OK but where is the Italian-English vocabulary?
on 31 March 2013
This course is OK for beginners, especially if your main aim is to learn some straightforward Italian for travel purposes. But it has two main drawbacks. The first, and biggest, is that this 2012 edition lacks an Italian-English vocabulary: it has only English-Italian. And this despite the fact that the main text refers to an Italian-English vocabulary. Something has clearly gone badly wrong in the production of the book, and it means the book will need to be supplemented by a dictionary. It is a major irritation. The second is that the Italian in the audio is surrounded by too much English.
