Content: This course in Italian is designed to assist advanced students in fully developing their Italian language skills while exploring the culture, which permeates the language. Thus, in addition to their contining work in grammar and particular emphasis on writing, students will focus on the sequential study of Italian civilization: art, history, literature, politics, through the 19th century. To enhance the cultural focus, students will be exposed to direct and live cultural footage and interviews conducted in Italy in order to create a coherent and meaningful fusion of language and culture. Italian films will also be shown. The class thus places the fifth language acquisition skill, culture, in the forefront of the curriculum. This class actively engages in the Virtual Class exchange project with a partner class in Padova, Italy.
