Want to REALLY learn Italian?
So put aside that grammar book – it’s time to start working on building your reading and listening skills!
Being able to confidently read Italian texts and understand what you hear opens up a whole new world of opportunities, both for learning and for living!
This ‘Three For Two’ bundle contains three ‘easy reader’ ebooks, at a discounted price.
Each of these .pdf ebooks (printable, or readable on most devices) contains an original story, along with glossaries of difficult words and exercises.
There’s even an audio recording to listen to online, as often as you wish!
This material is written by Italian teachers, especially for learners like you. The finished story is then recorded by an Italian native speaker.
You read and listen, check unknown words in the glossary, do the exercises if you wish, then go back and read and/or listen again.
Spend as much or as little time on this material as you wish – the important thing is to finish the story!
Read one, then another, then another!
Building a study habit which includes regular reading and listening to material adapted to your level will, over time, improve your knowledge of grammar and vocabulary.
As well as boosting your confidence with Italian texts of all types!
The A2/B1 (pre-intermediate/intermediate) ‘Three For Two’ bundle includes three .pdf ebooks:
You’ll receive all three (for the price of two!) within 24 hours of your purchase.

Having just bought a three for two bundle, I felt moved to leave a review. I ordered the bundle knowing that I already owned one of them, so I left a note in the order to that effect. Less than two hours later, I’ve been contacted to choose an alternative, made the choice and received the replacement. Excellent service!
I haven’t read the books yet, but I have several others at this level (A1/A2), which is elementary. The Italian is simple in structure, as it should be at this level. The vocabulary is as varied as the content with the occasional phrase such as ‘rimanere a bocca aperta’ thrown in for good measure.
The books are excellent learning material and the accompanying audio on Soundcloud is pronounced clearly and at a pace in sympathy with the level.
I thoroughly recommend these books.
(Now to try a higher level…)
Thanks for taking the time to do this, Martin. I appreciate it!

This is how to learn Italian – by reading and listening! The grammar and vocabulary are easily and naturally assimilated without the need to refer to grammar books or learn long lists of vocabulary. The books are appropriate to the level and the stories are interesting. They are available in different reading formats (Kindle etc.). I also use the Skype lessons to round out the learning experience – by speaking to an Italian for 30 minutes.

I teach Italian to the “over 50’s” club in Bathgate, West Lothian, Scotland and we have almost finished “Cielo Libero.” The class prefer your publications to my grammar which ,somehow,always seems to get in the way. I think that this speaks volumes. I wil respond to the other publications in due course and many thanks for all the work you carry out both on line and behind the scenes. Much appreciated.
Tanti auguri dalla scozia.

I wondered if I’d have time to read these before going on holiday to Sicily, I managed two & found them very good, not easy for me, but a good level. The 3 for 2 offer is great value.
Now I need to get back into learning mode….

I was unsure whether I would actually get round to reading these books if I bought them but now I’m really impressed. Firstly they are not at all difficult to download and have ready to read on my phone which is always with me when I’m sitting on a train or waiting for something. The books are always with me so no excuse! So any time that otherwise would be wasted is put to good use. The stories, although simple actually hold my attention enough to want to find out the ending. A huge bonus is being able to listen to the story as well. My ‘Italian ear’ is not yet very tuned in so it is great to be able to listen and then check the words I don’t understand by reading and then listening again. I have tried listening to Italian radio but just get totally lost as they speak so quickly but these books are much easier to understand and therefore I don’t give up so easily. I will certainly be purchasing more of these books. I’m delighted with them.

These books are a great idea! They’re short stories that aren’t complicated and keep you practicing italian. Reading italian is a great way to continually see how the sentences and phrases are structured and these books are perfect. Great idea to incorporate a quiz at the end of each chapter too.

I have really enjoyed reading each one of these books. They are all quite different in their content with the stories being well constructed and interesting. I was a little unsure about ‘Un viaggio nel tempo’ as chapter two began in a similar fashion to chapter one, however the story had an amusing twist at the end. I do enjoy the questions at the end of each chapter too.
