Back to basics,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Teach Yourself Italian New Edition (TYCC) (Paperback)
Having studied Italian in depth in high school in Australia and having not used it for five years I decided to try this book to get back in touch with it. I have lost count of the times i've been in work and ended up serving customers on the till who speak Italian and wished I could confidently talk back.
I have to be honest lost complete lack of confidence in speaking it and thus resolved to start to re-learn it from basics, and with this book it has so far been very smooth. The book makes it very easy to pick up and the audio CD's just plainly listened to will quicken the process, the lessons are straightforward and for the price I have certainly not seen better.
My re-learning it has no doubt been much easier than learning from scratch and it may be a good idea for beginners to have one or two lessons with a teacher to get a taste for the language before trying to self teach themselves.
