's exactly what this book is about.

Captivating stories + Italian language = learn faster.

The best thing about using short stories to learn foreign languages is that you actually learn without realizing you're doing it. Think for a second, when was the last time you learned something new without much effort on your part? When was the last time you actually enjoyed the learning process and were eager to keep advancing, page after page, having fun the whole time? Most likely than not, it's tough to recall feeling like that. That's why learning Italian with short stories is catching up so much momentum lately: it works, it's fun, and it's pretty much hustle-free.

In this volume you'll find eight exciting short stories intended for beginners and low intermediate Italian learners. They've been prepared for A1, A2, and B1 levels of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference). Your just have to focus on one story at a time and start listening. The stories deal around multiple genres, including mystery, adventure, fantasy, and romance and take place in Italy. We've prepared these tales to keep you entertained and motivated to continue listening until the very end of each story.

    Story
    "I thought Italian is a difficult language to learn"
    What made the experience of listening to Italian Short Stories for Beginners the most enjoyable?

    The stories of course. I chose this audiobook because I know I would enjoy listening to new stories while learning this language.


    What does Susana Larraz and Carmen Lov bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The story would probably be boring if it wasn't narrated by them :)


    Any additional comments?

    perfect stars! hope they create more audibles like this but in different language
