Great Quick Learn for travel

Would you consider the audio edition of Learn Italian - Survival Phrases Italian, Volume 1 to be better than the print version?

I don't know but probably, since you can hear the phrases pronounced!

Any additional comments?

This audiobook moves at just the right pace and is pretty fun. It probably helps to have a little knowledge of Italian and/or a phrasebook handy so you can also see the words and phrases. For just a few hours of recording, this was pretty comprehensive of what you need to know to survive traveling in Italy, and my husband and I got around Rome for 8 days just fine after listening to this audiobook before we left.

Worked for me

This really did teach me almost everything I needed to know to spend three weeks in Italy. The phrases "is there a ______ near here?" and "Where is the_____?" and "How much does this/that cost?" and all of the pleases, thank yous, and good evenings were the most helpful. Most of the other lessons were used occasionally and helped me to understand the responses by training my ear to catch what people are saying. The first few listens I could barely identify individual words. This tutorial was well worth the time and money.

Also note that not "everybody" speaks English in Italy. Our first morning at our first hotel near the Florence Airport met with a hotel desk attendant who didn't speak a word of English. I was able to ask her where I could buy a bus ticket and find a bus stop nearby and ask for a restaurant recommendation. Yay! Highly recommended if you are traveling around by train and bus sans tour group. You will need something more if you are conducting business.
