Learn how to speak and follow simple Italian conversations in this introductory course. Grammar will be introduced with a communicative, culture-based approach for beginning students and a grammar book in English. In this course, students will learn how to understand and carry on simple conversations about everyday subjects such as work, personal interests, family, and friends. By the end of the course, students will know how to conduct simple transactions such as renting a car, making reservations for hotels and restaurants, and ordering food.

This is the first course in a three-course sequence. The textbook assigned for this course will also be used for Levels II (Winter 2020) and III (Spring 2020). Students may enroll in this introductory course without intending to take all three courses in the sequence.
