Meet the authors and discover how Dieci can improve and enrich Italian lessons for teachers and students:

Dieci boasts a clear, straightforward structure that is versatile and easy to follow. Each volume consists of 10 short lessons divided into independent, double-page sections which can be easily completed in one or two sessions.

Each volume includes:
• a video course in 10 episodes; 
• extra projects and optional group activities;
• dedicated sections on grammar and pronunciation;
• an illustrated dictionary with vocabulary exercises;
• a cultural comic-strip, Vivere e pensare all’italiana.

To conclude each unit, handy lists of 10 key rules or phrases, plus 10 interesting cultural highlights, provide practical points of focus and reflection.

What's more, Dieci offers two brand-new original features, designed to maximise memorisation and enhance intonation even beyond the classroom:

• talking texts - additional recordings of written texts from the lesson, for students to return to in their own time.
• ascolto immersivo© - extended moments of relaxed concentration for effortless language acquisition at home. Elements of dialogue set to a soothing soundtrack...

Simply sit back, relax and immerse yourself in the sound of la bella lingua!
