ITL 102: ELEMENTARY ITALIAN II

Italian 102 is a continuation of Italian 101 and thus continues the study of sounds, structure and grammatical concepts but with a growing emphasis on conversational ability. It is, ideally, the second step of a sequence, which would include Italian 101, 102, 201 and 202. An attempt is made to familiarize students with the three language skills: listening comprehension, speaking and writing. An hour a week of independent lab work, which involves listening to tapes, which accompany each lesson, is a requirement of the course and will help the student in the comprehension and speaking skills. Italian 102 would be appropriate for someone who has successfully completed Italian 101 or a student with two years of high school Italian. Native speakers should contact the Department to determine their level and what courses they may take for credit. Note: Students must register for both a lecture and lab.
