Vivere l'italiano Textbooks
We recommend a small bilingual pocket dictionary (Italian to/from your mother tongue), plus the following text books:
Beginner 1 Material is supplied as part of your course, so there is no need to buy a textbook.
However, if you want to buy Nuovo Espresso 1 below it will cover B1 and subsequent levels.
Beginner 2&3
Nuovo Espresso 1 (Blue/white cover)
(ISBN: 9788861823181)

Important: There is an English version "New Italian Espresso" and an Italian version "Nuovo Italian Espresso". They both look similar, but you should buy the ITALIAN version. Please use the ISBN number above.

You can get Nuovo Espresso with or without an accompanying DVD. The DVD version is more expensive, but you do not need to purchse this. The non-DVD version is fine.
