This review is from: 15-Minute Italian: Learn Italian in just 15 minutes a day (Eyewitness Travel 15-Minute Language Packs) (Audio CD)
I travel to italy quite frequently and so decided to learn a little italian. This is a great little book to help you on your way has many practicle conversation techniques to help you. It contains the engish word then the corresponding italian translation but most importantly the way you pronounce it in italian.You will soon learn that how somthing is spelt in italian is not the way it is pronounced. I think learning a second language today is not too bad a thing besides that many italians speak english so using this book is as a get by aid is a great start for learning a language. I will question the title 15 minute(a day) italian as either its designed for people who have a natural understanding of languages but for me its not 15 minutes as its quite a different language mainly when it comes to male and female also the tone of voice like raising the voice to indicate its now a question sort of thing.It's like oh deary me another rule to try remember but all i can say is stick it in your pocket( its not bulky) and when you get a chance in your busy life style take out the book and practice. A great little tool to get you started.
