Class Experience

In this course, students will learn to understand and communicate in Italian in a range of everyday situations.
Students will develop basic skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Italian, learn vocabulary, expressions, and how to talk about everyday and familiar topics. During the course, students will also learn about Italian culture and develop the study skills needed to learn a language.

Session I summary: 
Week 1: Introduction to the Italian Language. Discuss what makes Italian an easy language to learn and how we can speed up our learning.  We will create our Italian workbook and learn how to greet others and present ourselves.
We will learn the letters of the alphabet in Italian, as well as some practical vocabulary words.

Week 2: Introduction to the vowels. Introduction to composite and complex sounds (gli, sce-sci, sche-schi) and how to read them within a word.  Review what we have already learned. 

Week 3: Introduction to "Le parole gentili": how to use words of politeness. Review what we have already learned.

Week 4: The Days of the Week. Vocabulary regarding the weather. Introduction to small sentences. Review what we have already learned. 

Week 5: How to write the date. The months of the year.  Review what we have already learned. 

Week 6:   The numbers 1 -20. Counting by 10's up to 100. The parts of the body. Learn the song "head and shoulders" in Italian.

I don't assign homework, but I encourage doing something throughout the week, such as picking out an everyday object and then learning its name in Italian or choosing a favorite recipe we can translate while practicing vocabulary during the lesson.
I encourage students to stay organized with the use of notebooks and a folder to keep worksheets organized.
I do informal assessments as we go to evaluate learning progress.
40 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
