ITAL 1210 - Elementary Italian

Fall. 4 credits.

Intended for beginners or students placed by examination.

F. Cervesi (course coordinator) and staff.

ITAL 1210 and ITAL 1220  are fast-paced, introductory-level courses designed for students with no previous knowledge of Italian (1210), and those with some basic knowledge of the language (ITAL 1220 ). Students will be guided in developing four language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) in the context of everyday topics (school, housing, travel, personal preferences, simple exchanges about past, future and possible events, etc.). They will also be introduced to culturally acceptable modes of oral and written communication in Italian, some fundamentals of Italian history, and select current social and political issues.
