Please start with Level 1…
You’ll discover the most important Italian word; memorize ho-hai-ha | abbiamo-avete-hanno; and, finally, learn how to say that you are hungry.
Level 3 is the toughest level of the entire book. You’ll need power and perseverance to go through the equivalent of 20 book pages and explode avere into more than 30 pieces. It’s a rough initiation, but like all initiation rites, you have to do it only once! Enjoy…
You’ll first explore essere which is different from avere because it wants to know if you are a girl or a boy; and, second, make the first encounter with a universal scheme of the Italian language, the so-called ‘o-a | i-e’ scheme.
You’ll make a short excursion into irregular future stems, and, finally, we’ll get the global picture of personal pronouns, your final great intellectual challenge in Italian. From there on, you’ll be definitely in calmer waters. We promise!
After 7 levels of concentrated Italian grammar, you will be ready to start exploring the Italian language all by yourself and read your first newspaper articles!
Volume 2 will present you important advice on how to manage the key challenge of language learning: mastering the words! In particular, we will address three questions:
- How many words do you need to be perfectly at ease with the Italian language? (The answer is: between 5000 and 15,000.)
- Where will you find those thousands of words?
- How will you transfer them into your brain?
