Italian 103 April 2019

If you have not previously taken classes with Valenti Lingua you may need to complete both an oral and written assessment prior to enrolling in ITA 103. The oral assessment can be taken via Skype or in person . Please call Valenti Lingua at 480 628-0165 to schedule an appointment.

Dates & Times

Classes start Tuesday evening, April 2nd. We’ll meet on Tuesdays from 6:25 pm to 8:50 pm for 10 consecutive weeks.  The course will conclude on June 4th (10, two hour plus sessions). Classes are audio recorded and distributed to students making it easier for students to stay current in case of absences.

Classes are held in a classroom near Lincoln and Scottsdale Rd.  We’ll have a room with a white board, tables, chairs, air conditioning and plenty of parking. We have all the amenities we need for a comfortable classroom environment.  The address will be sent to students who have started the enrollment process by completing and returning the attached form.

A little information about the class:

Italian 103 is structured as a third semester Italian class. A main focus of this class will be reflexive verbs in the present and passato prossimo tenses, the imperfect tense, the imperfect vs the passato prossimo, and the imperative. Homework will be assigned on a weekly basis, but there won’t be any grades. Students are expected to complete all homework assignments and prepare for class. Student preparation in 103 is a prerequisite for admission into the subsequent ITA 201 class. Our goal will be to cover chapters 8 – 10 of our text. Italian 103 will also provide a solid foundation for those who wish to continue to study Italian with Valenti Lingua upon completion of 103. Students who have not completed Italian 102 with Valenti Lingua may need to take an oral and written assessment test prior to enrollment. All homework assignments will be sent via email. Once enrolled I will send students the first set of assignments for the first class. A digital audio recording of classes will be made available to students in case of an absence. Students have found these recordings to be helpful.

Cost for the program: Tuition is $415.00. Payment and enrollment forms are due by 11:00 pm, Friday, March 22nd.  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. If you find an inexpensive copy with the CD’s, go ahead and purchase it. Again, be sure to get the 6th edition, and feel free to shop around.

How to Enroll:

Please read the following steps for enrolling and the refund policy below. Be sure to have read the entire email prior to proceeding with enrollment.

1) Complete and sign the enrollment form attached. Please return it as an attachment in an email. Include your full name, phone number, email, and signature. If you are enrolling a friend or spouse please have that person complete and return an enrollment form as well. A payment request with the address of the class will be sent to students who have already submitted the enrollment form. Students are only enrolled once both the enrollment form and payment have been received. Students will be given the option of paying by Venmo or the service. Both services are safe and free of any fees. If your bank doesn’t participate in the Zellepay service, you can use Venmo. Credit card payments will not be accepted for this class.  

2) Once enrolled, refunds will not be issued, and classes will not be prorated. In the event the class is cancelled due to an insufficient number of students (very unlikely), those who have paid will receive a prompt and full refund. Tuition for Italian 103 can only be applied to the Italian 103 class taught from April to June of 2019. The tuition cannot be used as credit for other future classes or private lessons in the event that a student enrolls in this course and does not attend (regardless of the student’s excuse).

3) Registering students are expected to have read this email in its entirety. Please call me or email me with any questions. The enrollment form is attached below.
