Class Details

This course is designed for beginners who already have some basic knowledge of Italian. Its goal is to give students the opportunity to review and expand their oral/aural and reading/writing proficiency in Italian. During the semester, you will continue to learn grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation while improving your aural-oral skills, reading, and writing in Italian. The instructor will present you with a wide range of communication patterns and real-life situations to achieve these goals. At the end of the semester, you will be able to use Italian to talk about yourself, your life, describe your town and history, dreams and interests, and express your opinion on complex topics. You will also be able to talk in Italian about the present, past, and future events and express doubts and hopes. You will understand more complex conversations and clips from mainstream Italian films and write more extended compositions. Conducted entirely in Italian.
