"Corso comunicativo di italiano per stranieri" (A1-B2)

From a leading voice in the field of Foreign Language Teaching and Research comes this effective communicative course, blending tried-and-tested methodology with modern innovation. Short inductive lessons favour oral comprehension and lexical development to engage students and to heighten language acquisition. This is coupled with a more traditional structure of comprehension, analysis and summary which reflects the natural process of learning a language.

The student's book consists of five units, each divided into six class-based lessons of approx. 2-3 hours duration plus independent study. Each unit also includes at least one section dedicated to Italian culture and society with activities to broaden vocabulary. 'La palestra di italiano' at the end of each unit provides students with a range of revision exercises in addition to supplementary worksheets online.

The teacher's guide, MP3 audio and transcripts are available for free online as well as a variety of further complementary resources: Multilingual glossaries - Grammar notes - Songs and arias adapted for beginner's students - Picture dictionary - Cultural videos. Access to a digital version of each book is also provided.
