Italian for Xenophobes
Lingo Learners – Italian for Xenophobes
A humorous approach to Italian that shows you can speak the lingo simply by using plain English.
Vital phrases will trip off your tongue, gems like:
‘Why does your mother look at me in that way?’, ‘Is the water traditionally brown in this area?’ and ‘I don’t have any more money!’
“Who needs lessons? With this book I found myself speaking Italian like a native!” Mac O’Rhoney
I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men and German to my horse. I would never be without my Xenophobe's Lingo Learner.
Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor 1500-1558
About the author
Drew Launay is the author of more than a dozen novels, plays, works of non-fiction, and BBC broadcasts. After discovering that the natives of other countries refused to understand what he was talking about, Drew devised the Xenophobe's way of coping with the problem and now speaks Spanish, French, Italian, and German like a true Brit. He lives in Nerja, near Malaga, Spain where he sits most days on the beach with his laptop writing to language professors and academics world-wide warning them that their number is up.
