Chiarissimo Uno is a classroom-tested, novice Italian language program. The book contains a multitude of simple, clear lessons and exercises presented in an engaging fashion to keep students interested in learning Italian language and culture. It is rich with written and spoken communicative activities with differentiated instruction that will enhance students’ performance in the Presentational, Interpersonal, and Interpretive aspects of communication.
Chiarissimo Uno can provide novice level Italian students:
A Solid Foundation
Students will learn tospeak with the correct pronunciation and intonation, greet people informally and formally, and use time, days, months, seasons, numbers, and weather expressions. They will learn to ask and answer simple questions using short phrases or sentences, engage in conversations in the present and past tenses and other basic competencies.
Aspects of Italian culture are incorporated in every lesson. Each chapter introduces the novice learner to an Italian region. Culturally relevant and linguistically authentic activities strengthen the student’s confidence, enthusiasm and interest in the Italian language and culture, encouraging them to continue to pursue the study of this valuable language and culture.
Preparation for Future Challenges
Chiarissimo Uno incorporates language and culture to give students the essential foundation needed to work toward the Italian Language and Culture AP® exam and the SAT in Italian. Learners will also be prepared to compete nationally on the AATI National Italian Contest Examination.
