"L'italiano al punto giusto!" This modern, action-oriented course pays close attention to vocabulary and the development of effective communication skills, highlighting the key aspects of Italian grammar throughout. The clear and simple structure is easy to follow, while the motivating topics, activities and end-of-unit tasks encourage interest, participation and social interaction both inside and outside the classroom.

The course features contemporary cultural material on a variety of topics, e.g. art, history, famous people, geography, the Made in Italy industry. Other features of the books include a final grammar summary and an additional exercise section specially designed to complement study for the CILS, CELI and PLIDA exams.

Al dente is a compact course: the student's book and workbook for each level come together in one single volume. Also included are all the audio tracks on CD plus authentic original video material on DVD. The teacher's guides and digital resources suitable for the Interactive Whiteboard are available separately, while the answer keys, audio tracks in MP3 format and the audio and video transcripts are also available to download for free online.

NEW MATERIAL FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS - Supplementary resources written in English for both Al dente 1 (A1) and Al dente 2 (A2) are now available to download for free: a useful 'Handbook for English speakers' which provides English translations of all the instructions in each coursebook; copies of the Grammar sections in the coursebook with all the notes and explanations written in English; and two Italian-English glossaries (one unit-by-unit glossary and one complete alphabetical list).

PREMIUM EDITIONS - Al dente is now also available in interactive digital format on the Blink Learning platform. Premium Editions of the coursebook include 12-month access to the interactive Ebook.
