Foundations Italian 2 is part of the only language series to be written specifically for the institution-wide language programmes (IWLPs) in HE institutions where languages are taught to non-specialist undergraduates. The series is designed to fit the two semester year, with inbuilt supplementary material to cater for different numbers of contact hours and abilities. Written by experienced IWLP practitioners the series is carefully tailored to meet the needs and interests of HE students. This is a post-beginner's course, and follows on from the highly successful Foundations Italian 1. Two cassettes are available with a site licence included in the price. Tapescripts are available free on request.
