Excerpt from Graded Lessons in English for Italians: An Aid in Americanization Metodo Teorico Practico della Lingua Inglese. With slight modification the contents of this first edition now forms the second and third parts. The first part has been added to simplify the Method in such a way that even those who are illiterate may use it as a primer. In the word list of the first part of the book it has been deemed necessary to add the transliteration of every word used to enable the learner to read the lesson when he is not with the teacher. The pronunciation of the English language is so difficult that one is liable to forget how to pronounce certain words even after he has read them a few times under the direction of the teacher. Though the exact transliteration of any language can never be properly rendered, yet it helps the pupil in the task of pronouncing difficult words. The second part of the book contains twenty conversations on familiar and useful topics. They tend to familiarize the pupil with easy and common every day expressions which he needs in his daily life. Through these conversations the learner will be able to read English fairly well and know a large number of words before he begins to study the rules of grammar, which, however easy and comprehensible they may be, will always be a heavy burden for the beginner to bear.

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, working-class Americans had eating habits that were distinctly shaped by jobs, families, neighborhoods, and the tools, utilities, and size of their kitchens—along with their cultural heritage. How the Other Half Ate is a deep exploration by historian and lecturer Katherine Turner that delivers an unprecedented and thoroughly researched study of the changing food landscape in American working-class families from industrialization through the 1950s. Relevant to readers across a range of disciplines—history, economics, sociology, urban studies, women’s studies, and food studies—this work fills an important gap in historical literature by illustrating how families experienced food and cooking during the so-called age of abundance. Turner delivers an engaging portrait that shows how America’s working class, in a multitude of ways, has shaped the foods we eat today.

This collection of essays examines English language learning in formal education contexts from pre-school to lower secondary level. Focused on an in-service teacher education project that aimed to enhance the teaching of English in a group of schools, it takes into account the perspectives of multiple stakeholders – heads of school, teachers, parents and children. Its novelty lies in the variety of themes it covers, such as the account of a vertical implementation of a Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) project at three school levels, teachers’ attitudes to using picturebooks in L2 settings, cultural differences in the presentation of content in textbooks, and the role of the native language assistant. “English for Young Learners” makes a valid contribution to research on a matter of crucial importance in Italian education in the 21st century, the improvement of the teaching and learning of English. It will be of interest to student teachers, educators, practitioners and researchers.

Die amerikanische Bestsellerautorin Jhumpa Lahiri («Das Tiefland», «Einmal im Leben») hat ein gewagtes Experiment unternommen. Als Sprecherin zweier Sprachen, Englisch und Bengalisch, machte sie sich auf, eine dritte so gut zu lernen, dass sie sie nicht nur fließend sprechen, sondern sogar darin schreiben konnte: das Italienische. Dies ist die Geschichte eines kulturellen und linguistischen Abenteuers. Mit zwei Sprachen wuchs Jhumpa Lahiri auf: In der Familie wurde Bengalisch gesprochen, Lesen und Schreiben lernte sie auf Englisch in den USA. In beiden Sprachen fühlte sie sich nie ganz beheimatet. Doch dann, während einer Florenzreise 1994 – eine jähe, wilde Affäre mit dem Italienischen, einer Sprache, die neue Freiheit, Abenteuer und Unabhängigkeit verhieß. Doch gleich wurden die jungen Liebenden wieder getrennt: Lahiri kehrte zurück nach New York, und jahrelang hielten nur ein kleines Lexikon in ihrer Handtasche sowie der knappen Lebenszeit abgerungene Privatstunden bei wechselnden Lehrerinnen die Flamme am Brennen. Bis sie 2013 – ihr Leben als freie Schriftstellerin machte es möglich – Hals über Kopf mit der gesamten Familie nach Rom zog. Und nun wurde aus Leidenschaft Lebensernst ... Dies ist ein sehr persönliches Buch, die präzise Auseinandersetzung einer Schriftstellerin mit einer Fremdsprache, die langsam zur eigenen Sprache wird, und mit einem Land, das ihre neue Heimat werden soll. Italien! Rom! Die Geschichte! Die Lebensart! Zugleich berührt es große Fragen: Heimat, Identität, was ist das überhaupt, woraus entsteht es? Lahiri tauchte so tief in die Fremdheit der neuen Sprache und Kultur ein, bis sie in der Lage war, ihr erstes Buch auf Italienisch zu schreiben. Hier ist es – im tiefsten Sinne des Wortes eine Liebesgeschichte.
