Text Italian: units 13-24

TLF ID M013820

These lesson plans, introduced by an overview mapping document, are twelve progressive units of work that constitute a beginner to intermediate course in Italian, covering themes such as the school system, describing people, literature, weather reports, cities, the planetary system, immigration, time and money. The plans provide core texts (eg poems, stories, articles) around which a web of tasks and drills, covering all macro skills, is developed. They also include objectives, word lists, grammar, additional useful language, expected prior learning, and suggestions for activities. These units are preceded by twelve beginners lessons.
