15-Minute Italian
15-Minute Italian
by Francesca Logi
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful in addition to other language guides, 20 Jun. 2013

This review is from: 15-Minute Italian (Paperback)
This has it good points. For example, it is good for using in a spare 15 minutes when waiting in the car. The early sections I found were more relevant for the tourist Itlaian vocabulary I was hoping to acquire. I would take the book on holiday with me as there is a good vocab at the back and useful phrases throughout. I found some of the non-Italian commentary a bit irksome, but all in all useful enough for what is was intended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Full and comprehensive, 20 May 2013

I think this is a very well written and presented course. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 for two reasons. I am attending a holiday Italian class where this text book was recommended, I would find the book alone difficult without the backup of the classroom situation. Because of attending the class, I did not purchase the CDs, but I think the accompnaying CDs would be really helpful if not attending a class.
The book is well laid out and very clear, and certainly has helped give me more confidence both to try out, and to understand Italian when I visit later this year.

This is excellent for my Samsung 7" Galaxy tablet. It looks good, is robust and protects the tablet. The images on the Amazon site show its versatility. Great, just what was needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous!, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this tablet, I have given it 5 stars, but the 7" size may not be for everyone. I find it compact and easy to slip into a handbag, some may feel choosing a smaller screen size compromises the viewing screen unacceptably.
It was so easy to start using and the range of apps is very good. This is my first tablet, I do not even have a smartphone, so this was a move into new territory. However, it has been so easy to use with no major issues at all. I would recommend this without any hesitiation whatsoever.

This is a beautiful book in all senses of the word. The collected writings alongwith the illustrations bring hope and peace. It is a book for picking up and almost every page brings reassurance although I have some favourites!

5.0 out of 5 stars A reading for every day., 5 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Margaret Silf was recommended to me and this book seemed to stand out on Amazon's page. It is still very early in the year, but I am getting a lot out of the daily readings and Silf's interpretations of the scripture. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who needs some help with the daily discipline of reading God's word.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice gift, 5 Jan. 2012

Can't say anything about how well the pen works as it was a gift, but it looked good, (the crystal helps,) and it arrived promptly, was well packaged and the engraving was well done.

Have wanted one of these for absolutely ages. Cannot think why I did not buy one before! They are so simple and easy to use. All attachments are so well thought out and they all fit inside the bowl so I do not feel it instrusive to have it sitting on my worktop. Have not bought the cover yet, but probably a good idea to do so.

Used this useful book for the few days we spent in Barcelona. It was an easy size to carry around and covered key points about the city. I do not think one book can every cover everything you would want but I did not really feel the need for much extra info. The small map of the transport system was also very handy.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this on a friend's recommendation. I was hooked from the very beginning with the good characterisations and many twists and turns in the plot. I have since bought the other two books, still have the third one to read and almost do not want to start it as, sadly, there are no more to look forward to.
