A book providing the most frequent words used in a language is potentially one of the most helpful aids you could have when learning a language. I have previously used Latin Key Words in this series, and this Italian one suffers from some of the same drawbacks I have listed there - indeed it is probably a little worse than the Latin volume in some respects.

So by giving il/la/lo ('the'), lo/la ('he', 'she'), ragazzo/ragazza, bambino/bambina etc. as separate entries which should really have been given together, the book is in effect padding out and reducing on the 2000 words.

It is said that everyday English uses around 4000 words. Whether the same applies in other languages I don't know, but 2000 words, which when taking into account the aforementioned issue will be less, doesn't seem quite enough.

I think for this work to be a genuinely great learning aid it needs more and better arranged content. That's not to say don't buy it. It will indeed be useful to the learner and I would recommend beginners to get it to assist in speeding progress by building a vocabulary of common words, but it's not as useful as it could have been.

If you are learning Italian you need this book. It list all the Italian vocabulary you need by the incidence of how often the word occurs in the language. A fantastic way to learn the words that come up the most often.

I have recently started learning Italian and this book has already been very helpful
It shows the most common words by units - ie., Unit 1 starts with some of the most common words you might use when starting to learn to speak Italian. It shows all sorts of words - it might be nouns, adjectives, verbs or pronouns. There is no pattern as such - just lists of common words in Italian on the left hand side of the page with the english translation on the right hand side. A very useful aid at an affordable price for the purpose for which it has been produced.

I am going to Rome in the summer and wanted to be understood and to understand basic Italian. It will be really useful having key words on my phone. I think learning key words will give me the confidence I need to know I will be able to converse with locals which will make my holiday more enjoyable and memorable
