Magari

book_magari

Magari is an Italian course book for intermediate and advanced students (from B1 to C1 of the European Common Framework).

It is highly recommended for students who have fair knowledge of Italian (B1 level) and wish to refresh and improve their language abilities in order to proceed to a higher level (C1). Through Magari students will work on morph syntactic structures and style forms commonly used in Italian, but hardly ever dealt with in Italian course books. Magari also offers a new, more complete approach to the study of more conventional and elementary materials.

A strong cultural approach is one of the book's main features. Didactic units are divided into five thematic macro-areas (Society, Arts, Language, History, Geography) that outline a multifaceted, non stereotyped profile of past and present Italy in order to illustrate its most significant socio-cultural phenomena, ideas, trends, and today's life styles.

Magari is graphically designed as a magazine and includes articles, info boxes, images, charts, and cultural boxes that make it a unique product when compared to currently available Italian course books.

From a methodological point of view Magari is characterized by a strong focus on: - textuality - conversation analysis and pragmatics analysis (oral language) and analysis of text genres and discourse (written language) - a spiral presentation of grammar through a process by steps of "falsifications" and further redefinitions of grammar rules - a lexical analysis based on the Lexical Approach - involving activities and the cooperative learning approach - the use of unconventional motivation strategies - original, creative, ludic and structured strategies.

Magari includes:
a student’s book complete with

  • 21 didactic units;
  • 21 chapters of exercises;
  • a systematic grammar;
  • three self evaluation tests at the end of each level (B1, B2, C1);
  • exercise keys;

2 audio CDs complete with:

  • authentic spoken language tracks;
  • exercises for class work;
