Al lavoro! A1
Paperback, 168 pages, additional online audio, Level A1.
A course of Italian for the workplace designed for complete beginners.
Usually the Italian taught at beginners level is presented solely in a recreational context, whereas Italian for professional purposes tends to require previous study at a more intermediate level. Al lavoro! bridges this gap and is aimed at those wanting to learn Italian from scratch but specifically in the context of work.
The course consists of two volumes: level A1 and level A2. Each volume comprises 20 short units, 10 vocabulary worksheets to speed up vocabulary acquisition, 10 skills worksheets to develop communicative competence, 4 review sections plus further exercises for each unit at the back of the book.
The accompanying audio and audio transcripts can be downloaded free of charge from the coursebook's website as well as translations of all the instructions into English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Portuguese and Chinese. Other online resources include: videos, a bilingual Italian-English glossary, 10 assessment tests, a final test on the four key skills, multimedia activities with self-correction, answer keys to all the exercises and a teacher's guide.
