This book explores the motivations of adult second language (L2) learners to learn Italian in continuing education settings in Australia. It focuses on their motivational drives, learning trajectories and related dynamics of identity development triggered by the learning process. Central to the study are adult L2 learners, who are still a largely under-researched and growing group of learners, and readers will gain a better understanding of the learning process of this specific group of learners and ideas for sustaining L2 adult learning motivation in continuing education settings. Furthermore, the book discusses the role played by the Italian migrant community in Australia in making Italian a sought-after language to learn. It explores how a migrant community may influence motivation, and highlights and expands on the notion of L2 learning contexts, showing the existence of sociocultural environments where second language learning trajectories are affected by the presence of migrant groups.

Tutto bene! is an entertaining and comprehensive multi-level Italian language course for beginners, uniquely designed for both the classroom and a high degree of independent learning. Based on the communicative approach, the course comprises a combination of components in a range of media. Book 2 is for learners who already have a basic knowledge of Italian or who have completed level 1. In this level you will extend your range of conversation topics. Arrange an outing, deal with transportation and timetables and find your way around an Italian city or town. Learn to talk in more detail about yourself and your extended family. If you’re interested in Italian food, this level is for you. You will learn the important language of recipes and cooking, enough to follow a class in Italian. Choose and buy ingredients at the market. Know the difference between gelato alla nocciola and gelato al lampone. Tutto bene! Book 2 provides strong consolidation, further developing your conversational and writing skills as well as your knowledge of grammar. The key components for each level of Tutto bene! are as follows: Tutto bene! book The book presents the Tutto bene! course in a format designed primarily for the classroom but accessible to the independent learner and complementary to the app. Each level of the course comprises a book with ten self-contained yet progressively linked lessons. Each lesson is carefully structured to introduce new language via an episode of the sitcom series followed by graduated conversation practise, ranging from limited to more open-ended dialogues where students apply the language they’ve acquired. Listening and responding activities are integral to each lesson, as are the simple explanations and deductive activities enabling students to understand the grammar. Writing activities are given at the end of every lesson and may be completed in class or later. Tutto bene! sitcom In the Tutto bene! sitcom series we follow an almost-normal group of friends through their quotidian ups and downs living and working in Rome and on holidays in other parts of Italy. The off-beat humour, original soundtrack and idiosyncrasies of the characters in these short episodes are both entertaining and a great stimulus for learning, while importantly also serving to make the language memorable. By viewing an episode multiple times at intervals and particularly before starting a new lesson, students will recognise their progress with the language and gain a sense of accomplishment. The sitcom series is the foundation of the course, with a short episode of under four minutes’ duration introducing the new language and themes for each lesson in the book and on the app. All episodes of the series can be easily accessed in and out of the classroom: search for Lingopont Tutto bene! on YouTube or download the Lingopont Italian app. Lingopont Italian app: Tutto bene! The app delivers the Tutto bene! course in an interactive mobile format allowing maximum learning flexibility. It is both a vibrant alternative to the classroom for wholly independent learners as well as a rich resource for classroom students to further revise, consolidate and practise. The app offers an engaging and culturally-immersive learning experience with instant feedback for students to monitor their progress. With a transparent structure and supported step-by-step learning in all the skills, students have the choice of working progressively through the course or working selectively on a particular area. Each lesson comprises an episode of the Tutto bene! sitcom series followed by vocabulary building, speaking, listening, pronunciation and writing activities and culminates in a quiz. There is also a grammar reference for each lesson. Download the Lingopont Italian app from the app store.
