    This series of books is great. They are full of information, but still short. You can print them out into a booklet form if you don’t want to study in front of a screen. You learn grammar at the appropriate level. There are exercises to practice what you have studied, but my favorite thing is the vocabulary. The lists are fantastic. You can never know enough words in another language!

    An excellent resource that has really helped me with my Italian grammar. I love these helpful resources from Online Italian. They are first class. Thank you.

    I’ll start off by saying that this is the fifth or sixth book that I have bought from the OnLineItalian club – the rest are easy readers or parallel text which I found excellent. This is the first grammar book though and while I am only about a third of the way through it I am finding that the explanations seem good, but when I get to the exercises I don’t finf that the lessons have adequately prepared me for them – hence the medium score rating overall.

    With workout series you practice and learn grammar and vocabulary on different levels and following them improve your language skills. Listening exercises improve listening skills. And if you also use the site, you have a great learning experience. Thank you guys for all the work you put in the books and the site.

    Whilst I bought this level, B2, at the same time as A2 and B1 I have not started to seriously study it (I am still on A2). I can’t wait. I have skimmed through it and know that it will certainly improve and strengthen my knowledge and ability to speak Italian. Use of certain verb tenses is always an area of uncertainty and these books definitely help. The speech on the listening files has really picked up speed compared with the A2 and B1 levels. This can only be a good thing if your intention to learn and converse with Italian people is serious.

    Very helpful book. I have an upcoming course in Italy (with Madrelingua School) and I hope this will help prepare me. I like the practice exercises. LOTS of helpful new vocabulary!! Vocabulary is what really helps me since I like to read whatever I can find in Italian.

    Any system which purports to teach a foreign language must teach
    1 Grammar
    2 Vocabulary
    3 Two way communication via the spoken and written word
    4 Conversation with native speakers – possibly the most difficult skill to learn

    Grammar is to learning Italian as a good soffritto is to cooking Italian.

    I am writing this review on the B2 workbook from my B1 level perspective and as I expected the transition is seamless so my comments reflect on the whole e-book family published by the OnLineItalianClub, all value for money, in my opinion, I leave others to make their own judgement.

    Why these e-books? I have bought many text books on the Italian language and committed a good number of them to the bin or ebay, where is ne when you need it!

    A great deal of thought has gone into increasing the scope and difficulty of the content in each progressive workbook and I do believe that if I succeed in completing the workbook series that I can truthfully say “I can speak Italian”

    1 grammar – The author has stripped way a lot of the linguistic jargon, possibly a bit severely at times (the sections on, for example il conjunctivo would benefit from more explanation on usage) but in the main the content is easy to read and sufficiently complete to be valuable.
    2 vocabulary – most text books at some stage, often the index, create groups of related words – professions, food, clothing etc. The workbooks do the same but they also, to make learning easier, have created other groups fpr example acronyms (dietro sinistra etc,),words that have different meanings dependent on gender la porta il porto and diminutives etc. sorella sorellina
    3 the listening exercises get more difficult from A1 level to B2 level, a real challenge which must eventually be mastered
    4 As I have already noted conversation is the hardest skill to acquire, the listening exercises are good for this purpose and I have high hopes for the Skype lessons where a native speaker listens and comments on the student’s speaking skills are tested.
    I recently installed Skype on my machine (a free download), I bought a cheap web cam and set of headphones and have started a course of Skype lessons. It must be said that sometimes the Skype connection goes down.

    In conclusion I am impressed with the workbooks, the only criticisms I have are that not all the higher level Italian phrases are translated into English, this may well be a ploy used by the author to encourage the student to do the translation and an Italian transcript of each listening exercise would be helpful.

    I commend the B2 workbook as I do all the workbooks.
