You have covered a lot of grammar over the years, recently or a long time ago, but you feel that it is escaping you because you never get to practice in a structured environment. This class might be for you.
In this level, you are able to understand the main ideas of a text, to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party, and to explain a viewpoint. You are conversational… but can use guidance to brush up on various aspects of grammar.
We will use different mediums to engage everyone’s conversational skills. The weekly meetings will touch upon various aspects of everyday life and culture in Italy. You will read short articles, view video clips, discuss movie scenes and stories, listen to songs, or observe paintings while learning and reviewing important language structures in a fun way. You will use the Italian language and Italian only!
