Last year, I was involved in working on a new grammar book for the Italian secondary school market and a copy arrived in the post this week.
As well as grammar reference and practice, it includes a substantial vocabulary practice section at the back, grouped around familar themes and with activities aimed at A1, A2, B1 and B2 students. I helped to compile the initial outline and wordlists for the vocabulary section as well as writing a chunk of the units.
Flicking through the finished book, it’s nice to see the material in its final design. I’m also reminded of some of the bits I was particularly proud of, including language for talking about disability, chronic health conditions and mental health issues. Oh yes, and I snuck in a text about a forensic scientist 😉
