Contatti 2 Italian Intermediate Course 2nd Edition revised
Coursebook and CDs
Reformatted version of Contatti 2, the second stage of the best-selling Contatti course for learners of Italian, helping students to build on skills already learnt and introducing new language and grammar structures in a lively way.
Contatti is the best-selling course for anybody wishing to learn Italian, whether for work or pleasure. The course offers a thorough grounding in the language and enables you to speak, read, write and understand contemporary Italian.
In Part 2 of the course, the emphasis is on communication, with modern and authentic reading and listening materials providing the basis for a wide range of interesting activities. The use of English is kept to a minimum but full vocabulary and grammar support are provided. With 2 audio CDs included in the book, Contatti 2 is the perfect follow-on for anyone who has already studied the basics of Italian.
Contatti 2 is ideal for group study and will also be a useful aid for independent learners. It covers all the skills and structures required to bridge the gap between intermediate and advanced level.
Free online practice resources and activities for use in the classroom and for self-study are a valuable addition to the course. A Support Book, containing answers to the activities in the Coursebook and transcripts of all the audio content, is now available to download for free online.
