This course will focus on spoken and written Italian. Cultural aspects of Italy’s past and contemporary history will be the subjects of oral discussion and written composition. Topics such as fine arts, theatre, cinema, music, culinary history, and fashion will be the basis for language practice. The goal of the course is to provide students with conversational and writing skills. Attention will be given to finer points of grammar, particularly Italian morphology and syntax. Students will engage in small group work and individual reporting. The material for the course will be drawn from both specialized workbooks and news/articles from authentic Italian newspapers and websites. Some class time will be devoted to impromptu discussions allowing students to test their thinking and communication skills.
