Parliamo italiano insieme 2 has been completely revised, with new and updated texts and activities, a new design and new illustrations throughout to engage students. This second edition provides more opportunities for differentiated learning through careful grading and scaffolding, and presentation of content in more manageable chunks, but still includes plenty of extension activities for more capable students. The new edition is supported by a rich and varied suite of brand-new digital resources for both students and teachers, including audio, grammar videos, interactive quizzes, worksheets, tests and more.


Parliamo italiano insieme 2, 2e kicks off with a new revision chapter to ensure a smooth transition from Level 1 to Level 2.

Vibrant new cartoon stories in Unità 1-10 deliver core language through relatable characters and engaging dialogues.

The Testi (reading texts) in each chapter are graded from easy to more challenging.

Two enrichment chapters (Unità 11 and 12) cater for students continuing into Year 11 or for more advanced students.

All digital resources are easily accessible in one place on NelsonNet, and each unit has a dowloadable zip file containing all audio tracks.
