Have you used this book?

Let’s be honest; learning a language is fun when you’re learning from a native speaker or when you live in a country that speaks it. But when you’re learning a language on your own or when you live in a country where you never hear the language spoken, the experience loses a lot of its luster. Top that off with a dull, standard book and studying a language can be a cumbersome task. Having the right learning material is extremely important when you learn a language; if your study guide makes you feel like you’re studying for the SATs rather than learning a language you’ll be able to enjoy using, then there’s a good chance you’ll get really bored really fast. Luckily, Nuovo Progetto Italiano 2 is a bit more interesting than your run of the mill language learning book.

This intermediate Italian study book comes with an interactive CD ROM that correlates to the topical lessons presented in each chapter of the book. Listening and reading the content together makes it a lot easier for a student to study Italian without the help of a teacher and still get the pronunciation right. Having a book and CD ROM also keeps it interesting, taking the content beyond the written word and giving the student a more thorough lesson.

The lessons include a lot of activities to give the student the chance to practice rather than simply be presented with the material. There are matching, fill in the blanks, write your own sentences/answers, and much more. The book also has conversation exercises which one would only be able to do with another student or teacher. If you are self-studying Italian, then you could probably just write down dialogues from both sides of the conversation. Of course, it’s a good idea to practice speaking, so you may want to speak aloud even if you’re alone.

"It is important to note that the book has no English in it. As a book directed at intermediate students, the content is designed for students who already have a handle on Italian."

The book has a lot of great pictures that go along with questions and activities. These are not only fun to look at, but also help you make a visual connection to the content being learned. Many times this visual association is something we overlook, but it is quite important for those wishing to advance their skills in a foreign language like Italian.

It is important to note that the book has no English in it. As a book directed at intermediate students, the content is designed for students who already have a handle on Italian. If you haven’t already started to study Italian, then you can always start with Nuovo Progetto Italiano 1 and continue on with 2nd book when you’re ready.
