ITAL 205 - Intermediate Italian I

Semester Offered: Fall

Intermediate language course designed to reinforce and build upon the communication and cultural competencies acquired at the introductory level. Among the goals of this course are: improving reading comprehension, writing, and conversational skills; developing critical thinking in Italian; and deepening students’ understanding of Italian culture. A variety of texts from various genres, both written and audiovisual, provide the context for activities aimed at facilitating grammar review and expansion, vocabulary development, and writing practice. Short stories, essays, poems, newspaper articles, websites, pop songs, videos, and a feature film provide material for analysis and discussion. Students are invited to work in collaborative and communal ways, and to understand a different language and culture by rethinking their own. Simona Bondavalli.
