Pronti…Via! is a complete beginning Italian language course that focuses on communication skills without excluding grammar. This timely program is based in solid language acquisition theory and reflects a varied approach that includes using language for real communication, developing linguistic ability in a natural way, and learning the language by acquiring a firm knowledge of grammar. Five years in the making and class-tested at the University of Georgia by the author and her colleagues, this first edition of Pronti…Via! received extensive peer review, detailed editorial development, and a user-friendly design that combine to make Pronti…Via! a program that merits serious consideration.
