Course Description

Course Title : Italian (Continuation)

Marino College

List of key topics to be covered:
– Progressive introduction of a basic Italian language in the teaching process
– Various familiar situations: meeting people, restaurant, shop, travel, asking for the time,
talking about the weather, etc…
– Talking about hobbies and likings
– Describe yourself and your family, your job, etc…
Related grammar coverage:
– General problems of pronunciation for English speakers. Alphabet (quickly).
– Articles (definite, indefinite), Genders
– Auxiliary verbs (essere, avere)
– Regular verbs: coniugazioni (-are, -ere, -ire), Indicativo Presente
– Questo, quello (this, that); questions: chi, cosa, come, quando, perchè (who, what, how,
when, why)
– Numbers: Cardinali e Ordinali
– Most used Irregular verbs (always Present Tense)
– Eventual introduction to other tenses, subject to time availability
Proposed learning outcomes:
Students will benefit from a fresh and solid approach to the Italian language. They will challenge
the next level with confidence and eagerness. My aim is to stretch the good effects of this course to
its further development, so that their future teachers will find no gaps in their knowledge, enabling
them to move quickly and safely on with the programme.
Outline of teaching methodologies:
It is my opinion that one of the most frequent reasons for the “drop-out effect” of students learning
Italian is the lack of solidity of their first studies. As their learning proceeds they find themselves
stuck in an ever-increasing confusion, with few chances of recovery.
Thus my course will focus on a clear grammatical basis, with a lesson-by-lesson work of
consolidation carried out through tests and exercises.
