Review:

This volume represents the first real attempt to teach Sicilian using the current thinking about how languages are learned. It is designed to empower the student to communicate his thoughts in Sicilian to native speakers. It provides not only the linguistic tools that are needed to communicate, but also the cultural information essential to communication. It consists of 18 chapters plus a preliminary lesson. Each chapter presents grammatical points that are integrated with useful exercises that make sure that the students not only understand the rules but are able to manipulate the language in creative ways. Each chapter contains dialogues, often humorous, readings and other linguistic material that present a comprehensive picture of the culture of Sicily. As students' understanding increases, the culture of Sicily is highlighted through well written and humorous readings dealing with a number of aspects of Sicilian life, geography, history, myth, and poetry. --Sicilia Parra, xxiv-2, Fall 2102
