With the help of feedback from teachers and students, this second edition of the Contatto course has been fully updated, enriched with extra units featuring cultural dossiers, improved exercises and engaging audio-visual content.
Written entirely in Italian, the course takes a well-rounded pragmatic approach to language learning, quickly developing communicative skills in addition to students' grammatical knowledge. Each unit comprises four clear parts dedicated to the acquisition of functional language, topical vocabulary, grammar and improved pronunciation. Helpful revision summaries conclude each unit, followed by a cultural focus point and end-of-unit test. Further exercises and a comprehensive grammar appendix are also provided.
Each volume is supported by a wealth of online resources including teacher's guides, additional activities and videos. Audio tracks, transcripts, glossaries and answer keys can be accessed online.
