E.I.L. Italian: An Audio-Lingual Course. Volume I.
Fantini, Alvino E.
This basic textbook for Italian contains 10 units. The text is adaptable for use in an academic institution (Completion time is expected to be one year.), in an intensive program (completion time is about 90-120 hours.), or in independent study. The vocabulary is limited and only basic, essential, grammatical structures are included. Although audiolingual skills are stressed, reading and writing skills may be taught at the discretion of the teacher. Each unit contains a conversation, oral drill materials on the conversation and new vocabulary, pronunciation drills, extensive pattern practices on structural items, conversational drills, translation exercises, narratives for reading practice, a grammatical synopsis, a lexical summary, and supplementary materials for teaching Italian culture. Correlated, taped materials are intended to be used with the text. (WB)
