Most of these books take a light-hearted approach to their subjects, often employing humor, and always presenting fun-learning exercises that include puzzles, games, and challenging "Brain Tickler" problems to solve. This user-friendly textbook supplement demonstrates that learning a foreign language can be both easy and fun when approached in the proper spirit. Students are introduced to interesting aspects of Italian culture and coached in conversational Italian while they learn basics of grammar and vocabulary.
