CONVERSATIONAL ITALIAN
We’re pleased and proud of the popularity of the extended schedule of this popular and practical Italian language course. Students will find the conversational approach of each session both practical and easy to follow. Intensive drill in the patterns and idioms of daily speech, supported by structure grammar instruction, will add to your fluency in the spoken language. Movies shown in class will provide additional exposure to the Italian conversations. The class finale, dinner at a local Italian restaurant, will give you a chance to practice your Italian in real time while learning more about the Italian culture. Buon appetito!
