## Introduction

The purpose of this book is to help you learn the basics of Italian grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. It is intended to be used in conjunction with Italian For Dummies, 2nd Edition (Wiley Publishing, 2009) by Robert J. Galbraith, which is the best book on the market for learning Italian. This book will help you get the most out of your study of the language, but it is not the only book you will need. You will also need a good dictionary and a good thesaurus, as well as a good grammar book, a good vocabulary book, and a book of Italian proverbs and sayings, such as The Best Italian Proverbs and Sayings.

If you are learning Italian as a second language, you may find that you need to review the grammar and vocabulary that you have already learned in your native language. For example, if you are a native English speaker, you will probably find it easier to learn Italian if you review the English grammar that you learned in high school or college before you begin to learn the Italian grammar. If, on the other hand, you are an Italian speaker who is learning English as a foreign language, it will probably be easier for you to learn English if you learn Italian first. In either case, it is a good idea to review what you already know before you start to learn a new language, because it will make learning the new language much easier and faster for you. In this book, I will give you some suggestions on how you can review your knowledge of the English language, and I will also give you a list of the most important words and phrases that you should learn in order to be able to communicate effectively in Italian. You may also find it helpful to review some of the vocabulary and grammar that I cover in this book in the chapters of my book, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Learning Italian(Alpha, 2009).

In addition, I have included a glossary at the end of the book, which you can use to look up words that you do not know. I have also included a bibliography, so that you can find out more about the topics that I have covered in the book. I hope that you will find this book to be a useful and enjoyable guide to learning Italian, and that it will be helpful to you in your studies of this beautiful and fascinating language. I wish you the best of luck with your studies!

## Keywords and Phrases

Keywords and phrases are the words and expressions that you use most often when you are speaking or writing in a language. They are the building blocks of your language, so it is important that you learn them well. In Italian, as in English, the most common words are nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs. In addition, in Italian, there are a number of other words that are used less frequently than in English. These words are called idioms.
