ITAL-112 Intensive Advanced Italian II
A second-year intensive course meeting for 50 minutes five days a week, Intensive Advanced
Italian II continues and builds on the work done in Intensive Basic, Intermediate Italian, and Advanced I
providing a review of Italian grammar learned in the previous years and opportunities to develop
the four skills of speaking, understanding, reading, and writing at an advanced level. The course is
centered on thematic units dealing with aspects of Italian history, culture, and contemporary life that are
presented to students through readings, listening materials, videos and films and through the use of
language technologies (like Blackboard and other web tools). The general objective is to develop students
proficiency in oral and written Italian, to provide them with the tools not only to communicate in formal
and informal encounters and exchanges in the target country, but also to function in Italian within
academic environments. Finally, intercultural reflection and exchange are given prominence in Advanced
II as in the other courses that conform the Italian Language Curriculum.
