Publisher's Summary

Are you bored with the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn Italian? Are you bored with all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn Italian and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is!
The best way to learn Italian is by listening to short stories. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start. And that's exactly why we created this book. We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning in a certain context (for example, a short story).
Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the Italian language. Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn Italian without even realizing you're learning it! Your goal is to simply focus on a single story at a time (they only a take few minutes to listen to). The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, and romance. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?
