Publisher's Summary

As society becomes more global, you should equip yourself with knowledge of foreign languages. What better language to start with than Italian?

Whether you are planning to go on a trip to Italy, or you simply want to gain a better understanding of Italian culture, mastering the Italian language would allow you to explore more, and become immersed with everything this country has to offer. The great thing is, you are not starting from scratch. Italian words have been adapted into other languages due to the wide reach of its culture and cuisine.

Written primarily for beginners, the content of this book is divided into chapters dedicated to essential grammar rules and useful vocabularies for every scenario.

  • The Italian Alphabet

Learn the similarities and differences between the standard English alphabet and the Italian alphabet.

  • The Italian Accent and Pronunciation

Find out how to properly pronounce Italian words by learning which syllables must be stressed.

  • Genders of Noun

Italian nouns can take on either a masculine or feminine form. Discover the rules that must be followed, and how these rules are applied to assign the correct Italian terms for different countries and nationalities.

  • Articles

Find out how the unassuming Italian indefinite and definitive articles can influence and alter the meaning of the message you are trying to convey.

  • Pronouns

Pronouns, like nouns, are gendered parts of speech. Learn which pronoun should be used to improve the way you write and converse with others.

  • Adjectives

Discover the different rules applied to Italian adjectives compared to English adjectives. You would also find in this chapter the Italian terms used to describe various colors and color-related concepts.

  • Verbs

Learn how Italians conjugate their verbs with articles and pronouns. Though typically in the active voice, sentences can also take a passive form by adjusting the conjugations of the verbs. Moreover, the Italians have also developed an interesting way of turning their sentences into the negative form through simple conjugation. Learn how to do this and more in this chapter.

  • Prepositions

Much like their English counterparts, the Italian prepositions are essential for providing additional information to an otherwise vague sentence. Master the eight primary Italian prepositions by discovering their various forms and functions.

  • Useful Vocabularies

Hundreds of essential Italian terms, phrases, and expressions can be found in the latter chapters of this book. You will surely find one that would prove useful to you as you continue to immerse yourself in the Italian culture. Ranging from common greetings and goodbyes to ordering your favorite food, from figuring out your way in a foreign city to calling out for help in times of medical emergencies, the sets of vocabularies provided in each chapter are all worth the time it would take for you to memorize these important Italian words.

Focus on building up your vocabulary and practicing both spoken and written Italian words. This book would prove its worth as your handy companion on your way to mastering the Italian language.

Definitely You Need It To Know About Italian

I found that the book’s grammar explanations were clear and i found all the answer of my question regarding this. I kept using the book, as the practice suggestions were often good; I simply always went over what I had learned with a teacher or language exchange partner, which is, in any case and with any learning book, a best practice.

Huge Language Skill Confidence Booster

I started listening in Italian with the first book. It was a bit over my head. This collection of short stories, however, is at exactly the right level for me. I especially appreciated the author's instruction on how to listen in a foreign language: now, even all book is within reach.Great language learning approach.

Questions You Must Ask Before Learn Italian

This book provides lots of f practice for just about any subject in Italian grammar for the lower-to-upper intermediate learner. This book is best because this book offered too many opportunities for practice for me, this book has tons. This thankfully works out too great in general, as English and Italian both use of many of the same tenses and parts of speech.

Great Tips To Learn & Speak Italy

I loved learning Italian slang and informal vocabulary as it improves the quality and feel of interactions in the language. That said, as soon as you learn an expression used by Italians in one sociology-economic group, region or group of friends, you often find that others think it’s pass, wrong or ridiculous.

This is a perfect guide for beginners

Definitely my favorite language learning tool. This product does a really good job of teaching you how to listen, audio, and speak the language. The pronunciation and quizzes really help a lot. This is more of an independent learning guide for people who don't mind studying on their own as oppose to having a live teacher or dialogue.
