The Italian Project 1a

T. Marin - S. Magnelli
Course of Italian language for English speaking students. Beginners (A1)


The Italian Project 1a is the first of four levels of a modern multimedia Italian course for teenage and adult students (Beginners – level A1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

It is the English version in two volumes of Nuovo Progetto Italiano 1. In fact, the instructions of the exercises and the notes inside the grammar tables are in English while the texts of Conosciamo l’Italia are accompanied by an Italian-English glossary. The book is completed by the Grammar Appendix and by the Grammar notes (both in English) and by the Italian-English Glossary with the translation of all the words and expressions of the Student’s book and Workbook. The Italian Project 1a contains the updated version of the workbook, where the activities always reflect the subdivision in sections of the students’ book and the organization of its references. Other characteristics:
  • full colour layout and new functional illustrations accompanying the exercises;
  • a ‘spiral’ approach, which sees structures and words that students have met in previous units regularly re-introduced in subsequent units;
  • a greater variety of teaching techniques;
  • one or two revision activities per unit focusing on lexical and communicative functions;
  • repetition is avoided and, by using authentic material, the exercises are contextualised;
  • the video activities (video “episodes”) are now found at the end of each unit so that the video material (Nuovo Progetto italiano Video) fits in better with the other resources that make up the course;
  • the updated edition of the exercises is also available in interactive format on the i-d-e-e platform too.
