Each book presents a wealth of interesting photographs, authentic texts, infographics, questions and activities to motivate and support class discussion in the target language and the exchange of students' views and ideas.

Structured in four clear parts including a comprehensive glossary, the books offer between 35 and 45 thematic units on a variety of contemporary topics, progressing in difficulty as you move through the units.

The vast amount and variety of material on offer makes La nuova Prova orale an effective supplement to Italian language courses at all levels, and an ideal tool to get students talking in Italian.
