Learn Italian with Nuovo Espresso Textbooks

Looking for a language textbook?? I recommend you to learn Italian with Nuovo Espresso textbooks. I’ve been using the Nuovo Espresso series of books since over 4 years now and have suggested them to countless people looking for an Italian language course book. The Nuovo Espresso series is an excellent resource and workbook for both beginners and intermediates. (I’ve only explored until B2 level so I don’t know how their C level course books are!)

Having become accustomed to the structure and pattern of the book, I can easily say that Nuovo Espresso has helped me know the culture and language of Italy even more. There are no English translations in the book so you’re diving in the strange world of a foreign language which I think is very useful. I know that if there were English translations available in the book, I would have stayed in my comfort zone and focused on reading them more. But the Nuovo Espresso series helps me to focus solely on Italian and hence dive into the unknown!
