This is an entry level Italian language course designed for students who have never studied the language before. It is a more intensive language course offering students the opportunity to focus a greater amount of time on the acquisition of the Italian language. After completing this course, students will be able to communicate in everyday situations such as introducing themselves, shopping for food or clothing, asking for directions, and making reservations, a writing and reading small basic texts in Italian. This focus on practical topics will give students the tools to interact immediately in their new environment.  As students develop their language skills, new and more complex topics of conversation are introduced.  Emphasis is given to the introduction of Italian culture (politics, history, art, traditions, social customs, literature, cinema, daily life, etc.) Many conversation topics are taken from local newspapers, television and Italian magazines. The course program is presented together with the grammar book chapters. At the end of each week there will be one brief quiz. The course goal is a solid grammatical understanding of the Italian language, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
