Extremely Helpful 22 Mar. 2006

This is a great book. I am trying to improve my Italian by reading articles on the web. Baffling phrasing is frequently clarified, with precision, in this reference work. The section on prepositions alone is worth the money.

Using Italian: A Guide to Contemporary Usage 29 Jan. 2006
By Riitta M. Andonian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent for someone who already has at least minimum knowledge of the language. It gives a precise range of application and culturally sensitive extension to each term. I have the Spanish and Portuguese books of the series and they all are great learning tools.

I wish I had found this a few years ago 10 Nov. 2009

This book is like the "missing manual" of Italian. So much great content that normally only comes with experience, this is a must for anyone seriously studying this great language.
