Overview

Learn Italian step-by-step and soon you'll be making leaps and bounds

Your quickest route to learning Italian is through a solid grounding in grammar basics. Now don't be put off by the "G-word." What you won't find in this book is a lot of repetitive drills. Instead, you get an original, step-by-step approach to learning Italian based on the way people naturally acquire language.

    Not bad for the price.

    I am being tutored in Italian and this book was recommended by my tutor.

    Although the book introduces the relevant topics clearly, I find there are many typos, contradictions and wrong answers in the answer key which can be frustrating to those beginning a new language. It doesn't seem that this book has been edited. There are better books out there.
