    A great easy reader for beginners. Eight short chapters, easy vocabulary and most importantly easy to listen to, in particular, to figure out the meanings of the words before looking at script. An enjoyable story that we can all relate to.
    I recommend this to any A1 level learner.

    Rosa la cuoca disastrosa was the first story I read in Italian and it was pretty funny!
    I found that I was able to understand most of the written story. Hearing the audio is hugely helpful to develop listening skills, which I lack LOL! My only Italian education is a year of daily Duolingo which gave me good base for learning Italian but reading and listening to “real” stories written by native speakers is the next step. I think onlineitalianclub.com to be the best for me!

    My friends and I loved this book! It was the perfect level for us and we learned so many new words and phrases. It’s a book to read over and over. Thank you!

    I shared this delightful book with my Italian u3a group and we enjoyed it very much. We enjoyed the humour and found the book easy enough to understand but also learnt some new words and phrases.

    Great to be able to listen to correct pronunciation of words while reading the text. Great idea. Thank you

    as with other easy readers, it is a nice, compact ebook that is easy to read and contains a story that makes one want to read on. very much recommended

    Era un divertente storia e facile leggere. Grazie!

    Finally got around to reading this book. Another great story and quite funny. I was able to understand the gist of the story without referring to the English text but admit to struggling with vocabulary, however it’s good to see ‘real’ sentences rather than the strange manufactured ones that you get in the likes of Duolingo and Memrise..

    Our group loved this story; we loved Rosa and had a lot of laughs as we read and translated. 😂Thanks very much

    As a granny I could relate to this story -laugh and learn some more vocabulary at the same time.

    This story is funny, cute and enjoyable to read. I learned some new vocabulary that helps improve Italian skills. I recommend this book!

    We have been learning Italian for a year, but find we need plenty of support material to keep the language alive and reinforce vocabulary and structures, but there’s clear audio here,too. These short readers seem to fit the bill perfectly!

  13. Tazzat

    This is a cheeky little story as this is Italy and we all KNOW that all le nonne are amazing cooks but still I can relate to Rosa and there’s often been a time when I’ve had to resort to un segreto when cooking. Easy to read and listen to and I especially like the glossary and exercizes after each chapter, helps to reinforce the comprehension.

  14. Anne Houghton

    I really loved this story because I am old enough to be a gran now (I live in constant hope) and I also am a ‘disastrous cook’ so the story strikes a cord with me. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it!

  15. Dian Bennick

    No doubt about it. This is the best way to learn because you have the visual as well as auditory method. So important when you have no one to actually speak with.
    Love the way the book is written with special vocabulary and exercises. The best.

    And there are many choices.

    Kudos for all the variety as well as the expertise in the levels.

  16. Gosia

    The story is funny and I really enjoyed reading it. The ability of listening of each chapter is a great value and you my check – before reading – your improving Italian skills. Although it would be great to have them downloaded and be able to listen to them in a car for example.
    The glossary and exercises are very helpful so you can learn the language in a pleasant way.
    And it is so easy to buy 🙂
    I recommend the story about Rosa and OnlineItalianClub.com. as well.
