NEW GEAR UP





NEW GEAR UP is a book mainly addressed to technical and professional institutes related to Mechanics, Mechatronics and Power. Simple, clear and full of contents, this book is focused on micro-language learning, according to the CLIL criteria, through texts about technical topics related to the main subjects of the course. The technical texts are short and essential and they take into account the students prerequisites and their attention spans.

Moreover, there are a lot of readings and activities that arise from technical contents, provide general culture and civilization topics, possibly leading to discussions even about current events related to the area of interest and with fundamental contents. In addition to an introduction whom main goal is to evaluate the students beginning levels, the modular subdivision of the text is of inter-disciplinary nature: in fact, every module corresponds to a subject of the course. The technical text is divided into 7 modules; the last of them includes subjects related to mechatronics, otherwise mechanics, electronics and information technology, in consideration of the new technical and professional course that attributes value to mechatronics. Module 8 is very innovative: an integration of social and literary nature that proposes some topics related to Great Britain, United States and Ireland civilizations. The suggested topics are focused on the first industrial revolution period, victorian age until more recent times with references to the modern technoogy applied to music and cinema. The volume is completed by “Focus on looking for a job”, dedicated to the entry into employment.

The appendix includes a lot of grammar references, the vocabular of terms present in the text and a list of acronyms.

The text has been entirely conceived and developed following the CLIL criteria. Therefore, the didactic units allow, according to the ministerial provisions, to bring the majority of technical topics in English.

The project
An engaging and motivating proposal, designed by a team of international experts to easily meet the needs of teachers, kids and their families. The Jingle course is full of valuable didactic instruments that allow the creation of easily manageable, customised courses.
The spiral linguistic path allows a constant revision and enrichment of the lexical areas and structures with a gradual progression year after year.
A lot of attention has been dedicated to volumes 4 and 5 of both the revision and the preparation for student beginning junior high school. For this reason, pages have been created ad hoc to consolidate the vocabulary, the communication skills and the grammatical structure.

The scenario
The world of primary school has been in a phase of evolution for decades: changes go from technological innovations to more and more multi-ethnic classes, composed by children from different cultural backgrounds and competences. In this new scenario, teachers have a greater need for flexible educational tools to customize their teaching in order to meet the different needs and expertise of the students of increasingly diverse classrooms. The Jingle course is in line with the New National Guidelines regarding the learning process of the English language in primary school and allows students to reach level A1 goals of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The approach
The Characters, illustrations, contents and activities used on the course draw the attention of the students and are always in line with the age and competences acquired by the students year after year. All the support tools to textbooks and workbooks cleverly interact with each student along the path of study.
The approach is communicative and playful, full of a variety of engaging proposals. Whilst creating this course, a great deal of importance has been given to the Total Physical Response activities with a wide range of suggestions for games to play in couples, groups, songs, nursery rhymes and crafts that involve the students.
A lot of attention has been given to the needs of pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.

The methodology and didactic routine
Every volume contains 1 Welcome unit and 6 didactic units that follow a strict didactic routine, with a recurring scheme:

  • Presentation: phase where vocabulary and grammatical structures are introduced through dialogues as well as “listen and repeat” exercises.
  • Practice and extension: entry level students cover two out of four linguistic skills, in particular those related to listening and speaking (as recommended by the Ministerial Programme), to subsequently pass onto the following classes, where all the four skills are developed: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Also, starting from class three, the focus will be shifted on the pronunciation and phonetics of the English language.
  • Consolidation: phase where the students strengthen, customise and internalise structures and words presented in the unit, through playful activities and CLIL and, beginning from the third class, listening and reading of comic strip stories about the adventures of the main characters Jingle and Tammy.
  • To follow, in the fourth and fifth class, there are two pages entitled Go with Jingle! focused on grammar, introducing phonetics and phonology (in line with the National Indications).

After completing these steps of the course, every unit ends with the pages dedicated to the assessment of the average goals (Jingle all the way) and of the culture and citizenship, with a double page that presents the analysis of authentic materials, a reflection on similarities or differences concerning traditions, as well as proposing CLIL projects covering themes such as respect for the environment and civilized coexistence.

For the teacher and the class

  • Teacher’s Book full of suggestions to help the teachers create didactic paths according to the classes needs and competences.
  • Teacher’s Audio CD containing vocabulary, dialogues, songs, nursery rhymes and all the listening exercises of the Student’s Book and Workbook.
  • Dolls of Jingle and Tammy to animate presentations and review structures.
  • Magic wand to manage the different activities with a little bit of "magic".
  • Flashcard pack useful to present the vocabulary and play vocabulary building games.
  • Poster pack a series of posters for the classroom (size: 70×100).
  • DVDs for computers, tablets and IWB with animations, karaoke, written exams, glossary and interactive games, besides several detailed explanations dedicated to the English culture with themed videos and working papers that present customs, traditions and aspects of English children daily life, together with some spectacular shots of the city of London. Through 20 short films (4 for every year of study) the students, along with the likeable Mr Teddy Bear, will visit famous and characteristic places of the capital, English school and some homes.
  • Jingle Digital Tools a detailed guide to the digital resources, videos and supplementary multimedia contents.

CATERING@SCHOOL





This text is intended for Catering Institutes students that are attending their last year of study and who belong to "wine and food" and "dining and sale services" fields.

This book is in line with what has been stated by the Ministerial Directives of the new system where English language teaching contributes, (together with all the other subjects), to make students reach, (at the end of the five-year course of studies), a series of cultural and professional goals:

  • Application of the sectorial foreign language to be able to interact in different areas and contexts of study and work;
  • Ability to establish connections between local, national and international cultural traditions in a cultural perspective as the contemporary one, for the purposes of study and work mobility;
  • Ability to use the network and the IT instruments for school, research and in-depth analysis activities;
  • Awareness of the cultural and social differences of food service recipients in order to provide a service as customised as possible and suitable to a various clienteles needs;
  • Ability to develop relationships, communication, listening, cooperation and sense of responsibility skills whilst working.

Moreover, the reform of the vocational institutes in the wine and food and hospitality fields expects foreign language teaching to integrate with professional skills oriented to the client using communication and relationship techniques to optimize the quality of service and the colleagues' coordination, as well as to promote and make local, national and international traditions valuable (by identifying new industry trends).

Text structure

The volume is divided into four modules, one for each season. They follow the division of the academic year, beginning with autumn and ending with summer. Every module starts with a different season, covering, at the beginning, the related food, the method to prepare it and the recipes connected to it. This approach follows the current widespread trend in catering to promote the offer of seasonal products by offering appropriate menus, it also allows to easily organise the programme by dedicating two modules to each term that follow the season flow (first term: module 1 autumn and module 2 winter, second term: module 3 spring and module 4 summer).
The first module covers the aspects related to health and healthy nutrition through a discussion about meals and the different food styles.
The second module deals with new kitchen technologies and the current trends in the world of food service such as Slow Food and biological food.
The third module proposes an overview of eating habits of the main European and non-European countries, with the relative wine and food specialities.
The fourth module covers the alcoholic beverage, including wine and the main vine variety, liqueurs, spirits and beer.
At the end of every module there is a ‘Cooking the books’ section, which proposes students a 'taste' of literary extracts related to food and offers a cue and an incentive to read.
The theoretical parts of the text are shown clearly, simply and concisely, discussing the most current and most relevant aspects of the reality of food service, and are combined with a rich and various series of activities.
The new element that keeps the text up to date with new technologies is represented by links to different websites on which the student can find additional authentic materials useful to consolidate the skills acquired.
All of the material used for the realisation of the text is strictly authentic and up to date.
The volume comes together with a guide for the teacher containing the solutions of the exercices, the listening activities transcripts and proposals of written exams related to the programme.

Volumes organisation

Masters’ Voices covers the development of literature in three volumes:

  • volume 2: From Romanticism to the Victorian Age
  • volume 3: From the early 1900s onwards

Every volume is divided into Sections, or areas of interest (nine overall: four in the first volume, two in the second, and three in the third).

Every volume ends with a Glossary of specific terms related to literature and art followed by an Index of Authors.

Every section of the three anthological volumes contains accurate references to the online expansions.

Before Section 1, the first volume presents a short chapter of introduction to the analysis of texts, Hints for Reading (Poetry, Drama e Fiction), split into two parts, with the opportunity to get a deeper understanding and further exercises on the Web book:

  1. learning the basic criteria to carry out a correct analysis of the texts (depending on the genre);
  2. application of the theoretical basics.

Section 9, The Colonies, the last one, is entirely dedicated to the authors coming from the greater non-European nations of English influence.

ENGLISH TESTS





(running out of stock)


This booklet is addressed to high school students and it gives them the opportunity to to practise for and to pass the INVALSI test that will soon be introduced in the second year of the course.

Even though this exam has not been made official yet and the way it will be structured is not clear, we have thought to organise it so that the students' knowledge can be verified in all aspects: the comprehension of a text, the specific usage of the English language and grammar, but also considering the need to make a quick, simple and objective correction.

The material is structured as follows:

  1. 12 texts regarding different topics that high school students find interesting. Every text is followed by a glossary containing the least common terms and a multiple-choice exercise with four options intended to test students' comprehension.
  2. A second exercise with regard to English usage, focused on the ability to reflect on language and the use of vocabulary and specific structures, sometimes making a comparison with the Italian language.
  3. Finally, a grammar exercise is presented (always related to the text) that aims to verifying grammatical knowledge.

The texts have been composed choosing various topics, from those related to the programme to those specifically focused on people of this age group. They create an opportunity to expand students’ vocabulary, thanks to the glossary. Some words were not specifically included in the glossary as they were the object of exercises on the use of the language. In the multiple-choice exercises the four options are intentionally similar to each other. It is important that the student reads the text very carefully as the questions require only one correct answer.

Regarding the grammar, the exercices are drawn from structures present in the text and are intended to verify the acquisition of what has been covered in the two years of high school.

Beyond the mere exercise aimed at preparing students for the INVALSI test, this booklet is useful revision for different areas (such as comprehension, use of language and grammar) and tests that expand students’ vocabulary.

GET ON BOARD





Get on Board is a technical English text for polytechnic schools specialising in Transport and Logistics. The second edition has new colour illustrations and its contents have been updated, to meet the educational needs of the new course organisation.
The text has a wide selection of topics, divided into didactic units. Each didactic unit is split into paragraphs that addresses the main topic from different perspectives. From this wide collection, the teacher can choose a modular path suitable to the needs of his classes, and find ideas for inter-disciplinary paths and CLIL.
The development of the texts and the combination of the exercises proposed to develop the four skills include various activities - such as “listen and complete”, “answer the questions”, “diagram study” and “notetaking” . These are developed to guide the student through the acquisition of reading skills, vocabulary and linguistic structures that he needs in order to consult, read and understand English- written materials specific to his own field of study, such as manuals and instructions for the use of machines or understanding urgent messages received via radio or via a teletype board, and be able to produce an appropriate answer message.
For this second edition, the authors have completely revised the texts, to make them easier for students and to update the references to the IMO rules, which take into account any changes that have occurred since the previous edition.
Among the new features of the current edition there are “project work” activities proposed at the end of each didactic unit. They consist of various activities of guided research on the Internet, for which there are specific pages and the related "links". These activities offer the opportunity to work on computers in the lab and further examine, through the web, the contents learned.
The grammar section, consisting of explanations and exercises, clarifies the main practical difficulties that students encounter in the study of technical language.
The text is accompanied by a glossary with the translation of the most frequent technical terms.
Each didactic unit is followed by a "test" for the written part, that includes exercises for both production and identification of terms. The Teacher's book contains the solution to the exercises proposed in the didactic units, the tests and the test key of each didactic unit, and the solution to the grammar exercises.

ENGLISH TESTS





This small volume is addressed to junior high school students and gives them the opportunity to pass the INVALSI test expected in year three.

Exercising for this National Test is very important because only through practice the student can acquire self-confidence and confidence trust in his abilities.
This manual "trainer", offers the tools to understand how the tests are structured and how to execute them.

The material here presented is divided into two sections:

  • Part 1 consists of a text to read and in addition to a series of questions related to the text itself that verify its understanding.
  • Part 2 contains questions on grammar knowledge.

Every question has four possible answers and the student has to choose the one that, in his opinion, is the right one. The text has to be read carefully because the questions have only one right answer, but the choice options, if not understood thoroughly, are intentionally misleading and confusing.

To help the student, a small glossary has been added to each test. The topics presented are related to current events or to parts of the programme covered during the course of the year.

The vocabulary and grammatical structures are vast and refer to the whole English programme provided by the Ministry for the high school.

Grammar tests, conceived as supplementary training, are intended to help the student understand what are his "weak" points, and therefore, work to strengthen those grammatical topics that still need to be reviewed and studied.

From an operational point of view, the book advises the student to put a small cross on the answer he thinks fits best. If, after re-reading, the student thinks he was wrong, he can simply write "NO" next to the answer he would like to delete and put another small cross on the option he considers correct.

At the end, based on the correction the teacher provides, the student will be able to verify the outcome of the test and make the necessary reflections about the result obtained.

TOAST@SCHOOL





This volume is addressed to Professional Institutes students that are attending their last two years in the "dining and sale services" fields and it is divided into six modules which are split into units. After a first module that ( as in the text intended for the fellow students of the "wine and food" field), includes meals features and characteristics of different types of restaurants and menus, the second one brings the student in a restaurant hall where he is introduced to the vocabulary related to all equipment and utensils used in the service of food and beverages. Furthermore, it is accurately analysed the bar-room personnel tasks. On the other hand, the third module, focuses on the different types of coffee bars, its equipment and the types of drinks offered, including the most common cocktails. The fourth module is dedicated to the dialogues that take place in a restaurant between the staff and customers and. It highlights both the importance and pertinence of the language used, as well as the ability to easily handle all the possible situations a member of the staff could face. The fifth module addresses the importance of a close relationship between the restaurateur and consumer. The text ends with a rich overview of Italian cooking products.



These two texts are intended for Catering Institute students that are attending their third and fourth year of study. For the last year of the course, a publication of a text common to both the "wine and food" and "dining and sales services" fields is expected.

These books are in agreement with what has been stated in the Ministerial Directives of the new system whereby the teaching of English contributes, along with the other subjects, to make students reach, at the end of the five-year course of studies, a series of cultural and professional goals:

  • The application of the foreign language to be able to interact in different environments and contexts of study and work;
  • The ability to establish connections between local, national and international cultural traditions in a cultural perspective as the contemporary one, for the purposes of study and work mobility;
  • The ability to use the network and the computer tools for school activities, research and academic in-depth analysis;
  • The awareness of the cultural and social differences of food service recipients to be able to provide a service as customised as possible to suit the needs of a varied clientele.
  • The ability to express relationships, communication, listening, cooperation a and sense of responsibility whilst working.

Moreover, the reform of vocational services for food and wine and hospitality expects the foreign language to be taught so that it integrates with customer-oriented professional skills using techniques of communication to optimize the quality of service and the colleagues’ coordination, as well as to enhance and promote local, national and international traditions.

Text structure

These two volumes are divided into modules, which are split into units, that (starting from topics concerning specific sectors), develop and enrich themselves in an articulate way and in a multiracial context.
Within each module a 'Development' section has been added: a detailed explanation dedicated to some particularly interesting aspects of food service combined with activities that aim to attract students’ curiosity, and every module includes a section called 'Festivities' concerning feast days and traditions related and the 'Waiting for the next course' section that proposes extra activities to strengthen the topics that have been covered.

DUO





A complete book with holidays activities, to verify and examine in depth the work done during the year of study, about the main foreign languages.

A unique text, two subjects belonging to the linguistic field: the English language, usually first foreign language, combined with the second foreign language, chosen among French, Spanish and German.

DUO is a project for the holidays, in two volumes combined with a CD, it offers a revision of the two languages required for junior high school. It is structured in a calibrated way, as it considers the different amount of hours assigned to the first and to the second language. By consequence, a more considerable amount of pages is dedicated to English, in proportion to the greater amount of weekly teaching hours. In both languages the main goal is to direct first and second class students to a complete revision that allows to strengthen the knowledge assimilated during the year and prepare for a return to school, after the summer break. The whole project of matching two languages can be combined with any course because it is based on topics usually covered in the first and second class. Clear and linear work paths that allow the students to work autonomously and revise basic topics. In every path a wide range of exercices allows students to develop specific skills, while the consolidation of grammar structures is provided by concise grammar sheets.

For the teacher A file reserved to the teacher gives solutions to the activities and the listening exercises for each volume. Moreover, there is a final test that the teacher can use to check the homework done during the holidays or as an entry test.

HOLIDAY TIME!





It's summer time, it's holiday time, holidays that may represent a great chance to grow up if they are carefully planned and full of incentives.
"Well planned summer holidays" could be the HOLIDAY TIME! slogan, in two volumes equipped with CDs and conceived for the first two years of junior high school.
This text proposes a revision of topics that are usually covered in the English language manuals, so it can support any course in use.
Clear and structured working paths allow the student to work in an easy, immediate and at the same time careful way. Furthermore, the quick and linear system allows the teacher to choose instantly which topics have to be reviewed, according to the programme chosen and the school decisions made.
Thanks to these features, HOLIDAY TIME! can be considered a long range school instrument as it can be used not just during summer holidays, but also during lessons for tests and revision of basic structures.

HOLIDAY TIME! is divided into seven units that have to be done in the same number of holiday weeks and is split into recurring sections, comprised of various and stimulating activities.
Every unit wants to activate a methodical revision of vocabulary, grammar structures and communication functions. The lexicon acquisition is enhanced by listening exercises, whilst the consolidation of grammar structures is supported by efficient and short grammar sheets, which follow the same order as the exercises used in junior high school. The game activities also aim to develop specific linguistic skills.
Students can work autonomously, completing the activities directly in the text, without needing extra exercise books or teaching aids. For this purpose, all the exercises are preceded by simple and direct instructions as well as clear examples that make their execution easier.
Moreover, the text comes with a glossary where there are translations of the most frequent words, to facilitate comprehension and vocabulary consolidation, without the need to look for help somewhere else.
A final course focuses students’ attention on reading, with an engaging extract illustrated with comics and images. Visual impact has got an important role in the learning processes today and can arouse the curiosity and the motivation to read, with the aim of improving and at the same time extending the skills to express oneself in a different language.
Reading is followed by tests that verify the comprehension of the text, the enrichment and consolidation of the linguistic baggage, while the complete autonomy of the course allows the teacher to choose, according to the learning needs of every student and of every class.

A teacher file comes with every volume and gives the solutions to the exercises and the listening activities transcripts.

TASTE@SCHOOL





This volume is addressed to Professional Institute students that are attending their last two years in the "wine and food" field and it is divided into six modules, which in turn are split into units. The topics covered since the first module include meals and classification of restaurants and menus offered by restaurateurs. The second module brings the student to a professional kitchen to study its equipment, its tools and the environment management. Cooking methods and gastronomic preparations which form the basis of Italian cooking are the third module's topics and provide a clear continuation to the fourth, where there is a closer look at the food we eat and where we can find out its features and virtues. The fifth module examines different forms of specialised food service, as the ones in schools, hospitals or the one provided by airline companies, giving many examples of original menus. The last module offers a wide and detailed overview of the regional Italian cooking( as provided for in the ministerial directive), and presents the manifold treasure of our cooking in a captivating and pleasant way through a journey that doesn't leave out any Italian region.



This text is intended for Catering Institute students that are attending their third and fourth year of study. For the last year a publication of a text common to the "wine and food" and "dining and sale services" fields is expected.

These books are in agreement with what has been stated in the Ministerial Directives of the new system where the English language teaching contributes, together with all the other subjects, to make students reach, at the end of the five-year course of studies, a series of cultural and professional goals:

  • Use of the sectorial foreign language to be able to interact in different areas and contexts of study and work;
  • Chance to make connections between local, national and international cultural traditions in a cultural perspective, for the purposes of study and work mobility;
  • Ability to use the network and the IT instruments for school, research and in-depth analysis activities;
  • Awareness of the cultural and social differences of food service recipients to be able to provide a service as customised as possible to suit various clientele needs;
  • Ability to express relationships, communication, listening, cooperation and a sense of responsibility while working.
