Publisher Comments:

Francesca ha una cotta per Giovanni! (trans.): Francesca has a crush on Giovanni! (lit.): Francesca has a baking for Giovanni! Ho mangeato in un ristorante caro, dove mi hanno spennato! (trans.): I ate at an expensive restaurant and got fleeced! (lit.): l ate at an expensive restaurant and got plucked! Mamma mia! Even after years of trying to learn Italian, you still have trouble conversing with a native speaker. Why? Because everyday Italian is filled with slang and colloquialisms. Street Italian 1 is the first in a series of slang/idiom books that teach you how to speak and understand the real language used daily on the street, in homes, offices, stores, and among family and friends. Entertaining dialogues, word games and drills, crossword puzzles, word searches, and ""inside"" tips will have you sounding like a native in no time at all.

Synopsis:

Italian is among the top five languages studied by high school and college students and is also a popular language with consumers interested in culture and travel. But the language taught in the classroom is often not the language spoken in the streets of Italy. Street Italian 1 is designed to teach the fundamentals of colloquial Italian in ten easy and fun lessons. More than just a dictionary or phrase book, Street Italian 1 teaches readers how to use slang and idioms in conversation, including lessons on sentence structure, contractions, and verbal short-cuts. Each chapter is filled with puzzles, word searches, fill-ins, cartoons, and exercises to make learning Italian simple and entertaining.
