Italian 232 focuses on advanced practice of all grammar structures learned in 231 and introduces the subjunctive tense and other complex grammar structures in Italian. Additionally, there is a strong cultural component to the course as we learn about Italian history, society, and culture. The course furthers development of all the 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.
