There are two reasons to buy a phrase book:
1. You’re planning a trip to Italy (or are already there)
2. To study the phrases
Learning phrases in situations can make a refreshing change from studying grammar or taking a more traditional course. For beginners, it’s a way to learn some essential survival Italian as quickly as possible. For those who already know some Italian, it can be a way of expanding your vocabulary and consolidating your grammar.
Buy this book, print it out and study it! Or keep it on your tablet or computer to refer to when you expect to find yourself in one of the situations it deals with.
