Overview

SALVE!, Second Edition is a complete introductory Italian program that introduces students to Italian life and culture while furthering their skills to understand and express common words and phrases in Italian. Students are exposed to the vibrant life of modern day Italy and its rich cultural heritage through the Sulla Strada video clips which give your students a taste of everyday life in Italy while providing a wealth of activities in both the text and online. The integration of video, suggestions for music, internet and GoogleEarth searches, and a distinctive focus on Italy's varied regions, make this text essential for anyone interested in learning Italian. Students are invited to talk about their education, family, friends, tastes, leisure activities, their past and their plans for the future, and encourages them to make cross-cultural comparisons and connections from their own life with those of their Italian counterparts. Students will also discover the different Italian regions and their distinctive characteristics. SALVE! is a complete, streamlined program that is highly-effective for courses with a two-semester or reduced hour sequence. The text uses a manageable "building block method" introducing the structures of the language through an easy-to-understand dialogue and narrative, and by recycling essential vocabulary throughout each chapter.

  • NEW: Each chapter now has a new feature, Le regioni d'Italia, which offers students a chapter by chapter, virtual tour of the different regions of Italy. This section presents the students with a view of the various Italian regions wiith links to the SALVE!, 2e website, where students are invited to connect to the link where they find photos and descriptive information on each region.
  • NEW: The Note culturali (two per chapter) are designed to expand cultural knowledge and information that students will find linked to the website.
  • NEW video segments have been added to 6 of the 14 chapters. They are designed to explore in greater depth key cultural or social themes introduced in the chapters, like university life, the home, work, and art and theater.
  • NEW exercises following the old and new video segments are now more tightly integrated with the chapter's grammar and vocabulary and are designed to work in unison with the chapter's thematic and substantive content.
  • NEW video footage has been filmed in Italy to match specific topics for each of the chapters. The post viewing exercises are divided into two parts with the first part being closely tied to the vocabulary and the second to the grammar of the chapter.
  • NEW: A 'Partecipazione' section asks students to discuss with each other, the topic of the video and relate what they saw and heard to their own experiences.
  • The grammar concepts are presented in La Grammatica and each point is visually captured with a cartoon, photo, or piece of realia related to the new linguistic concept, with clear and concise explanations.
  • Each chapter's major themes and content are recombined in the Per finire reading section, which is a more advanced narrative or dialogue that is audio-recorded and available in mp3 format. This section is accompanied by comprehension and personal questions that ask students to use their imagination and to express their own opinions, and talk about their own experiences and feelings. The readings are filled with cultural content to convey several aspects of the Italian society today.
  • The Ascoltiamo!, Adesso scriviamo! and Parliamo insieme! sections represent the listening, writing and communicative speaking opportunities. They are all based on realistic contexts that guide students to write and speak in a personally meaningful way.
  • The Attualità reading section, based on authentic texts, provides students the opportunity to explore aspects of the chapter's thematic and cultural content in greater depth. In the second edition, many 'Attualità' have been updated to include new material and to present today's Italian society from cultural, social and economic points of view.
  • The core of SALVE! consists of 14 chapters. They are preceded by a preliminary chapter, Capitolo preliminare, which deals with Italian pronunciation and cognates, and by a short introductory chapter, Primo incontro, which focuses on common everyday expressions and useful classroom vocabulary.
  • The Informazioni and Le regioni d'Italia sections present High and Low C culture together. A brief, chapter by chapter, introduction to the regions of Italy, resides next to a more detailed description of a chapter theme so that students see a concept from varied perspectives.
  • The note culturali (two per chapter) are designed to expand cultural information that students will find linked to a website. They add depth to an interesting cultural or practical point to allow students to go on-line and research the subject further on their own. They are also useful for class discussion, to exchange opinions and compare with their own culture.
