TLF ID M012937

This collection of digital and printable resources introduces the names for most common pets and the functions to describe their size, colour and body, using the core question 'Com'è il tuo/la tua...?'. It focuses on the use of big and small ('grande' and 'piccolo'), basic colours, and expressions to describe fur ('pelo'), feathers ('piume'), scales ('squame') and shell ('guscio'). Translations, solutions and flashcards are also provided. This is section 15 of 36 from Languages online Italian resources, produced by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Victoria.
