Learn the slang words, modern phrases, and curses they definitely never taught you in Italian class with this super-handy and hilariously improper English-Italian phrasebook.

You already know enough Italian to get by, but you want to be able to tell those inside jokes, greet your friends in a laid-back manner, and casually pick someone up at a bar.

From “What’s up?” to “Wanna go home with me?” Dirty Italian will teach you how to speak like you're a regular on the streets of Milan or Rome. But you’ll also discover material that goes beyond a traditional phrasebook, including: 

  • Hilarious insults
  • Provocative facts
  • Explicit swear words
  • Themed Italian cocktails
  • And more!

Next time you’re traveling or chatting with your Italian friends, pick up this book, drop the textbook formality, and get dirty!
