    I did enjoy reading this reader even though it was at a very introductory level, but it was helpful and relevant in learning some of the basics of beginning Italian.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    A very helpful concept for learning a new language without getting overwhelmed by the grammar and vocabulary. Looking forward to many such learning tools. Grazie mille!

    I liked the story. The learning method works very well. It is great you can listen and read or just one or the other. The level was right for me as a beginner – just challenging enough with the odd unfamiliar word. Will definitely continue with this way of learning

    My first easy ereader. I read each chapter through quickly after listening to each chapter. New vocab usefulI, used my etranslater a few times. Story intertesting enough. Great change from learning vocab.

    I made it through and got the plot, to a large extent. I am a literal person and so for me having more of vocabulary explained provided would be a plus.

    I think this concept of learning is excellent as grammar/vocabulary books are good and have a purpose, to be able to get concepts is very important and it is hard to get concepts out those types of learning materials (grammar/vocabulary books) alone.

    I really enjoyed listening to this eBook. It was a nice simple story that was easy to follow even though I didn’t understand every word. After listening a coupe of times I read the text and looked up any words I didn’t know. This helped my vocabulary as well as my listening. Looking forward to my next one!

    Really good to get me started on reading Italian books. It was a great introduction before I start to try to read the A2/B1 level of books! I really enjoyed it and reading it out aloud has helped me with pronunciation and it has helped me with the listening too

    I have found all the e-readers great for helping me learn Italian. Il ristorante was no exception- a perfect little story!
    I also want to commend Daniel for responding to emails in a timely fashion! Who does that anymore? No one, except Daniel!
    Grazie!

    An interesting story. I enjoyed reading and listening to it at the same time. A good book for beginners and easy to follow for those who have learnt more Italian.

    I enjoyed reading”Il Ristorante” and the process of absorbing new vocabulary. Admittedly, this was my first foray into formally reading in my new “target language”. While I would have preferred more content, I did very much find the text of interest and the story entertaining. Given the competitive pricing, the purchase was a good decision. I’m looking forward to working my way thorough my next book from EasyReaders.

    I pretty much agree with the other posted reviews. I have some French and Spanish already, so I can crash through the dialogue and figure the story out from context as we proceed.
    I could use a few more translated words.
    I have only done the first 4 chapters, but it is going quickly enough. I will run through to the end and then go back and do it over, maybe with a dictionary by my side.
    Thanks,

    I really enjoyed being able to tackle this story in Italian and to listen to and hear the spoken story. It was at just the right level for me.
    I am now enjoying La sorpressa.

    Thank you for this ebook – it was a lovely storyline and the grammar content just right for an A1 level learner. It was great having the audio version to listen too whilst following the written text and the exercises helped to compound the learning.
    Grazie tanto!

    I downloaded this free e reader and have found it very useful in helping my Italian. It would maybe have been nice to have an English translation with it, but I suppose that not having this makes me have to look for the translation of bits I do not understand which will further improve my Italian. I have since purchased the e reader of Cinema Paradiso.

    Thanks for this little book; it’s a great story for adult beginners. The accompanying audio is fabulous too for improving listening skills.

    My first Italian Ebook – very easy to read and understand. As an older reader the text was interesting. Written in present tense, but included modal and reflexive verbs, giving a range of verb usage. The explanation/definition of Italian phrases was very useful as these are often difficult to understand when translating.

    My first ebook and I thought it was a great way to learn, especially running the audio as well.

    Reading and listening to the text at the same time is so useful. I like the short chapters that move the story on each time. The language is nice and straightforward for beginners, but still contains a range of really useful vocabulary.

    I think that listening to the stories is very helpful. The pace is perfect and the speaker’s voice is quite clear. It is important to hear slowly spoken Italian whatever your level to help reinforce everything you study on paper.

    I like the story. It’s better to learn Italian this way! Thank you again. I am planning to buy a new one soon! I can’t wait.

  27. Rated 5 out of 5

    The book is perfect for beginners, and it was quite easy to get it as ebook, since I’m not too perfect on the internet!

    Nice story to learn Italian from. Ideal as a beginner level
