An Italian to English Bilingual Book With Italian to English Dictionary (Italian Bilingual Books series)
The timeless classic "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll has captivated audiences worldwide for over 100 years. It tells the story of a girl, Alice, who falls into a rabbit hole and enters a strange parallel universe, where nothing is as it seems...
This Dual Language Book
This version of the story has been accommodated for learners of Italian. We have aligned the original Italian version of the story side-by-side with the official Italian translation, "Alicia nel Paese della Meraviglie" by by T. Pietrocola-Rosetti.
The English version is printed on the left half of the page, and the Italian version on the right half of the page.
This will allow you to get the reading practice you need in Italian and quickly get answers when you can’t seem to figure out the corresponding word or phrase.
Because the English and Italian text are next to eachother, you will save a lot of time and frustration by not having to reach for the dictionary to look up the translation of a word. As a result, you’ll have a smoother reading experience.
"Alice nel Paese della Meraviglie" is about 27.000 words long. The story is written out of just 2270 different lemma´s (a lemma is the dictionary form of a word), making it a great book for beginner to intermediate language learners.
To further help you with learning Italian, we added two Italian to English dictionaries in the back of the book, made specifically for this story.
One dictionary is based on word frequency. We analyzed the Italian text and listed all the words by how often they are used. Study the most common words, and see how far you can come without resorting to the translation.
You can also find a detailed alphabetical dictionary in the back, which is helpful for looking up the meaning of a word rather than relying on how it’s translated in context.
If you encounter a Italian word you don´t know, and you can't deduce it's meaning through context or require extra clarification, flip towards the back of the book where you can look it up alphabetically.
Plus, you may find yourself wondering: What is the correct pronunciation of this word in Italian? That is why we included IPA phonetic transcriptions of Italian words.
A tried and tested method, bilingual books, also known as parallel text books or dual language books, have been used to assist language learners for hundreds of years.
