I really love this book! Not only does it prepare the student for the AP exam but it opens a realistic window on today's life in Italy. It is interesting and challenging - and most importantly, it makes sense. In most Italian texts the stories and the language in the dialogues feel fake and forced to a native speaker. This is what sets this book apart: it is 'real.' --Maria Giribaldi, Italian Teacher and AP Italian Coordinator, Palisades Charter High School, Palisades, CA
Faithfully following the AP Italian Exam format, this text provides solid practice for the skills necessary to pass the exam. Authentic materials, exam strategies and numerous exercises all offer thorough preparation. --Elissa Tognozzi, Ph.D., Director of Language Studies, University of California, Los Angeles and Author of Ponti
Thematic units focus on tangible topics enabling students to increase their knowledge of Italian culture while reinforcing strategies and techniques needed to master the exam. Thanks Edizioni Farinelli, you are always one step ahead! --Maria Abate De Blasio, AP Italian Teacher, Palisades Park Junior/Senior High School, Palisades Park, NJ
