COURSE DESCRIPTION/PRINCIPAL TOPICS

Emphasizing communicative and linguistic skills, this course reviews the material
studied in 101, 102 and 203. The goal of the curriculum is to develop the four
basic language skills—listening, speaking, reading and writing—at the
appropriate level of proficiency in classes that are taught exclusively in Italian.
Increased emphasis is placed on writing assignments and on reading selected
texts originally written for native speakers of Italian.

STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Italian and gain increasing mastery of the language . With frequent practice in
listening, speaking, reading, and writing, they demonstrate the ability to
communicate effectively in Italian in everyday situations and to interpret and
comment on texts written in Italian. They expand their understanding of Italian
culture, and refine their ability to write about topics of general cultural interest in
fluent Italian. They also demonstrate a heightened appreciation of Italian culture
in a variety of its manifestations, and a greater understanding of the
interrelatedness of cultures across national and regional boundaries.
