Italian 400

New Italian Espresso 2 Textbook

New Italian Espresso 2 Workbook


Italian 400 is designed for students who have an established high intermediate knowledge of Italian and is the first course in our advanced Italian language series. During this course, students will learn the congiuntivo imperfetto, the construction come se + congiuntivo, and the discorso indiretto and will be introduced to the concordanza dei tempi. A glance at the forma passiva and passato remoto will complete this level. They will also grow their vocabulary on expressions used in the various communications platforms and the specific language of social media compared to the one used in literature. At the end of the course, students will be able to give explanations, report words of a third party, recount the plot of a book, express interests, and preferences, ask for and give advice, and much more.  Your teacher is Ylenia.
