Via dei Verbi 1 - Alessandra Giglio, Laura Morano
Activities, games, multilingual verb dictionary for Italian learners. Beginner - Intermediate level (A1-B1)
Via dei Verbi 1 is aimed at beginner and intermediate students of Italian (Levels A1-B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). It is both a multilingual dictionary of the most commonly used verbs, as well as a workbook to help use those verbs correctly. Via dei Verbi 1 can be used either in class as a support to the main course books, or for self-study, thanks to the answer key included in the appendix.
The volume is divided into four sections:
- The first section includes a useful multilingual dictionary and a guide on how to use the most frequent verbs. For each verb additional information is provided: translation into five languages (English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese); proper auxiliary verb (to be or to have); and an example to clarify the meaning of the verb in context.
- The second section offers a wide range of exercises and games divided by level of competence (A1, A2, B1). These include multiple choice tests, matching exercises, crosswords, etc.
- The third section also contains a wide range of exercises divided by level of competence and organised alphabetically. This means students can choose to practice on verbs of a specific level or on all the verbs starting with a specific letter.
- The fourth section presents grammar tables briefly showing verb formation and tense accordance.
