Text Italian: units 1-12

TLF ID M013819

These lesson plans, introduced by an overview mapping document, are twelve progressive units of work that constitute a beginner course in Italian, covering themes such as salutations, introductions, celebrations, family and friends, simple transactions, weather, clothing, likes and dislikes, hobbies and favourite pets. The plans provide core texts (eg games, songs, stories) around which a web of tasks and drills, covering all macro skills, is developed. The plans provide objectives, core word lists, grammar, additional useful language, students' prior learning and teaching suggestions. These 12 units are the first in a complete series of 24 units.
