Have you started your Italian lessons for Beginners?

If you take Italian lessons for Beginners, the materials you use are very important.

When you approach a new language there are some normal difficulties you go through.

A different grammatical system, a huge vocabulary to learn, a totally new culture you need to know… That is why using a good textbook is essential to make this journey easier.

When you start taking Italian lessons for Beginners at Happy Languages, you have the opportunity to use several fantastic textbooks, carefully selected for you and chosen depending on your needs.

A very good one is Chiaro! A1, published by Alma Edizioni.

Accroding to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), Chiaro! is based on a communicative approach which is strongly action-oriented.

Students are encouraged to interact and collaborate in real communicative situations where they have to use the language to reach their goals.

At the end of each unit there is also an interesting section dedicated to cultural aspects to think of when learning Italian.

This is why Chiaro! is so motivating!

Starting from scratch, you learn how to introduce yourself and exchange some useful information.

Then you approach a very common situation where you need to speak Italian: ordering in a bar is the next step!

You also learn how to talk about your daily life and express your preferences about activities to do in your spare time.

In the blink of an eye, you will be even able to talk about past events and experiences using the Past Tense!

In addition, you will learn to go shopping, talk about your hobbies and interests, describe a city, ask and give information about public transport and directions.

You will then approach how to talk about your family and describe its members and the relation between them.

At the end of the A1 level you will be ready to plan your holiday in Italy: the last topic is booking a room in a hotel, understanding simple information from a guide, talking about places you visited.

A fantastic journey, don’t you think?
