Text Visting family: near and far

TLF ID M012935

This collection of interactive and printable resources introduces ways of saying who you are going to visit, and whether places are far or near, with emphasis on core expressions such as 'chi vai a trovare?' and 'vado a trovare ...' It builds on learners' pronunciation skills with drills based on simple exchanges and provides a range of exercises where students need to use the correct form of the verb 'andare' and the adverbs 'vicino' and 'lontano'. Translations, solutions and flashcards for core vocabulary are also provided. This is section 13 of 36 from Languages online Italian resources, produced by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victoria.



Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a highly valuable resource for the Communicating and Understanding strands of the Italian language curriculum for years 3 to 8. It supports learning of one of the crucial Italian verbs, 'andare' (to go), both in isolation and in simple social interactions, in conjunction with other verbs like 'abitare'.
  • This resource is also valuable for recognising and reflecting upon recurrent patterns in Italian phonological and morphological systems, and in syntax and grammar, in order to apply them more independently with known and new words.
