Occasionally I like to introduce an author or feature a book about Italy or anything Italian. Today I am honored to recommend a book I recently discovered, and I think you’ll like it too.
Conversational Italian for Travelers Just the Important Phrases by Kathryn Occhipinti is the perfect travel companion for your trip to Italy. Concise and well organized, only 4 inches by 6 inches, this pocket-sized Italian language book can travel with you wherever you go in Italy. Beginning with pronunciation of the Italian alphabet this book is full of practical information about every aspect of travel in Italy.
Conversational Italian is what you need in Italy and you can learn it so quickly here with the author’s focus on “just the important phrases.”
From meeting people to transportation, to renting a car, to shopping, to ordering food in a restaurant, to money, all topics of importance are covered. I am impressed with the ease of learning the Italian language, especially since I have studied it for several years.
I guess what I am saying is that a traveler doesn’t need to know all the rules of grammar and verb conjugation. Kathryn hones in on what is important and even explains certain phrases that are used for casual conversation versus more formal situations.
One example I particularly like from the book is the following excerpt:
Even if you are not going to Italy anytime soon, this book makes it fun and easy to learn to understand and speak the Italian language. I highly recommend it for anyone who has an interest in Italy.
