Description

Italian 231 focuses on reviewing basic grammar structures done in the first year of Italian while at the same time it delves deeper into nuances of Italian grammar. Additionally, there is a strong cultural component to the course as we learn about Italian history, society, and culture. The course furthers the development of all four language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking). Authentic readings from a variety of Italian texts are used to deepen reading skills while writing skills are practiced through short essays. Communicative skills are emphasized through continuous class discussions (in pairs, small, and large groups), oral practice, and a poster presentation. Audio-visual materials are incorporated to further develop students’ listening and comprehension skills. Grading is based on active class community involvement in class, homework, brief exams based on specific skills, a poster presentation, assessments in the four skills, and a final exam.

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