5.0 out of 5 stars Cazzo, che figata! Non ci sto dentro!
Bello, bello, BELLO!
A MUST HAVE!

With this book you'll neer feel alone!
It's really true: Italian must be learned in this way, or you'll be outcast from "normal" people. No-one talks like one is tought at school: that's just in the TV News and synchronised (foreign) movies where the standard language is used.

Careful though about the use...

3.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Italian -American?
Quite amusing translations in places but like a lot of this type of book too many American words and phrases. Really most useful for when you are on the receiving end of 'Dirty Italian' as using Italian as a foreigner is difficult to use appropriately and may lead to some unpleasant confrontation. Best seen as amusement rather than education.

Careful though about the use of badwords or blasphemes that could be very offensive to certain individuals.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Italian: Beyond Cazzo: The Curses, Slang, and Street Lingo You Need to Know When You Speak Italiano (Talk Dirty) (Paperback)
Good fun. I would recommend it for anyone studying Italian that was a little bored with regular speaking and was looking for a little entertainment.

Will be a little trcky for some as it doesn't have phonetics.
