Summary: Con fantasia provides teachers and intermediate students of Italian with a source of language, discourse, and contemporary cultural topics that make the review of Italian a pleasant and meaningful experience, taking the language beyond the text. To develop the ability to use the language in an autonomous, spontaneous, and creative way, learners must go beyond a grammar and vocabulary review format, with materials and activities designed to help them become more consciously aware of t ...show morehe uses of the language they are studying. The primary purpose of this book is to allow students to realize this goal-to become autonomous speakers of Italian--, and it encourages them throughout to use the language on their own terms for specific purposes.
The learning flow (1) starts from a spontaneous and creative recall phase (Avvio), (2) moves through a formal review phase (Vocabolario, Grammatica, and Comunicazione), (3) engages students textually with cultural information (Nota culturale and Dalla letteratura italiana), (4) provides opportunities for the use of the language in a creative fashion (Con fantasia), and (5) exposes students to the use of the language in the framework of our constantly changing world (Dal mondo italiano and Navigare su Internet).
