Description

Class Experience

The goal of this class is to help students get excited and feel confident in speaking some Italian through learning some key grammar and verb skills (We will go over the futuro verb tense, how to say "this" and "that," & Ed Sheeran's song Perfect ft. Andrea Bocelli) 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, or living in Italy.
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 basic 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 and fairytale reading classes to make the language to come to life in a fun way.
Optional to review the material taught.
Printer will be needed if you desire to print off the pdf of what we learn in each class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There are no quizzes or tests. We review and engage in mini-conversations together. Your student should expect to participate. If asked, I provide a certificate in pdf format for finishing the course.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will use YouTube to listen to the song and read the lyrics in Italian. It will be suggested that the students practice this song on YouTube or on iTunes as both of those two channels have the lyrics in Italian. (However, iTunes is optional).

Printables of information learned will either be attached in the Outschool classroom or be given through a Google Drive link of which no Google account is required but you or your students may want to use the link to print off material to review or bring to class.

The song "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran ft. Andrea Bocelli is about romance (how the woman looks perfect to him and that he's found the woman he wants to marry and have kids with). Doing this song sung by a popular British and Italian artist will give confidence to students to not just read Italian and memorize grammar but to become comfortable in speaking the language such as through a song which they can remember the tune and have fun with.
Google Drive link may be given to print off materials for class if they desire to print to review. Otherwise, the attachments will be added to the classroom directly.

Lyrics can be printed on from a few different websites but here is one: https://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/edsheeran/perfectsymphony.html
