Journey from Valle d’Aosta to Puglia as you continue to explore the Italian language and culture with Chiarissimo Due.
With a focus on communication, the second book in our Italian series further develops students’ abilities to ask and answer questions and to exchange opinions and ideas on a diversity of topics using a variety of different tenses.
With every turn of the page, vibrant colors and imagery will draw your students into the lives of the Italian people. Student-friendly grammar explanations with practical examples illustrate language structures introduced in context.
Chiarissimo Due is divided into 10 Siti. A Sito Preliminare (preliminary lesson), provides a general review of the material presented in Chiarissimo Uno. Siti 1-8 integrate grammar, vocabulary, and regional culture lessons with differentiated instruction in the Presentational, Interpretive, and Interpersonal modes of communication. The last Sito, Sito 9, reviews and assesses learner overall performance of previous siti.
Each chapter concludes with an abundance of listening, reading, writing, speaking, and cultural exercises and activities from the current and previous siti. The final sito, Sito 9, reviews and assesses all material covered in Chiarissimo Due.
Through Chiarissimo Uno e Chiarissimo Due, students are provided the initial foundation and preparation for the AATI National Italian Contest Examination, the AP® Italian Language and Culture Course/Exam, and the SAT Subject Test™ in Italian.
