Educational details

Educational value
  • This is a highly valuable resource for the Communicating and Understanding strands of the Australian Curriculum in years 7 to 10, both Beginners and Continuers pathways. It supports developing knowledge of proper linguistic terminology to discuss and compare the Italian and English systems of language. It supports understanding of how word-by-word equivalence is not possible between Italian, English and any language, and that students always need to act as 'mediator' between languages.
  • It is a useful tool to learn and consolidate phonology skills, with pronunciation drills based on single words in isolation as well as in short sentences, which also exemplify cutural usage.
