Italian for Communication I

Whether you want to prepare for an exciting trip or deepen your appreciation of a fantastic culture, Italian is the language to learn. Fun and expressive, this is a language where people really do talk with their hands—dozens of gestures have clear-cut meanings—but it is also the language of great literature going back to Dante. If you take this introductory course, you will see that Italian is enjoyable, illuminating, and beautiful, a system of communication worth studying. Beginners will learn basic Italian communication skills in an interactive and engaging classroom environment. With a strong foundation in the present tense, you will learn to express preferences, ask questions, make greetings and introductions, tell time, and discuss leisure activities.
