Giardino italiano: An Intermediate Language Program

By Francesco Bonavita

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Dec 30, 2010

Description

Giardino italiano is an intermediate level Italian language textbook designed for a one-semester course.

 

It uses communicative language teaching techniques for the purpose of developing oral proficiency among students. Although this book is not a grammar driven program, the text does afford students ample opportunities to practice grammatical structures as well as offering users a comprehensive grammatical reference section, for in-class or out-of-class review and practice. The grammatical explanations represent a clear point of reference and teachers may dwell on it if it meets their particular needs. The chapters are designed to reflect current vocabulary and expressions used in modern Italian, as well as offering students a glimpse of everyday life situations. A language is learned best when the individual is invited to personalize situations as they occur in everyday life.  Research shows that learning a second language takes place when students are afforded the opportunity to construct, to manipulate, and to experiment with their newly acquired language. Each chapter presents ample opportunities for students to create conversations and to think in the target language. 

 

MyItalianLab will be available for fall 2011 courses.
