Italian Cinema & Language Class (Learn Italian Through Film) June 2016

I am once again teaching an Italian Cinema class. Each time I’ve taught this class it has been very well received by students. This course is just as much a language class as it is a cinema class. Italian films are used as a tool to help students improve their language skills in the following areas: listening comprehension, speaking, vocabulary, sentence structure, and grammar. All of this is accomplished in an entertaining way. Five classes will be devoted to viewing Italian films with English subtitles. The other classes will focus on film discussions in Italian, on correcting the homework, and on using the language used in the films to help students enhance their Italian language skills. We will also review some of the scenes of the films we’ve viewed.

Films will be shown on the odd weeks (starting the with the first class) and the film discussions and reviewing of homework will take place on the even weeks. As an example we would view film A on week one. The following week we would discuss the film and correct the homework that was assigned on film A. There is homework assigned after each film has been viewed.This class is ideal for an intermediate or advanced student of Italian, but beginners are also welcome. Beginners can audit and participate at their leisure. However, auditing students must still pay the full course tuition.

Italian Cinema: Classes begin Wednesday, June 22nd. We’ll meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:45.  The course will conclude on August 24th (10 two hour sessions).  Classes are offered in a classroom near Indian Bend & Scottsdale Road. The address will be sent to students once they have submitted the enrollment form.

Cost for entire program:   $295.00 with a total of 10 classes of two hour meetings. Payment and enrollment forms are due by Monday, June 13th. Don’t delay and run the risk of the class filling up before you enroll.

Materials are free and will be provided via email attachments. Students will print their own materials and bring them to class. Materials will consist of handouts dealing with each of the films we will view.
