Ciao!'s thematically based chapters focus on everyday situations that walk students through contemporary Italian culture. Ciao! provides students with exceptionally clear grammar explanations and functional vocabulary in context. Now, in the Fifth Edition, this highly successful program maintains its strong focus on spoken proficiency and cultural awareness, while adding new readings with targeted writing activities for additional practice.


  • Ciao! provides unparalleled grammar explanations with clear presentations of language structures.
  • NEW! Revised and updated website activities include cultural links and activities, and grammar practice correlated to each chapter.
  • NEW! The opening part of each chapter, now named Avvio, has been expanded and refined in order to activate prior knowledge of vocabulary, grammatical structures, and ways of communicating, allowing students to recall the material prior to formal review and to engage creatively with the text.
  • NEW! The Taccuino culturale sections have been revised and updated to reflect current cultural realities, such as Euro prices.
  • NEW! A new end-of-chapter feature, Il mondo digitale, presents new trends in discourse in Italian, such as sending e-mails and chatting on the Internet.
  • Abundant opportunities for pair and group work appear throughout the text.
  • ATTIVITÀ SUPPLEMENTARI, the wrap-up activity section, thoroughly integrates realia and other culturally informative visuals.
  • STUDIO DI PAROLE activities actively promote both vocabulary acquisition and cultural understanding.
  • NEW! Updated cultural presentations, including the change of LIRA references to EUROS, keep this edition current.
  • NEW! Each chapter now includes ADESSO SCRIVIAMO! writing activities, based on LETTURA READINGS.
  • NEW! Key changes to the scope and sequence make the new edition of Ciao! more balanced. The essential past tenses, the PASSATO PROSSIMO and the IMPERFETTO, are presented earlier and in closer proximity to each other. The PASSATO REMOTO, previously presented in the Appendix, is now presented within the chapters for recognition purposes.
  • NEW! Essential basic vocabulary, including days of the week, months, dates, and numbers, is presented earlier in the text for this edition to facilitate basic communication in the preliminary chapter.
  • NEW! Pre-reading and post-reading activities now accompany the final chapter readings in the PAGINA CULTURALE sections. More varied and authentic selections include literary texts, journalistic pieces, and realia.
