Italian 2B Fall 2016

Italian 2B: Classes start October 17th. We’ll meet on Monday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:45 pm.  The course will conclude on December 19th. (10 sessions).

Classes are offered in a classroom near Indian Bend and Scottsdale Rd. The exact address will be sent to students who have submitted an enrollment form.

A little information about the class:

Italian 2 is structured as a fourth semester class. There will be homework assignments, but no tests, exams or grades. This class is perfect for those who have completed Beginning Italian 2A. This is a structured class, taught to accommodate the pace of the group. This course will aid those who are travelling to Italy by teaching basic grammar and vocabulary necessary for conversing in Italian. Our goal will be to cover units 14  through 16 (3 chapters) of the text Ciao 6th Edition. The previous chapters are covered in the preceeding three classes. Students taking this class should already have a working knowledge of the present tense, the “passato prossimo” tense, and the imperfect tense, as well as other basic grammar typically taught during the first three classes. Students should be able to construct basic sentences in the present and past and have a good grasp of the object pronouns covered in chapters 11- 13. This class will also emphasize conversation more than the previous classes leading up to Italian 2B. Please feel free to call me as well to discuss this class in further detail.

Cost for the program: 295.00 per student. There are a total of 10 classes.  Payment is due (must be received) by Monday, September 19th. Don’t delay and run the risk of the class filling up before you enroll. These classes do fill, and I have to turn away students. Students must be at least 18 years of age or have permission of the instructor to enroll.

Textbook Information:

“Ciao” 6th edition by Carla Larese Riga. Used copies are available, and I would encourage you to purchase a used copy to keep the cost down. You do not need the CD or DVD that may accompany some of the used texts. However, you are welcome to purchase a text that comes with these supplements if you’d like. Again, be sure to get the 6th edition.  Feel free to shop around.
