… and five more.
Each illustration contains dozens of common objects, clearly labeled in Italian. By studying the illustrations, students can learn over 500 words for common household items, clothing, foods, vehicles, furniture, names of animals, parts of the body, types of stores and public buildings, and much more.
To help reinforce words and meanings, all the scenes in this book are ideal for coloring. In addition, a complete list of Italian words (with definite articles) and English translations will be found at the back of the book. The result is an attractive and useful language resource that will appeal to any student of basic Italian, child or adult.
