Intermediate Italian

Wednesday, 7:30-9:00pm (see contents below)

This course is designed for those who already have a fair knowledge of the basic Italian grammar. The goal of this course is to improve overall comprehension, vocabulary usage, and conversation skills. Students will continue their study of Italian grammar and will apply it to everyday conversation. The ability of communicating will be mostly developed through dialogues using main tenses of verbs. Most of the lessons aim to develop confidence in understanding and replying with simple grammar structure. In this course only Italian is spoken by the teacher and among students. A brief telephone conversation is recommended for those who are not sure if their language skill is appropriate for this course.

This course will start on June 10, 2020
