Continuing Studies

Summary

Practice and refine your conversational Italian on a variety of everyday and cultural topics while also improving your language skills through listening practice, reading short passages, and writing activities. This Italian language class will focus on using past tense and complex grammatical structures. Textbook required. Prerequisite: Italian 2 or equivalent.

Note: You will not be able to view the course on your Canvas Dashboard or access the materials until the course start date.

Course format

Instructional videos and interactive online materials in the Canvas course platform introduce new grammar and vocabulary and teach pronunciation, listening and reading skills. Participants should budget 3–4 hours a week to work through the online asynchronous materials in preparation for the live online conversation groups. Participants practice speaking live with the instructor in small groups of 3–6 students in 30-minute weekly sessions. Participants should be available for the entire one-hour time slot. Online course materials are available one week before the first live conversation class and remain accessible for one month after the course ends.
