Publisher's Summary

Want to expand your Italian vocabulary with almost no effort? Then keep reading.

Are you planning a trip to a Italy? Or sharpening your skills for work? Just press play on this audiobook when you’re sleeping, meditating, or doing chores around the house.

Learn new vocabulary while actively listening, or passively while you’re doing other things.

This audiobook contains:

  • More than 1000 common Italian words and phrases
  • More than four hours of original music (composed and performed by South African DJ and producer Spirante Beat) specifically to relax your mind

I'm sure your first question is: Can you actually learn a foreign language while you’re asleep? Well, according to a Swiss research study in 2014, the answer is unassailably, YES! In this study, a group of German speakers was given a list of unfamiliar Dutch words to study. Half were instructed to get some sleep, while they listened to long lists of Dutch words and translations. The other half was instructed to stay awake. Four hours later, they were tested and the group that listened while they slept had significantly higher recall. The study concluded that people can indeed absorb new information passively during non-REM sleep - which is the deep sleep we get in the first few hours of the night.

This audiobook is divided into six chapters, each with different kinds of vocabulary, and with different music. Choose a different chapter each night, or loop the audiobook to have a continuous stream. Some listeners - those with more experience with the foreign language - have reported that these recordings allow them to dream in that language!

Sit back, relax, enjoy and LEARN!

Please note: This audiobook is in Italian.

Osmosis doesn’t work

The claim that you will learn Italian in your sleep is false. I’ve listened to this audiobook for weeks and can’t recall anything beyond basic stuff I already knew.

Soothing Narrator - I think it works?

The narrator had a soothing voice and was easy to fall asleep to. I have a pretty good Spanish foundation but I could definitely see this as a helpful too. The info about the sleep studies was very interesting. Only negative was I don't think the narrator was a native Italian speaker. But her pronunciation seemed pretty good. Worth your time!

Good but with some Pronunciation problems

I think it’s good. But clearly the speaker is not native and has difficulty pronouncing the R and putting some accents in the right place.

Useless.

I don't know whether or not it is possible to learn a language in your sleep but there is almost nothing in this version that is suitable for anyone interested in picking up language skills, dialogue, or useful phrases for a visit to Italy.

italian hard to hear and bizzare vocabulary select

I didn't finish this book. Even asleep I dont need to know the Italian for urine sample, sonogram, toaster, or blender. The first chapter includes professions and kitchen appliances. could the author have looked for more common words that someone studying Italian might want to learn. In an effort to be calming and induce sleep. the Italian speakers voice is so low and mellow it is often difficult to understand her pronunciation. I plan on returning.

Love the twist on how to learn!

I love the idea of learning a new language while I sleep. They suggest learning other things while you sleep so why not this! Love the twist on learning a new language! The narrator also has a great tone and a soothing voice!

A treat for the ears

I've always believed that humans intake the most information after a good nights sleep so this book is perfect for that. Every night I put this one and the calming voice coupled with the gentle background music always gets me into a very relaxed state of mind. From there I close my eyes and try to go over the phrases in my head for 30 minutes before I eventually fall asleep. It has been an enjoyable listen and I'm very grateful.

ANOTHER GOOD MEDITATION LANGUAGE BOOK!

I am a fan of these sleep, meditating language audiobooks. I like these language books because they are soothing and you are learning a language at the same time. WIN-WIN! I'm trying to learn as many languages as possible, and as easily as possible.

Very Good!

This audiobook is extremely helpful and is a must if you are learning Italian.
I have been to Italy many times, and my next trip to Rome is in April. After listening to this audiobook a couple of times (and I will continue to listen to it until my next trip), I am confident I can try a conversation with my Italian friends and locals.

Equally good for education and relaxation!

This is the best possible way to learn a new language, with a beautiful original music score and a soothing voice narrating your instruction. This book could just as easily be used in a classroom setting or for a meditation. And if you want to learn as you sleep, there is no better book to soothe you into a deep slumber that will actually help you learn. Great job, and with much better pacing than other oddly-structured audiobooks I have read (affirmations, mantras, etc...) This book easily holds your attention when you want to learn and calms and lulls you when you meditate or sleep. A fantastic gift for someone you love.

A fascinating way to learn a language!

I had no idea you could master a language this way. Very clever. I have a few Italian friends here. Moreover, I would love to surprise them by speaking their language. This book has been an excellent resource for me. I found it easy to follow. Using it has made learning Italian easy and enjoyable for me. The narration is excellent. Her soothing voice fits very well with the background music. I highly recommend this book.

A fantastic book anyone can learn from.


This audiobook demonstrates the amazing capacity to learn a language super fast which I thought would never be possible. I bought this as I have a long trip planned to Italy and wanted to learn Italian fast and efficiently. This book covers a huge range of vocabulary to help the reader gain a deeper ability to speak Italian. The author has very cleverly written this book so that it is concise and to the point making it easy for any one to do.
