Modern Italian Grammar: A Practical Guide By Francesco Cardo, Anna Proudfoot
2005 | 504 Pages | ISBN: 0415098491 | PDF | 3 MB
I thoroughly agree with "A reader" right below -- and this seems to pertain to the overall series (first I got me the French Practical Guide for a French refresher and didn't like it for the same reasons as the "A reviewer" says he didn't like the Italian one). The whole series is aiming at the beginner: be very clear on that. However, unlike in the case of French, I'm only learning Italian, and, after having used this book for a couple of months can say that it's been exceptionally useful. The book isn't pedantic; every given rule is immediatly supported by a pile of examples; and, what I especially appreciate, the ambiguitiy of the language (inherent in _any_ human language, by the way) is made clear -- a correct rule is given and then a note: but they also say it different on TV and in papers; here's how it goes -- this sort of thing. I can hardly believe it myself, but after a couple of months of having this book (and I can study only in my spare time) I can read Italian text. I mean, my vocabulary is inadequate of course, but I have zero difficulty with the structure. My French helps I suppose, but still it's exhilarating to gain a capacity to understand foreign text in such a short time. That said, again: do not buy it if you already know Italian but need a refresher -- this book is NOT structured as reference; _finding_ things in it is hard. These books, the whole series, are written to be read from cover to cover, maybe several times -- and then that's it: you will not return to them over and over again; long term you'll need some concise, dry, table-happy and deeply indexed grammar reference (for the French, I got me le Petit Grevisse; I'm sure there's something analogous in Italian, but I'm not ready for it yet). Bottom line: you'll love this book if you're an absolute beginner; buy with confidence. Otherwise you won't so get something else.
