ITAL 111
Fall 2009
Section: 01   02  

This course is the first half of a two-semester intermediate sequence and it seeks to increase students' confidence and ability to read, write, speak, and understand the language, as it builds on previously learned grammatical structures and introduces more complex ones. Authentic artifacts such as literary excerpts, films, newspaper articles, and songs constitute the starting points (spunti) of this course. Each spunto helps students develop an understanding of culture and society in contemporary Italy, offers opportunities to explore similarities and differences between the students' native culture and Italian culture and society, and provides varied activities for the improvement of linguistic competence. Class is conducted entirely in Italian.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Speaking
This course offers students a variety of opportunities to develop their

differences between their native culture and the Italian world.
