This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition.
Not only does Parliamo Italiano provide students learning Italian with a strong ground in the four ACTFL skills - reading, writing, speaking, and listening - but it also emphasises cultural fluency. The text follows a more visual approach by integrating maps, photos, realia, and cultural notes that offer a vibrant image of Italy. The chapters are organised around functions and activities. Cultural information has been updated to make the material more relevant. In addition, discussions on functional communications give readers early success in the language and encourage them to use it in practical situations. This communicative, culture-based introductory Italian text develops all five language skills by pairing cultural themes with essential grammar points and by organizing units around situations, functions, and regions of Italy. The authors' belief that language is culture and culture is language is best illustrated by the text's up-to-date, fresh image of Italy and Italians and by the successful integration of this philosophy as an active, key part of the learning experience. Parliamo italiano!, 4e brings Italy into the classroom, immersing the reader in the geography, customs, daily routines, literature, music and general culture of Italy, while providing a strong basis for development of basic language skills - reading, writing, speaking, listening and cultural competency.
