If you want to learn Italian in a fun and entertaining way, then keep reading The truth is... the traditional classroom-style method used to learn a foreign language isn't really that good. Memorizing dozens (or even hundreds) of grammar rules it's hard, and remembering them while you're in an actual conversation is even harder. But think about it. How did you learn your first language? Did someone give you a grammar book while you were still in the baby cradle? Or did you learn to speak by simply listening to others?

Unfortunately, not everyone can just move to Italy to learn the language. That's why reading Italian stories is your next best choice. The Italian short stories in this book will help you: Avoid memorizing grammar rules for grammar's sake.
