"Basis Deutsch" is a learning programme for Italian Learners created for working in traditional classrooms but also for interactive Board and independent learning. It consists of a 1) learner book divided in blocks and lessons with different kinds of texts (they introduce words, shrunks and - often by inductive exercizes - grammar, phonological/orthographic, pragmatical rules) and competence training exercizes and test simulation, 2) an exercize book (same division as learner book) with exercizes (rich typology), tests and a summary in Italian of pragmatical, grammatical and phonological/orthographic rules, 3) two CD-Roms, 4) interactive on-line exercizes and 5) separate "Lehrerhandbuch" as a manual that explain the single steps of each lesson (didactic, civilization) and provides answer keys. So learners get the competence to manage situations in contact (direct contact or by other mediums like phone or internet) with German speaking people (in Germany, Italy etc.). The 1st volume brings the students up to A1 level and higher, the 2nd one to A2 Level and higher, the 3rd one to B1, nearly B2. It provides linguistic competences (lexical, grammatical, phonological, orthographic, orthoepic, semantic ones), sociolinguistic competences (thematic fields, general notions, registers), pragmatical competences (communicative functions, strategies, different text types) based on global and detailled descriptors (as defined by CEFL and adapted by tests developed by Goethe-Institut) for oral and written reception, production, interaction and mediation. The programme is contrastive in method (German-Italian-English), it aims of creating independent learners accomodating all styles od learning (cognitive, audio-visive, practical-manual learning).
