An Italian course designed for adolescent and adult learners who wish to progress from beginners to an upper intermediate level. 'Primo Contatto' offers complete beginners a short practical introduction to Italian which can be used either as a stand-alone course or as an initial module before the beginners level 'Contatto' or 'Nuovo Contatto'.

The course takes a pragmatic, communicative approach to language learning, working on all four major skills whilst also developing students' pronunciation and grammatical knowledge. A rich array of authentic texts are integrated into the course and emphasis is placed on introducing students to Italian culture and encouraging them to make comparisons with their own.

The course book is easy-to-use with clear headings on each page regarding the skill which is being practised. At the end of each level students are provided with handy tips about how best to tackle listening, reading, speaking and writing exercises, how to enrich their vocabulary and how to effectively use a dictionary. Very much student-centred, self-evaluation charts and tables at the end of the units prompt students to consider and reflect on their most common errors. The student's book includes extra activities to complement each unit along with answers to all exercises.
