ITAL 203: Intermediate Italian I

Self-paced Correspondence

ITAL 203 develops your skills in the four areas of grammar, reading, writing, and pronunciation. You will review some of the grammatical structures you learned in your second-semester Italian course and learn a few new ones. Readings include essays on many aspects of Italian culture, including food, holidays, music, information technology, American influence, and social problems. You will also read a collection of short stories by a famous Italian author. The readings will help you expand your vocabulary and increase your fluency.
