ITAL 103 - Italian Through Comics and Fairy Tales–Continuing Language Study

Semester Hours: 3


This course uses comics, graphic novels, and fairy tales to develop reading and grammar skills. While reading fairy tales from important literary collections such as the ones by Italo Calvino and Giambattista Basile will expand the students’ ability to navigate short narratives in the target language, the employment of comics and graphic novels, with their use of text and image, will improve their knowledge of vocabulary and the acquisition of everyday conversational Italian. All class meetings will include a conversational component.

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