ITAL 3198 - Advanced Beginning Italian      

Designed for students with some previous study of Italian or another Romance language, this course builds on and rapidly expands control of basic grammatical structures and vocabulary. Students consolidate their ability to negotiate basic survival situations in the target-language culture, and prepare themselves for continued study of the language. New language functions will be presented in meaningful activities that emphasize all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Cultural knowledge that will build a deeper understanding of Italy is a crucial component of the course content.

Students are also required to participate in the Diction & Pronunciation workshop, the culture workshop and to attend the afternoon conversation course.
