one of the best learning tools yet

The audio was overall of good quality. The narrator was clear and precise in the enunciation of the words. Catching the titles of each story was easy to understand overall. (I.e. The old drunkard, find a billion on a cruise, etc.)

I would rather use a longer story with only a few of them, rather then more smaller ones. The book comes with questions to answer to further help you along with the learning process, which is a great bonus for anyone trying to learn a new language.

The stories are brilliant in learning phrasing since it helps to put the wordsin a more natural sentence then simple word learning.

Overall I like this idea to learn a language better since it don't just teach the simple words, but the phrasing and content as well, which is very important in a conversation.

Fun and accessible way to learn Italian

This is a great tool for people who already have some knowledge of Italian language as well as beginners who would like to sharpen their listening and broaden their vocabulary in Italian. I have a background in language learning so it was convenient and easy for me to use through Audible while on the way to work or on a break at lunch. There is a very helpful PDF to follow along with that includes vocabulary, and made it really easy to go over what I didn't understand and then practice again. I loved that I could listen to the stories because that way I knew the correct pronunciation and tone to use. I really enjoyed learning in this way and found it to be pretty fun!
