Italian Audiobooks

Post by jefuchs » Thu May 03, 2007 3:15 pm

I know where to find free audiobooks in English, but Italian audiobooks are hard to come by for a beginner who doesn't know how to Google in Italian.

But here's one: Pinocchio in MP3 format. I've only listened to a few minutes of it so far, but I can tell that the reader (a volunteer), did a good job, spoke clearly, and not too fast! Besides the audiobook, there's a link to the text, so you can follow along while listening.

Anybody know any other sources of spoken-word recordings at a slowish beginner level?

Ciao!

If you are looking for something to put on your ipod/mp3 player or even just to listen to on your pc, there is a whole set off audio lessons at: Learnitalianpod.com

This is one of my favorite sites. They have 50 lessons for beginners and then some intermediate lessons too. They read the dialogue at various speeds and leave pauses for you to repeat after them as well. They are easy to understand too.

I am learning English every day, so could you help me by correcting (In private, if you want) anything I have written incorrectly.

Librivox.org has many audiobooks. All are free, and most of them are in English.

editori di audiolibri

Post by GabriellaS » Sat Nov 22, 2008 7:33 pm

Sucusate se rivango questo soggetto ma di recente mio padre a perso un po la vista e siccome a lui e' sempre piaciuto leggere molto mi ha chiesto se conosco qualche casa editrice che produce audiolibri.

Io compero molti audio libri che ascolto in macchina ma sono tutti in inglese. E' molto facile trovare audiolibri in lingua inglese, tutte le librerie sono fornitissime qui in Inghilterra ed anche online se ne trovano di tutti i tipi

In italiano e' piu' difficile, le librerie in Italia qusi non sanno cosa siano e online ho trovato solo un paio di siti un po' piu' forniti.
http://www.ilnarratore.com/
http://www.audiolettori.it/

c'e' per caso qualcuno che conosce qualche grosso editore di audiolibri in itliano magri accessibile online?

Grazie.

Ciao,

Io ho qua "Marcovaldo" di Italo Calvino, letto da Marco Paolini.
Ti faccio la copia? (sssssttttttttt)
Se vuoi te lo possa mandare. Mando spesso pacchetti per italia e di solito arrivino bene.

In più ti consiglio questo sito:

Grazie per l'offerta ma ho trovato sul sito che mi hai consigliato un paio di titoli che piaceranno tantissimo a mio padre.

Quasi quasi provo a registrare un libro io. Ho un sacco di libri ed anche l'attrezatura per registrare ... tentar non nuoce.
