IT 162 - Comprehensive Intermediate Italian

(6.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: Open to students who have completed IT 102  or IT 161  or placed into IT 103 . The material covered is essentially the same as for the IT 103-104 sequence, except that it is covered in one semester instead of two. It consists of a systematic consolidation and expansion of the four basic skills: reading, understanding, speaking, and writing. To increase and perfect students' acquired abilities/proficiencies in the language and broaden their understanding of the country's culture and literature, the second half is a capstone reviewing and reinforcing language skills to help students attain the intermediate level as defined by ACTFL guidelines in the five skills: reading, writing, speaking, comprehension, and culture of Italy and Italian-speaking areas. The course includes the use of the language in context-with authentic readings, discussion in Italian, and film clips. Counts as two three-credit courses. Contact time includes six 50-minute class sessions per week. Laboratory study outside the classroom is required. Closed to students who have taken IT 103 , IT 104 , or the equivalent.
