Progetto Italiano Junior
is a course designed for students pre–adolescents and adolescents
(11-17 years) as beginners or false beginners. It is not merely a copy of Nuovo Progetto Italiano
, but it is based on its structure. Each unit contains a comic-story that develops the topic of the unit and tells the story of five young players who
accompany the students in the three volumes of this language course. Progetto Italiano Junior
addresses issues and themes that are familiar to students by exposing them to everyday language and sociocultural Italian presented through exciting stories in comics. The characters are 5 Italian children, with whom students can identify because they have the same interests, face the same problems, have their own issues and experiences—all seen with realism and the necessary dose of humor.
