Summary

This uniquely effective new introductory Italian language program meets the needs of instructors as well as learners. Three significant characteristics setAvanti!apart from other beginning Italian texts currently available: First, in response to instructors' concern that most textbooks attempt to cover too much material in the first year,Avanti!reflects reasonable expectations for the amount of material that most beginning learners can acquire in one year of classroom instruction. Second,Avanti!strives to satisfy students' desire to communicate in everyday situations right from the start. The activities guide students to communicate in truly meaningful contexts that encourage explorations of the rich Italian culture. Third, the methodology ofAvanti!is firmly grounded in the latest findings from research in second language acquisition and foreign language pedagogy. The materials provide support for instructors, particularly those with limited experience, whose goals are to teach mainly, if not exclusively, in Italian, and to create the student-centered, communicative classroom environment that is promoted by this research.
