But there is an important upside: all of these books contain language that is kept within close limits for learners of about A-level standard, and some serious consolidation is possible using them. And my reason for buying the three Italian volumes now is simply that over the last 10 years I've concentrated on Latin and Spanish and neglected Italian badly, so, before going on to harder stuff, I thought I'd revise my Italian. So I recommend these books, on the whole, even though I only give them three stars, but try not to let them put you off literature!
*Added: Perhaps I spoke a little too soon about the language being kept within close limits. I've just read the Gadda story in the Italian book - note to Penguin: Italian interspersed with Latin is not the most useful material for someone wanting to learn Italian!

Not as good as the earlier book I had some years ago. Also, the print is smaller. Miserable, depressing Canadian stories and really weird tra nslations. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Byzantia
