: Middle school and high school students who are taking Italian and finding the learning process painful will change their minds when they open this book. Separate lessons teach important and interesting aspects of Italian culture while also presenting lessons in Italian vocabulary, grammar, and conversational Italian. Brief exercises that help students measure their learning progress cover grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and idioms. Structured in a workbook format, Painless Italian
is a language immersion course, but with one important difference: it immerses students gradually and painlessly into the details of Italian language and Italy's rich culture.
