Dianne Hales - La Bella Lingua

For Students and Teachers


Some of the most gratifying responses to La Bella Lingua have come from individuals studying Italian at every level and in every way possible and from teachers who use my book and my blog in their classrooms. I hope to expand this part of my website to present more educational materials and to include comments, suggestions, and ideas from Italian instructors and pupils.

Please let me know what you'd like to see in this space. Just email me at dianne@diannehales.com.

If you teach Italian, you can get a review/desk copy of the new paperback of La Bella Lingua for $3 from the Academic Resources Department at Random House. Teachers can also win a signed free copy of La Bella Lingua at the Make Me Required Reading website.
