"Not only does Parliamo Italiano provide readers learning Italian with a strong ground in the four ACTFL skills - reading, writing, speaking, and listening - but it also emphasizes cultural fluency. The book follows a more visual approach by integrating maps, photos, realia, and cultural notes that offer a vibrant image of Italy. The chapters are organized 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."--Provided by publisher.
