ITAL 106 - Made in Italy–Continuing Language Study

Semester Hours: 3


This course is designed to follow on ITAL 3.  This course aims to work on conversational Italian and written Italian by using a theme-based approach: the most popular Italian products that are exported around the world. Reading skills will be developed through examining the main texts: on-line Italian magazines and newspapers (including related advertisements), along with product sites. Through these primary sources, we will also continue to review and refine grammatical structures.  Because of the nature of Italian promotional literature and Italian marketing language for products, students will develop their descriptive language and consider which registers are best for addressing various segments of consumers. All class meetings will include conversational components through discussions about where we see Italian products, art, and design in our everyday life here in the United States and we will decide how the two cultures (USA and Italy) perceive each other based on the products that they consume.   

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Successful completion of ITAL 003  or equivalent.  (Formerly Advanced Italian Language.)
