- I don't want to trade, I don't know how that's possible-trading books online. A really good Italian learners' book to buy is the Berlitz Self-Teacher e è molto bene.

- Grazie Zack,

Does anyone else have any suggestions for good starter books, I saw "Italian for Dummies" but wasn't sure about it! :D

- if you want to do self-study..i suggest "Italian made simple" by Christina Mazzoni..it is very conversational, has the same running story throughout all the chapters etc so it's interesting to read, has basic grammar...you can find it online if local bookstore doesn't have it.

for much faster grammar: "Italian, a self-teaching guide" by Edoardo Lèbano is good. Better in the sense of more exercises to practice but less explanation. Both of these were far better than the awful textbook "Ciao" we were forced to use in class.
