PRIMA (Pedagogical Repository of Italian Media Activities) is a language learning tool meant to supplement other grammar books and resources designed for Italian language learning. The activities on this site promote learning through engagement with authentic Italian media and span all levels from beginner to advanced. The activities range in focus from grammatical topics, reading and listening comprehension, vocabulary, and culture. The media files and accompanying worksheets can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection, and may be downloaded and modified according to their intended use. There are accompanying answer keys, captions, and transcripts designed to cater to the specific needs of each user.
By using activities from our repository, instructors are helping students to fill in the gaps where the curriculum often falls short in terms of popular culture and other contemporary subjects. Through PRIMA, students are exposed to Italians of color, queer Italians, and those belonging to non-traditional or minority communities, giving students a broader and more accurate perspective of contemporary Italy that reflects the country’s vibrancy and celebrates the achievements of ALL Italians.
