Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers can teach themselves Italian at their own pace with this book. An opening discussion of Italian sounds, pronunciation, and spelling is followed with lessons on greeting people, asking and answering basic questions, using polite expressions, counting, making comparisons, expressing preferences, and carrying on everyday verbal transactions at stores, banks, and restaurants. Although mainly a self-teaching manual, E-Z Italian's many exercises and quick-check quizzes also make it a fine textbook supplement for classroom use. Barron's E-Z Series books are updated, and re-formatted editions of Barron's older and perennially popular Easy Way books. Titles in the new E-Z Series feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever. All are self-teaching manuals that cover a wide variety of practical and academic subjects, written on levels that range from senior high school to college-101 standards.
