Easy Learning Jun 4, 2008
Just purchased this book and what a fun way to learn Italian! It is easy and you'll actually learn while having fun. The stickers included with this are now all over our house...even our dog sports an "il cane" sticker on the reverse side of his name tag!!
A Bit Misleading ... Mar 26, 2008
I somehow thought this book also came with CDs to help learn Italian. I was surprised to receive only the book in the shipment. Upon re-reading the description, the CDs are extra.
Italian on 10 minutes a day Sep 23, 2007
Italian on 10 Minutes A Day is simply outstanding. Easy to understand (and use) it gave me/us the basics needed to interact with our hosts throughout Italy. When one can purchase food, drink, lodging and a variety of retail 'treasures' without the fear inherant in foreign travel (at least related to language) one can enjoy more of what the culture has to offer.
Phonetic Learning Aug 22, 2007
I love Kristine K. Kershul language products. Not only are the words written out they also provide how to pronounce them, as well as listening to learn. Lot of little activities to integrate what you have learned.
For the beginner, it makes it fun and easy. Aug 9, 2007
We use this book for some beginners in Italian. It gets a person started, then he or she can move on to something more challenging.
