Even more flexible, lively, and diverse with the full support of online technology, the seventh edition of CIAO! continues to emphasize practical, communicative use of Italian by teaching the four language skills and providing an enhanced introduction to Italian life and culture. The new edition is distinguished by the integration of video and music, allowing a new perspective on the cultural aspects of Italian life and culture, as well as a refreshing venue for practicing new grammar and vocabulary. A fully interactive and engaging eBook allows students to take advantage of a more portable, downloadable course in introductory Italian. The thematically based chapters are enhanced by "Vedute d'Italia" sections, which focus on the vibrant life of modern-day Italy and the country's rich cultural heritage. CIAO! offers a proven approach known for its thorough grammar presentation and consistent grammar practice. Activities involve student collaboration and move the learners from more form-focused to more communicative exercises in each chapter. Students find that CIAO! provides an all-in-one grammar and vocabulary program that allows them to communicate in Italian with confidence and gives them a unique cultural perspective on an ever-changing Italy.
