This eight-week course is designed for students who have no previous Italian instruction. Students will develop language proficiency on a basic level, but the emphasis is on the culture and history of Italy, its different regions, cuisine and traditions. All language skills will be practiced: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course does not overlap with Italian 1. Students should be available for oral practices at least once a week.
Students will be required to practice speaking and listening skills weekly in real time over the Internet with the instructor. Students should be available for 45 minutes for oral practices scheduled between 7:30-9:00 PM EST at least once a week.
Special accommodations will be made for Army students in both courses.
Note: This course incorporates web conferencing using Blackboard Collaborate. Students taking this course must have access to a computer that meets the minimum technological requirements which are described in the information for setting up Blackboard Collaborate. Before enrolling, students should know how to successfully use or have tested the web conferencing service on their computer. Students are encouraged to participate in ESC’s Blackboard Collaborate Student Training
