Weekly, 45 minute class over conversation skills, grammar, verb conjugations, dialogues, songs, vocabulary, and more for those who are above beginner level but not fluent.

Class experience

The goal of this club is to help students get excited and feel confident in speaking some Italian through learning some key grammar, vocabulary, verb skills, conversation skills, and over all comprehension in order to get them interested in foreign languages for college or feeling more confident in upper Italian for those learning the language for fun, traveling to Italy, living in Italy, or understanding Italian relatives better.
I believe that taking foreign language classes opens the doors to many opportunities. In high school, I took Spanish, and at university, I learned up to the Intermediate level in Italian. I now give students the opportunity to learn the Italian language by making it fun and engaging through my teaching style, print-offs, and Quizlets games. I have been teaching beginner through intermediate Italian courses since 2019 involving basic conversation skills, grammar (present indicative, passato prossimo, conjugating verbs with pronouns, adjectives reflecting the correct the-- as there are 7 the's in Italian, and more), as well as vocabulary, comprehension via shows such as Bluey, fairytale reading, and even songs such Ed Sheeran's "Perfect Symphony" classes to make the language to come to life in a fun way. I've taught over 1,000 students through private lessons, group sessions, and charter schools with over 400 positive reviews.

I have worked with students who have ASD, ADHD (up to severe), dysgraphia, neurodivergent, selective mutism, slow processing speed, and more. I help them gain confidence that they matter, can be themselves, & can learn what we are learning.
It would be helpful to have Ciao 8th edition textbook by Carla Larese Riga and Irene Bubula--Philips as it is used at times. A used version is perfect (new ones are quite expensive).
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class provides parents with a cheaper option that one on one private lessons (generally around $1 a minute) but still a small group at a higher Italian level than beginners.

Around Christmas, any songs will be secular based. 

YouTube may be used in class if extra timer permits to learn conversation skills, a song, or watch a show in Italian. No account needed. Links will be in classroom to re-watch video if desired.

Quizlets are sometimes given to review with. You will need to set up an account for them to be able to do the optional homework with Quizlet if desired.
