Description

This course is an introduction to the Italian language and culture. It is designed for students with an active competence in Spanish who wish to acquire a more profound understanding of the Italian culture and society at an accelerated pace, through listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities in Italian. Due to the linguistic similarities between Spanish and Italian, students will quickly master the four skills, gain the ability to understand conversational Italian, and communicate effectively in everyday practical situations. At the same time, they will get acquainted with the different topics from the Italian culture.

Grading is based on class attendance and participation, tests, short essays and translations, Internet research for a presentation, and a final speaking exam. This class is conducted in Italian.

Class Format:

This class is conducted in Italian.

During certain periods of the term, we will engage in large discussions about the course content in an in-person format; during other periods of the term, we will engage in activities where students collaborate in small-group activities via breakout sessions in Zoom.
