Foundations Italian : 1 -- 2nd ed.
Mara Benetti, Carmela Murtas and Caterina Varchetta (2008)
A beginner course in Italian comprising a text with 2 accompanying cds.
The ten units are well structured, presenting new material in the 'Core' section (generally based on a short listening passage) followed by slightly more challenging extension material, a two-page grammar section, unit-by-unit glossary and pair-work activities.
A good starting point for those who like to approach language in a systematic way.
