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.
