This engaging Italian course adopts a flexible communicative approach, providing students with a solid grounding in both the language and culture of Italy. Packed full of vibrant images, varied exercises, and with a strong focus on practical everyday usage, the structure of Bellissimo! facilitates smooth and clear progression in all four linguistic skills, while the content supports both grammatical and intercultural reflection.

The first three volumes take students from beginner's level A1 through to intermediate level B1, while the fourth volume Bellissimo! B2-C1 helps students reach an advanced level of Italian. The integrated workbooks offers substantial opportunity for practice and consolidation of each unit, with extra pages dedicated to Italian culture and also to preparing for the CELI, CILS and PLIDA examinations.

Levels A1, A2 and B1 each consist of twelve 10-page units which are divided into four sections: 'Primi passi' provides a visual introduction to each topic; 'Guarda e ascolta, Leggi, Scrivi' focuses on the four key skills; 'Per riflettere' provides grammar summaries and activities; followed by the short self-assessment section 'Cosa so fare in italiano?'.

Volume B2-C1 also consists of 10 thematic units; these provide an engaging introduction to everyday Italian expressions, idioms and dialects, and present a variety of authentic written texts and dialogues to deepen students' knowledge and understanding of how the language is used in Italy today. Each unit concludes with a revision section to consolidate the grammar, vocabulary and structures covered.

Online resources for both pupil and teacher complement the course, while the student books are also available in digital multimedia format, ideal for the Interactive Whiteboard.
