Video La mappa misteriosa: episode 10 - Off the beaten track

TLF ID M013734

This is episode 10 of 'La mappa misteriosa', a 12-episode video series for Italian language students. This episode focuses on revising some of the language functions encountered in previous episodes, such as the use of 'c'è' and 'ci sono', how to talk on the phone and how to exchange directions. It introduces more words for Italian means of transport and gives socio-historical facts about the Italian state train system. The story, based in Bologna, follows Renata and her nephew Marco while they try to solve the mystery of a map that leads to a secret 'recipe'. Bookmarks are provided to move back and forth within the episode.
