Each chapter is divided into two sections. 1. In English: grammar is explained as it relates to English, anticipating concepts necessary for Italian. 2. In Italian: grammar is explained as it relates to Italian, with examples and explanations of the rules applied. Points out similarities, differences, and alerts students to pitfalls. Available online: 1. Review booklet with Answer key 2. Correlation to Oggi in Italia indicating the pages to be read in preparation for each lesson. This self-study guide is part of the O&H Study Guide series for students of foreign languages. Experience has shown that students using the O&H Italian Study Guide improve their performance in Italian grammar thanks to a better understanding of English grammar. Teachers can devote more class time to developing communicative skills.
