This is not a book for a beginner however it is really good at using 'real' italian conversation and reading.
You can dip in and out of this book, there is no need to slog from page 1 onwards.
Well written. The CD is particularly usieful for getting the correct pronounciation as well as building vocabulary.

A wide variety of articles on different topics to aid reading comprehension and build up vocabulary.
Vocabulary list at the side of page really helps the student to read the passage quicker.
The comprehension questions are too superficial.
Useful self study tool for Intermediate- advanced students

Very informative and interesting insight into italian views, customs and culture. You do however need a dictionary as the book itself is not adequate, and a magnifying glass as the print is faint and tiny in places.
All in all an excellent buy but definitely not for complete beginners.

The idea is attractive: articles in Italian with translations for the words and phrases you don't know. Perfect for helping you develop your learning.
Do you spot the problem there?
Yeah, lots of words I do know are translated, and several I don't aren't.

This book and CD are worth having if you wish to begin learning Italian. Should you be up to, say second term, it will be a little basic. However, it is a good system to have to remind oneself of the basic grounding to learn the Italian language.

This is the book that gives you a good read. The vocabulary is written down the sides of the pages all through the book which is an enormous help in comprehension of the text. The book was in great condition and arrived promptly.
Thanks.

I bought this for two of my adult Italian learning students and they gave found it very useful. They find that it is a perfect wary to help them at home without infringing too much on their time. Very clear and well presented.

The passages are all one or two pages long with useful vocabulary listed at the side of the page. I find it's a great book to dip into when I have half an hour to spare and it is increasing my vocabulary.

A good book that with the CD makes it easier to learn about the Italian language. Some times the harder words are not outlined but not a big problem. Also very educational about the Italian Culture.

This book is actually too advanced for me but, for someone with little knowledge of Italian, it provides a good way to increase your vocabularly and listening to the CD is really helpful too.
