Content: This is the second course of the two semester introductory sequence (Ital101-Ital102). From the first day of class, instruction is in Italian, and students are encouraged to participate actively in the acquisition of integrated language skills. Emphasis will be placed on useful conversation, elementary grammar, and Italian culture; written and oral exercises will be assigned daily to reinforce material presented in class. Students will be regularly 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. Attendance is required during all four weekly classes. When students have successfully completed Italian 101 and 102 they will have the skills necessary to communicate with Italians and Italian speakers both here and in Italy, on at least a practical level. (We highly recommend a semester in Italy on one of our 5 excellent semester programs and/or a summer on the very popular Emory Summer Studies in Italy program).
Assessment: Examinations: bi-weekly quizzes and final exam. Grading: quizzes 55%, final exam 15%, class participation and attendance 15%, written homework, class work, and oral presentations 15%. The course is especially valuable for students of Art History, English, European History, Film, Music and other Languages and Literatures.
