Language Courses

Language classes in the Italian Department are taught using a communicative approach that integrates the skills of speaking, reading, writing, and listening. Literature and cultural materials play an important part in this process. Specialized courses allow students to develop their conversational skills and writing style. For highly motivated students, the department offers courses of instruction at varying speeds and levels. Students who wish to get started on an Italian language program should refer to the links at the right for further information.
