Can't learn Italian without it.By AuntieDepressionI now have two copies of this book because the first one is wearing out and I don't want to be without it. It's by my side during Italian classes and when doing homework. (Faster than the verb app on my phone.) The 601 verbs are fully conjugated, one per page, and there are nearly 2000 more, unconjugated, that refer back to similar verbs for DIY conjugating. I'm downgrading it slightly because there is no English-Italian index.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. definitely a good book but you may need a dictionary to look up some verbsBy CustomerThis book was very much what I needed. Not only is it absolutely loaded with verbs but it has a section at the front that discusses all the different tenses and gives examples of how they are used. In fact, it could be said that it goes above expectation because you typically only need the present, imperfect, recent past (passato prossimo) and future tenses in typical everyday conversation. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that you sometimes have to look up the verb you need in an English-Italian dictionary so you can find it here as this book has all verbs in Italian and while many sound a lot like their English equivalents, there are quite a few that do not. As far as I'm concerned that's only a very small issue. After all, if you're looking to seriously learn a language you should definitely have a dictionary on hand. Otherwise this is an excellent reference for anyone who is serious about learning Italian.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
