“I’ll tell you a story,
because deep down I know you’re curious…
Even though the thoughts of whitemen
are difficult to read…
Because they’re hidden like those of ants.”
Learn Italian with comics
Comics are extremely a rich and popular reading, for long time the most greatly enjoyed by young people. Although they are often shunned by official, traditionalist culture, the authors and characters of the comics are an integral part of Italian culture.
However, people who study Italian are also interested in Italy’s culture as well, so we wanted to fill this void by introducing a new narrative adventure to our range of educational programs.
This is because, in our opinion, Hugo Pratt with ‘Corto Maltese’, Tiziano Sclavi with ‘Dylan Dog’, and Tiziano Berardi with ‘Julia’ are some of the most widely read Italian authors of the 1900s.
We offer a number of stories about these legendary comic characters – adapting them where necessary – all supported by a broad, structured didactical apparatus . The language of comics and graphic novels is specialist and intuitive. And with the high quality, colour, drawings and script writings, the comic format also provides a fascinating and engaging source of learning for intermediate students. Smack has created the LEARN ITALIAN WITH COMICS, a 10-volume study course, published and distributed by
