Developed for beginners, the Italianissimo course book is designed to accompany the Italianissimo CDs (9780563519270) but can also be used on its own to develop your reading and writing skills. With its emphasis on enjoying Italy and all it has to offer culturally, Italianissimo will teach you all the language you need to make the most of your time abroad. Its unique twin-track approach allows you to decide how you want to learn. Choose either the quicker route, concentrating on communication, or the more detailed route if you wish to understand the language and grammar in more depth. Ten structured units present the main language of the course, with additional grammar and exercise sections provided at regular intervals to reinforce learning. Italianissimo can help you reach the equivalent level of a first qualification, such as GCSE. This 279-page course book is also available to buy as part of a pack that includes four 75-minute audio CDs (9781406676136).
