ITA 201: Intermediate Italian is designed to further develop, strengthen, and refine the skills acquired during the first three years of study. The course offers students a full review of Italian grammar together with the development of speaking and writing skills and a consistent exposure to Italian language and culture.

To achieve these goals, students engage in interactive oral activities; write weekly compositions; and read and discuss a variety of authentic texts that include current events, cultural life, and literary selections. In addition, students watch films, documentaries, and footage from Italian television, which they will write about and discuss in class.
