A pack of illustrated cards with fifty simple words in Italian. Each card shows an everyday object with accompanying word on one side and just the word on its own on the other to aid revision. Illustrated with Jo Litchfield’s handmade models. The cards can be used to play games, for self-testing, or simply propped up around the house or classroom as useful reminders.

I communicate in Italian to my two young boys and also teach it to other young learners and beginner level adults. I am therefore always on the lookout for new and exciting fun resources, not an easy task with the Italian language. These cards are great fun to use, stimulating for young children, colourful and brilliant for building up knowledge of vocabulary. I recommend them, go use them, ora, subito, buon divertimento e ciao!
