Today, as part of this week’s 33% Coupon Code promotion, I’m going to give you my top ebook picks for beginner, intermediate, and advanced-learners of Italian, so the ebooks that I’ve enjoyed the most (I read them all, multiple times, during the editing and publishing process).
My criteria is just that: enjoyment. Why? Because as a language-learner myself, I find that if there’s a story that engages me (whether it’s a news article, or fiction, like our ‘easy readers’), I’ll keep turning the page.
And if I can’t (metaphorically) put an ebook down, my reading comprehension skills improve, and with them my knowledge of vocabulary, and my confidence with the grammar of the language I’m learning.
As any teacher (or student) knows, boredom is the enemy! So a writer that knows how to craft a text so that it pulls you in and won’t let go, even if it’s ‘just’ language-study material, is indeed a useful ally!
(SCROLL DOWN TO THE P.S. for details about the 33% Coupon Code.)
Bene, let’s get to my top picks! I’m on the Catalog page of our online shop, starting a little way down, where it says ‘Italian Easy Readers’ (if you’re learning another language, you’ll need to scroll down the Catalog page and make your own selections, sorry!)
So we have seventeen easy reader ebooks for A1 and A2 students, six at A1 (the lowest level), eight at the ‘half-level’ A1/2, and three at A2 (the harder ones). If you’re not sure which level is right for you, use the Free Sample links and take a look. You should be able to get the gist of the story with only occasional use of a dictionary.
N.b. This article was written a couple of years ago. Since then we’ve published other ebooks, so the selection at your level is probably even more ample than described below. Our Catalog page is always up-to-date, so includes the most recent titles, and free sample chapters!
So honestly? I enjoyed all seventeen. but I’ve been strict with myself and whittled the total down to just two at each level, concentrating on the ones I liked the MOST – the stories that made me actually care about the characters, and about what happened to them next!
(These are extracts from our Catalog page, so you can also see the price, the available formats, and a link to the free sample chapter for each title…)
What if those were too easy for you? Nessun problema. For ‘intermediate’ learners we have loads and loads of materials – twenty-two separate titles!
The hard part was choosing between them, but again, I’ve been strict and narrowed it down to two stories at each half level…
Hope there was something there that called out “Read me!”
But if you looked at the sample chapters and they were STILL to simple for you, firstly, well done for reading Italian for such confidence, and secondly, brace yourself now for the hard stuff!
Bene. Hope you found lots that will keep you reading in and listening to Italian over the festive period, and in 2024.
Make your selections today. And don’t fofget to use the 33% Coupon Code, the details of which are below.
