My Irish friend Don is going to Italy for the first time in a couple of weeks. He doesn't have time to learn Italian and asked me for advice. He thought that a crash Italian language course would be too overwhelming in such a short, busy time before the trip. I smiled because it's not the first time that I have heard that concern. I suggested to visit www.linguaecucina.com, "Audible eBook" page, scroll down the series of audible Italian language eBooks, "Italian for Tourists: Mauro and Carla Bianchi's Trip to Italy" and download them on any of the three platforms listed there. iTunes.com offers both text and audio editions; Amazon.com, text edition only and Audible.com, audio edition only.
