Essential Italian Vocabulary is the course for you if you need help with your study of Italian. This fully revised edition of our best-selling course contains plenty of hints on how to learn vocabulary effectively.
Unlike a phrasebook or a dictionary, Essential Italian Vocabulary will take your existing knowledge and build on it systematically and organically, so that you will increase your vocabulary and at the same time expand your range of expression.
At the beginning of the book there is a section to help you with your pronunciation, followed by a short and simple grammar summary.
The main part of the book is arranged in topics, such as 'Work', 'Travel and Accommodation' and 'Food and Drink', and concentrates on the vital and most current words and expressions, listing those which you might already know and then extending the coverage to teach you those you probably do not know.
This is an ideal companion if you are a language student or if you are wanting a systematic, easy-to-use tool to increase the range of your vocabulary and improve your ability to express yourself in a wide variety of situations, either on holiday or on a business trip. Learn effortlessly with a new, easy-to-read page design:
Lots of instant help with common problems and quick tips for success, based on the author's many years of experience.
Summaries to help you consolidate and keep track of your progress.
