You might feel like you don’t know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the internet.

Instead, when you read out loud the different sections we’ve prepared for you, you will learn Italian with much less struggle! Your goal is to simply focus on a section at a time (they only a take few minutes to read). <b>Each chapter takes on multiple topics, including tips on how to build rapport with others, shopping, and asking for directions, just to name a new</b>. We wanted these sections to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on reading. That’s the very best way to learn, don’t you think?<br /><br /><h2>BONUS: Pronunciation Guides + Detailed Multiple Choice Exercises</h2><br />In this book you’ll find over eighteen chapters covering a multitude of topics in Italian. Each chapter contains tables with three columns. You start by reading the first column –word or phrase in English-, then you move on to the second –translation to Italian-, and then to the third one and read it out loud –it includes a pronunciation clue for that particular word or phrase. Once you’re done with this line, you move on to the next one, and so forth until you complete the chapter. It’s that easy and fun.<br /><br /><h2>READ: Practical Italian For Beginners – Over +700 Italian Phrases & Expressions for Everyday Conversation</h2><br /><b>"Practical Italian For Beginners"</b> contains a multitude of vocabulary lists with key words to grow your Italian vocabulary to unprecedented levels (right before you go to Italy!).

What is a country? Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton brings to life the origins and histories of 50 states that, lacking international recognition and United Nations membership, exist on the margins of legitimacy in the global order. From long-contested lands like Crimea and Tibet to lesser-known territories such as Africa's last colony and a European republic that enjoyed independence for a single day, Middleton presents fascinating stories of shifting borders, visionary leaders, and "forgotten" peoples. Beautifully illustrated with 50 regional maps, each country is literally die-cut out of the page, offering a distinctive tactile experience while exploring these remarkable places.

<b>The story of an infamous crime, a revered map dealer with an unsavory secret, and the ruthless subculture that consumed him</b><br /><br /> <br /><br />Maps have long exerted a special fascination on viewers—both as beautiful works of art and as practical tools to navigate the world. But to those who collect them, the map trade can be a cutthroat business, inhabited by quirky and sometimes disreputable characters in search of a finite number of extremely rare objects.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Once considered a respectable antiquarian map dealer, E. Forbes Smiley spent years doubling as a map thief —until he was finally arrested slipping maps out of books in the Yale University library. <i>The Map Thief</i> delves into the untold history of this fascinating high-stakes criminal and the inside story of the industry that consumed him.<br /><br /> <br /><br />Acclaimed reporter Michael Blanding has interviewed all the key players in this stranger-than-fiction story, and shares the fascinating histories of maps that charted the New World, and how they went from being practical instruments to quirky heirlooms to highly coveted objects. Though pieces of the map theft story have been written before, Blanding is the first reporter to explore the story in full—and had the rare privilege of having access to Smiley himself after he’d gone silent in the wake of his crimes. Moreover, although Smiley swears he has admitted to all of the maps he stole, libraries claim he stole hundreds more—and offer intriguing clues to prove it. Now, through a series of exclusive interviews with Smiley and other key individuals, Blanding teases out an astonishing tale of destruction and redemption.<br /><br /> <br /><br /><i>The Map Thief</i> interweaves Smiley’s escapades with the stories of the explorers and mapmakers he knew better than anyone. Tracking a series of thefts as brazen as the art heists in <i>Provenance</i> and a subculture as obsessive as the oenophiles in <i>The Billionaire’s Vinegar</i>, Blanding has pieced together an unforgettable story of high-stakes crime.<br /> <br />
