Good recording

The audio itself is quite helpful for basic travel Italian. The pamphlet is absolutely worthless. It is just a table of contents and a list of other titles available from the publisher. I did find this to be a good starting point to learning Italian but I wish there was a transcript to follow along with.

Easy learning

It was better than I thought. If you listen to this a few times you will certainly pick up some words and sentences. I was quite surprised

Italian made easy

Where does Italian in 40 Minutes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is one of the best audio books I have listened to so far, I have other language course audio books but I really felt that I could construct a sentence right after this one. I feel more confident now with my Italian.

If you’ve listened to books by Collins before, how does this one compare?

I haven't listened to another Collins book.

Which character – as performed by Collins – was your favourite?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Any additional comments?

I got audible so that I could get language and lifestyle books. I have been very happy with my choice.

A great intro to Italian

Very useful for learning the basics quickly but efficiently. This is a good pronunciation supplement to a phrasebook.

Great value for money.

A very good intro to Italian! Pleasing voices to listen to... I will buy more in the same series.
