get a chance pick up a copy and enjoy.

The voice-over performer was quite fluent and very good and patient when he was going back and forth with the easy translations and what they mean. So when you get a chance pick up a copy and enjoy.

4 out of 5 stars!

Language skills are difficult to obtain from written books, and I think audiobooks are a much better format. This series of short stories is a fantastic way to pass my commute. Highly recommended.

It is also easy to navigate

I bought this to start brushing up on my Italian for an upcoming trip. It was relatively easy to listen despite not having used Italian in about 5 years. The harder words are highlighted with a definition at the end of the short story. It is also easy to navigate.

I really enjoyed listening these stories!

I have really enjoyed listening these stories! The dictionaries at the end of each story are so helpful! They give you the answer of what the words are, but it also makes you try and figure it out based on context clues and such. The questions after each story really test comprehension and it encourages you to look back at the story and translate again.
