Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a highly valuable resource for both the Communicating and the Understanding strands of the Italian language curriculum for Foundation to year 8, especially the years 7 and 8 beginner pathway. It develops fundamental functions to ask and say your own and others' ages, by exemplifying, drilling pronunciation and setting the language in very predictable contexts.
  • This resource also has value in introducing and developing oral productive skills, concentrating on some fundamental sounds of Italian phonology, through simple exchanges, which are particularly accurate for primary years and beginner pathway learners. It also facilitates beginner pathway learners when observing similarities and differences between Italian and English, and possibly other known languages.
