Forza! Due - Textbook
Once again, the author has gona to Italy in search of the people and places that give this language course its characteristically authentic cultural context.
The language in each chapter is grounded in photographic realism which then gives way to flights of cartoon fantasy and humour. The fotoromanzi and fumetti are blended with authentic documents such as posters and advertising brochures to provide students with an interesting variety of text types. These are all exploited in a range of exercises and activities that take full advantage of the visual stimulus provided by colour photographs and illustrations.
This course is deliberately aimed at the multi-level classroom. It offers both a measure of enjoyable success to those who find language study difficult, as well as a satisfying chanllenge to the more linguistically gifted.
Used together with the Forza! due Workbook, this textbook provides extensive practice in listening to, speaking, reading and writing Italian.
