Enhance your Italian reading skills with this primer for premium results!
Easy Italian Reader is based on the premise that the best way to learn a language is to start reading it, immediately. Suitable for raw beginners to intermediate-level language learners, this bestselling title features engaging readings of progressive difficulty that allow you to rapidly build comprehension. Part I provides the story of Christine, an American girl whose family moves to Italy; Part II describes episodes from the colorful history of Italy; and Part III contains three stories from contemporary Italian literature.
New to this second edition is accompanying material in the McGraw-Hill Education Language Lab app:
- Recordings of 35 passages from the book (all of Part I; Volevo i pantaloni and Vita in Part III)
- Additional pre-reading flashcards, grouped into Nomi, Aggettivi and Verbi
- Additional post-reading exercises from the author for every passage
Note: audio recordings (totaling 80 minutes) require Internet access.
