IT 101 - Italian Language in Context: Novice Abroad I

This course presents the basic structures of the Italian Language through a communicative and direct approach. The student will become familiar with Italian language and culture through reading, listening and writing activities concerning different aspects of the Italian life. Study abroad enhances the chances of communicative competences that are most difficult to foster in a mere classroom setting. As such, students will be exposed to different communicative situations and contexts, so that they will naturally gain confidence outside of class and become more willing to use the language from the very beginning. Speaking and listening activities will be an important part of each class period: particular emphasis will be put on idiomatic and common expressions. By the end of the course students will realize they are better assimilated into everyday Italian life and culture, as they can now meet their everyday needs.

It is a demanding, highly participatory course that rewards daily efforts by students. The pace is quick and lively; those who commit seriously to this adventure will be surprised with the outcomes of their efforts.
