Contatto: Primo Contatto con esercizi: Book + CD (A1) (Italian)
The volume is part of the Contact course. Contact is a multi-level course (from A1 to B2, according to the indications of the Common European Framework) for young-adult and adult foreign students who attend Italian courses in Italy or abroad. It is built following a pragmatic-communicative approach, without however neglecting the development and systematic learning of grammar. It presents a rich selection of authentic texts, chosen for their content interest, and for their sociolinguistic variety and textual genre: each text is explored in analysis and re-use paths graded by difficulty. Information on Italian civilization and culture is highlighted in the texts, in the Comparison between cultures boxes and in the Dossier sections. The volume closes with a section of Strategies for learning, cards with advice and exercises for each of the linguistic skills and for memorizing and systematizing the lexicon learned, and an appendix of functional and grammatical synthesis.
