Eccoci!, Euro Edition

Eccoci!, Euro Edition (EHEP000516) cover image
Eccoci! is a comprehensive beginning Italian program that features innovative student-oriented materials and learning goals. Grounded in what we believe is the most effective methodology, Eccoci! has been conceived and developed to provide sound language learning, dynamic interaction, and flexibility.

Because students learn best from materials that are fun, interesting, and relevant, the activities, readings, and authentic documents in Eccoci! foster creativity and encourage the use of Italian in meaningful, everyday situations while promoting cultural awareness and appreciation. Student learning, in fact, is supported throughout the book. Eccoci! is the first Italian textbook structured for manageable teaching and learning at different institutions. Its innovative presentation of grammar in separate sections called Grammatica and Espansione grammaticale offers both fundamental structures and optional, expanded grammatical explanations.

Presentation
A pair of striking photos announce the chapter region and theme. A geographical photo is accompanied by basic information about the region while a thematic photo introduces the communication goals, the grammatical structures, and the cultural topic. The photos may be used as a warm-up or as an end-of-chapter activity.


Per cominciare
This presents the thematic vocabulary and grammatical structures, which become the active material for the chapter, in two meaningful contexts: via an illustrated text or authentic document and via a dialogue (or dialogues), called Incontri.


Nota culturale
Presents topics related to the chapter theme. Specific terms are explained or pertinent statistics are provided at the outset, preparing students to understand and discuss the text. Each Nota culturale is followed by a set of comprehension questions or discussion points.


Grammatica
Is divided into several manageable sections, each built around the specific function the grammar serves. The structure iteself is introduced in context via a set of sample sentences. Each grammar explanation is followed by a set of Attivita, which progress from controlled manipulation of the structure to open-ended communication, with ample opportunity for student interaction in pairs and groups.
