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!

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.

I'm in love!

If you could sum up Italian Short Stories for Beginners in three words, what would they be?

Easy. Fun. Interesting.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a great learning tool for those who have some knowledge of the Italian language and want more tools to further their knowledge! In the beginning, there's an English introduction explaining what to expect from the audiobook. They helpefully offer the use of flashcards in a PDF to have both visual and audio, which is wonderful as knowing the proper spelling and sentence structure is important to fully grasp a language.

I am a huge fan of how easy it was to access this audio through Audible at any given time of the day, such as on breaks or during the commute to work! I especially appreciate how clear the audio is, and how easy the speakers are to follow along with.

What does Eddie Pez and Jessica Muraca bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You hear the proper pronunciation of each word and how the sentences flow together. They also make the story interesting to read with rhythm and emotion.

Flashcards Included

I just wanted to add that Jessica Muraca reads the vocabulary words at the end of the book in Italian and in English (they're flashcards, I think), so that's an interesting feature to look out for.

Excellen Supplement to Anyone Learning Italian

What did you love best about Italian Short Stories for Beginners?

It's great you can follow along in a pdf so you can not only see the word but hear its' pronunciations. It has plenty of content and what seemed to be mini questions as well to quiz the reader.
It's really a great resource for anyone at any non native level of italian language acquisition. You hear two different voices and so much from seeing example sentences and applications of it. It's a brush up on vocab for more advanced speakers, and cements sentence structure for beginners as well as vocab.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Italian Short Stories for Beginners?

The mini quiz secetions are great for comprehension and I appreciate their inclusion.

Which character – as performed by Eddie Pez and Jessica Muraca – was your favorite?

The pronunciation and listening component. It's one thing to read a language and another thing to hear it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, it's more of a section at a time book.
It's a learning supplement and not a novel.

Excellent job! Come out with one in german please!

Perfect audio for Italian!!!

Any additional comments?

This audio book was extremely easy to use. The repetition of words as well as the pronunciation made it very easy to understand and use. I loved the fact that short stories were used so that you never got bored or lost. This book is perfect for learning the language better since it includes a visual aid to go along with the audio book.

Very Effective Teaching Tool

Where does Italian Short Stories for Beginners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I’m a student who’s attempting to learn Italian, and I found this to be a wonderful tool. The narrators are very relaxing, and the stories are very clearly read. I find this method of learning to be kind of a “brute force” method, but combined with other teaching services like Duolingo and a personal drive to learn the language, I’d say brute force is the way to go. To me, it’s as close of an experience you can get to just going to Italy, and I’ve been to Italy before. It’s very convenient to be able to access the book at any time through audible, and I really enjoy taking breaks from work to immerse myself in the language. It’s definitely necessary to use supplementary material provided with the book in your more active listening sessions

loved it.

As a language enthusiast, I thoroughly enjoyed these stories; I felt like this was the best way to learn. The stories were interesting and also easy to follow the pronunciation was meticulous which made it possible to learn new words and also understand how to conjugate a sentence. The most effective feature was how all the difficult words were translated and repeated, this helped in learning and memorizing those words and ultimately building a better vocabulary. Overall I felt like this was a great learning experience

Very Enjoyable Way of learning Italian!

What did you love best about Italian Short Stories for Beginners?

I have always been interested in learning Italian and I feel as if these short stories are the perfect way to dive straight into the Italian language. This audio book was easy to follow and is convenient to listen to on a drive or waiting around. It's the perfect length of time to fit in learning daily. I love the idea of using an audio book for learning so that you can hear the exact pronunciation of words in their language versus trying to learn from a book.The audio flashcards were also very helpful in the repetition of learning certain words. I would suggest going through these a few times if you are a true beginner. I found this to be a very enjoyable way of learning the Italian language.

Great Way To Learn the Language!

What did you love best about Italian Short Stories for Beginners?

The pdf file given to aid in the learning process and the clear wording of the instructor.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Italian Short Stories for Beginners?

The translations in Section 15-on.

Any additional comments?

Italian Short Stories for Beginners is and incredible helper to learn Italian. Not only was the language spoken in clear, concise wording, but when the translation flashcards began in Section 15, I was able to remember what I heard and compare it to the language spoken. On top of that, the added pdf was extremely helpful for my visual learning to really get this down. Now I really can learn something I've always wanted to!
