A Complete Course for Beginners

It's easy to teach yourself Italian!

Complete Italian provides you with a clear and comprehensive approach to Italian, so you can progress quickly from the basics to understanding, speaking, and writing Italian with confidence.

Within each of the 25 thematic chapters, important language structures are introduced through life-like dialogues. You'll learn grammar in a gradual manner so you won't be overwhelmed by this tricky subject. Exercises accompany the texts and reinforce learning in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

This program also features current cultural information boxes that reflect recent changes in society.

The accompanying audio CDs include audio exercises--performed by native speakers--that reinforce communicative skills.

You can also visit a website for tests, extension articles and a vibrant community of like-minded learners. And if you don't have much time, don't worry--this book gives you one-, five-, and 10-minute bites of learning to get you started.
