Value for Money??nh,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Modern Italian Grammar Workbook (Routledge Modern Grammars) (Paperback)
I purchased this workbook together with its sister publication ''Modern'' Italian Grammar but was disappointed. My feeling is that it is somewhat overpriced and is not as useful as it first appears. It covers many levels of ability which is not physically possible in the 100 pages (including answers) and is not a book to use alone as a means of improving your italian. The excercises are split into Language Structures, Expressing Needs and Short Scenes but if you are following a separate evening class or general book aimed at learning Italian the excercises which might be applicable at any specific stage are not easy to find. Perhaps because of that and certainly as a beginner I was unable to find a clear means of progressing through the book and was not able to use it to effectively complement the evening class I was attending. As a result it ended up more often than not on the shelf. If you however you are studying intensively via another means or have the money to blow just to double-check what you are learning elsewhere and just want some additional excercises focused explicitly on grammar it might be worth considering.
