ITAL 112

This course is the second half of a two-semester intermediate sequence and a gateway to more advanced courses. Students acquire more complex language structures and refine those they already know. Authentic artifacts such as literary excerpts, films, newspaper articles and short stories constitute the starting points (spunti) of this course. Each spunto helps the student develop an understanding of the history, society and culture of contemporary Italy, offers opportunities to explore similarities and differences between the student's native culture and Italian culture and society, and provides varied activities for the improvement of linguistic competence. By the end of the intermediate sequence, students can expect to express themselves articulately and feel comfortable in an Italian setting, both linguistically and culturally. Class is conducted entirely in Italian.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Speaking
This course offers students a variety of opportunities to develop their
ability to speak and understand Italian, while exploring similarities and
differences between their native culture and the Italian world.
