ITAL3151

Beginning Italian

This course is designed to introduce students to the grammatical structures and vocabulary necessary to express personal meaning on basic topics (e.g. family, daily routines, and leisure time) and negotiate basic survival situations (making travel arrangements, ordering meals, and making purchases, etc.). Language topics and functions are integrated into activities that emphasize all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing), with special attention given to speaking and listening. Cultural knowledge that will build a deeper understanding of Italy is a crucial component of the course content. This course meets three hours a day.

*Students are also encouraged to participate in all the workshops offered in the evening.

**Students are also required to participate in the Diction & Pronunciation course.
