Conversational Italian for Travelers – Textbook
We learn language and culture as we follow the character Caterina in dialogues that detail her travels through Italy. As she boards planes and trains, and finally takes a ride in her cousin’s car, we learn how to do these things in Italian. When she meets up with her Italian family, we learn phrases for communicating with others, including what to say if you meet someone special, how to go shopping, and how to use the telephone. Finally, Caterina goes on a trip to Lago Maggiore with her Italian family, and we learn phrases needed to stay at a hotel, go sightseeing, and of course, go to a restaurant and order wonderful Italian food! Many Italian dishes commonly ordered in Italian restaurants are listed in the last three chapters of the book. The Conversational Italian for Travelers textbook really makes the Italian language and culture come alive!
