ITAL 011 - Intensive Basic Italian
This intensive course meets for a full hour five days a week and provides a first approach to the Italian 
language for absolute beginners. Attention is devoted to the four skills of speaking, understanding, 
reading, and writing with a progression from greater emphasis on listening and speaking to a balance of 
all skills as the semester progresses.  Aspects of Italian history, culture, and contemporary life are also introduced through readings, listening materials, videos and films and through the use of language 
technologies (like Blackboard and other web tools). The general objectives are to provide students with 
basic tools for oral and written communication in Italian, but also to offer them the opportunity to learn 
about Italian culture and life and to reflect about intercultural differences and similarities.
