My daughter, aged 14, is learning Italian. I'm thinking about subscribing to some Italian magazine for teenage girls. Which one would you recommend?
Based on the size of their sales, I have three weekly magazines to suggest:
Topolino (http://topolino.it/) is the most popular Italian magazine for the youth. Besides the Disney cartoons, it features articles of general interest for children and teenagers. Despite the fact that the publisher is a US based corporation, the content is originally developed and tailored specifically for Italian young readers. It might be easier to read for a beginner.
Il Giornalino (http://ilgiornalino.g-web.it/) is the magazine for the youth published by Edizioni Paoline (known in the US as the "Pauline Books and Media"). It is targeted for an audience slightly older than Topolino.
- "Cioè" (http://www.cioe.it/) - published by Panini. Unlike the previous two, this is a publication specifically for teenage girls, with a "gossip" magazine format.
I wanted to give you more than one choice since only you, the parent, can evaluate how proficient is your daughter with the Italian language and what type of content you think is appropriate for her.
