WHAT THEY DIDN'T TEACH YOU IN ITALIAN CLASS
Slang Phrases for the Cafe, Club, Bar, Bedroom, Ball Game and More
Packed with slang words, phrases and expressions not found in any textbook, this fun-to-read handbook teaches the casual, everyday language heard in the cafes, bars and streets of Italy. No one actually speaks the formal Italian taught in school, which makes this book a must have for anyone looking to chat with the locals without sounding like a robot. Published as an attractive, small trim hardcover, this handy phrasebook makes the perfect gift for travelers and students who want to fill the gap between the Italian they are learning in class and what is really spoken in Italy.

Toasting a pint of birra in the piazza...

Drop the textbook formality and chat with the locals in Italy’s everyday language.
