• Explanations of grammar and usage
• Short quizzes to help you check your progress

3.0 out of 5 stars Instead of this book, how about.... 23 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Seems to be va bene, perhaps if purchased alone, more as a refresher??
I've read other rewiews from other sites, and it seems that the CD lessons don't always match what the book is reading.
I would suggest "The Everything Learning Italian Book" (speak, write, and understand basic Italian in no time) By Michael P. San Filippo, it's what I'm using currently, and I have learned a lot in, well, no time!! (as it promises!)
I've even had trouble with things such as verbs, adverbs, ajectives and the such, in English!! And I speak English! lol but this book even took care of my probs with this language, and I'm excelling greatly in Italian so well, I've even impressed myself! (not to mention my fiance' who's Sicilian).
So although it may be ok as a refresher, or a book to keep on hand (since it's smaller) for words you're stumped on, I'd still suggest the above, it's affordable wherever you purchase it, and extremely helpful as well.
