This pack gives both the holiday-maker and business person the opportunity to hear and practise the Italian language before going abroad, many of the phrases from the "Collins Phrase Book and Dictionary". The phrases are given twice, the first time spoken slowly and clearly by a native speaker so that the listener can easily distinguish the different words and sounds. After the pause for the listener to practise, the phrase will be repeated once again at normal speed. Not only will this attune the listeners' ear to what to expect on their travels, it also gives them something to aim for. As their confidence increases, they can have fun trying to say the phrases second time along with the native speaker. This will also help them with the rhythm of the language. By the time they arrive, they should be able to make up their own questions using the dictionary section in the back of the phrase book. So that the listener can follow the phrases in the book, the topic name and page numbers are given as they go along. As each new topic is introduced, there are travel tips with practical information about travel and accommodation to ensure that people get the most out of their trip.
It is aimed as an easily portable pack for use at home, in a walkman or in the car.show more
