Are you planning a trip to Italy? In Italian for Travelers, you will learn tools for comfortable interaction with the Italian people, in a lively, relaxed environment. You will practice key expressions, vocabulary words, and idioms, travel tips, cultural aspects and more. When you have completed this course, you should be able to pronounce, speak, understand and write the Italian you will need as a casual traveler to Italy. There is no class on October 10 and October 12. The textbook, New Italian Espresso, presents an Italian Course created especially for speakers whose native language is English. The book is comprehensive, so this will be the only textbook you will need for the course. While the book has 15 units, we will complete between 6-8 units for an 8-class session. The remaining units could be completed during subsequent sessions if you would like to continue with the program.
