I have several reference books for Italian and this one is my favorite because it is succinct, delightful, fits easily in my handbag and contains much more than just a bunch of phrases. My goal is to be able to communicate in Italian, and I want to learn the language rather than just look up/memorize canned phrases. It is useful for quickly looking up how to say something, but what I like best is that it also teaches the basic structure and other language elements that give me more confidence in constructing my own phrases. Ms. Euvino took all the most useful parts of a full Italian language course textbook and put them into this handy pocket guide. It is a wonderful learning companion - bellissimo!
Good info and good price. Useful to study the frequently used words and phrases. Politeness and respect are universal in all cultures. Thank you.
Just downloaded this on laptop and android phone and it is almost useless on both, because all of the phrases, verb charts, etc are image files that are too small to read. The regular text explaining the language, and the dictionary are fine, but as there is no way to enlarge the text in the tables (must be image files), you literally need a magnifying glass to see them. Worse, some are sideways oriented 180 in wrong direction and cannot be rotated. Someone should have checked this before marketing as an e-book. It is probably fine in print. Just requested a refund- first e-book I have bought that is not readable on my android phone, or even laptop.
Found it difficult to use and wound up just reverting to Google Translate.
Going to Italy and this book will save me from making a fool of myself! Covers everything you could ever need to know when in Italy.
For someone who knows she won't learn the language, this booklet will be an easy-carry resource when I'm not sure how to communicate to our Italian people. Really like it.
This is a light-duty phrase book with a pretty good glossary/dictionary. I haven't traveled with it yet, but it is what I think of as a useful handy resource to supplement electronic resources. Glad I got it.
Fun as well as comprehensive...
