This is an innovative book of exercises and language tasks for all learners of Italian, which can be used independently or alongside Modern Italian Grammar. Divided into three sections, this highly useful text includes:
- exercises based on essential grammatical structures
- everyday functions practice such as making introductions and expressing needs
- realistic role plays in short scenes, set in a range of different contexts.
Implementing feedback from its predecessor, this updated second edition features exercises graded on a three-point scale according to their level of difficulty and cross-referencing to the Modern Italian Grammar for each.
Also containing a comprehensive answer key for checking progress, this is a complete reference work suitable for both class-use and self-study.
