Misleading description

The description says with CD which is why I spent more, unfortunately CD is missing I can see the imprint where it should be, but it’s missing. Definitely not pleased.

"Italian For Dummies": Good Book (Un Buono Libro!)

I really like this "Italian For Dummies" book. I love how every word and phrase in the book is given a pronunciation guide right beside it, so that you know how to say it. I also like the "Words To Know" vocab lists throughout the book, the cultural tidbits about Italy and how the people express themselves, and the relaxed vibe of the book. The audio CD that came with the book starts off with reciting the alphabet & giving examples of words containing each letter. Oddly, the Italian alphabet isn't given much attention in the book. Then the CD goes to Meeting & Greeting dialogues in Chap. can seem a little confusing at first, but I guess you just play the CD for the dialogues with the headphone symbol next to them in the book. The only thing I don't like about the book is that it doesn't have any practice exercises, not even small-scale simple exercises (less than what would be in a school language textbook). That would've helped... But overall I'm very pleased with this book & recommend it, especially for the $13+ I paid for it.


This is a really easy book to use. believe it or not, Italian is my first language, English my second & I speak several others as well! I used this book as a refresher course & I was totally amazed at the ease of use & the ability to understand everything that was put before me! I highly recommend this book to absolutely anyone that wants to learn basic Italian!
