Primo 1 Teacher Resource Pack and CD

By | Copyright Year:2009 | ISBN-13: 9780170180641

Primo is a series of topic-based units providing students with a taste of Italian
language and culture. Each topic covered in the workbook is supported by videos,
songs, listening tasks and photographic slideshows on the Teacher’s CD-ROM.
Primo is designed to allow teachers and students to put together their own course by
choosing the topics that interest them. It is designed to cover one term, one semester
or one year, simply by trying more units or taking your time covering them all in
more detail.

Primo 1 covers the topics of the students’ personal life and their environment.
This book can be used as an introduction course in itself, or it can be split up into
topics and used in conjunction with the topics in book 2, and beyond.
Primo 2 covers more cultural topics, such as fashion, food, sport, tourism, the
environment and entertainment. This book has a distinctive intercultural focus,
which allows students to build vocabulary around a range of cultural topics.
