Primary Instructor:


Italian 102 continues the presentation of the essentials of the Italian language and attempts to broaden the students’ knowledge of Italian life and culture. It is task-and content-based and incorporates grammar in a functional use of language through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Language use is encouraged through a variety of communicative activities, and video-responses. Readings and cultural notes introduce students to contemporary Italian life and culture. Their cultural awareness and listening skills are further developed through audio-visual materials such as films, and also includes authentic readings in Italian (short articles from newspapers and magazines).

Grading is based on regular attendance, class participation, regular and timely completion of homework assignments, tests, a final speaking test, and a final written examination.

For information about the sequence of Italian language courses, please see the RLL Course Progress Chart.
