Introduzione
Questo testo esce nel momento cruciale di trasformazione dei CTP in CPIA a seguito del DPR
n. 263 del 29 ottobre 2012. Nel nuovo assetto didattico-organizzativo loferta formativa verr
strutturata per livelli: in particolare il percorso di 1 livello sar inalizzato al conseguimento
del titolo di studio conclusivo del primo ciclo di istruzione e - a seguire - al raggiungimento
della certiicazione attestante lacquisizione delle competenze di base connesse allobbligo di
istruzione, relativamente agli insegnamenti comuni a tutti gli indirizzi degli istituti professionali e tecnici. In questo mutato scenario, la prova di lingua straniera entra a far parte delle
prove scritte obbligatorie dellEsame di Stato di 1 livello.
Il testo propone un percorso intensivo per condurre studenti true beginners ino al livello A2
del Common European Framework, operando una selezione dei contenuti grammaticali e delle
funzioni linguistiche sulla base dei contesti comunicativi pi rilevanti per gli studenti adulti.
La scelta degli argomenti, dei personaggi, del materiale semiautentico stata efettuata appositamente per gli studenti dei CTP: persone adulte, in maggioranza straniere, che rientrano nel
percorso di istruzione con un grande investimento personale e con il proprio bagaglio culturale che lapprendimento della lingua inglese potr fornire occasione per condividere.
Il percorso articolato in due moduli, A1 e A2, organizzati ciascuno tematicamente in 5 unit
didattiche e complessivamente in 18 Lessons, che il docente potr utilizzare in maniera lessibile, sulla base della competenza dimostrata in ingresso dagli studenti. Agli studenti gi in
possesso di competenze rapportabili al livello A2, il secondo modulo del testo ofre comunque materiale suiciente per il consolidamento e per avviare un percorso individualizzato di
potenziamento.
Ogni Lesson si apre con un dialogo che propone il contenuto linguistico in maniera chiara
e in un contesto appropriato e rilevante. Esercizi di comprensione orale e scritta, attivit di
pair work e di role playing permettono di sviluppare tutte e quattro le abilit, non trascurando
quella di reading comprehension abbinata sia a domande Vero/Falso che a domande aperte, in
previsione della prova desame. Ogni Lesson comprende una sezione che riassume con un linguaggio accessibile il contenuto grammaticale e un elenco del nuovo lessico pi signiicativo.
Lappendice del testo ofre ulteriore materiale per attivit comunicative adatte a consolidare ed
utilizzare in maniera realistica la lingua appresa.
Sul web il docente trover il Teachers book con le indicazioni metodologiche, la soluzione degli
esercizi, le tracce audio e i testi degli ascolti. Sono forniti anche entry tests e test sommativi.
Sempre sul web sono disponibili esercizi mirati in particolare al recupero e al raggiungimento
degli obiettivi minimi.

Domande che iniziano con Wh- e H-

s traduce di nel signiicato di possesso.


s segue il nome del possessore. Rispetto
allItaliano la posizione dei nomi invertita:
prima quello del possessore e poi quello della
cosa posseduta.

What?
Che cosa? Quale?
Es. Whats your name/job/telephone number/
address?
What is it?

Es. Lautomobile nuova di Maria.


Marias new car.
Ali il cugino di Shabir.
Ali is Shabirs cousin.
Se la cosa posseduta in comune da pi persone,
s segue solo lultimo possessore:
Es. I igli di Aziz e Deba. Aziz and Debas
children.
Se il nome dei possessori plurale, occorre solo
lapostrofo .
Es. My parents old car.

Plurale dei sostantivi (2a parte)


Nella lesson 2 abbiamo visto che il plurale dei
nomi si forma aggiungendo una s al nome
singolare. Le principali eccezioni a questa regola
sono:
men (uomini)
a man (un uomo)
women (donne)
a woman (una donna)
people (gente, persone)
a person (una persona)
children (bambini, igli)
a child (un bambino)

Chi?
Who?
Es. Whos that person?
How is/are Come sta/stai/stanno?
Es. How are you?
How old? Quanti anni? A differenza
dellItaliano, per
Es. How old are you?
chiedere let
si usa il verbo
essere e non il
Where... from?
p. 18
verbo avere.

This / That
This ( questo/questa) e that ( quello/quella)
hanno solo signiicato singolare.
Nella lingua di tutti i giorni, that viene usato
spesso al posto di it.
Es. Thats a good idea! = Its a good idea!
