Building upon the basic foundation provided in Beginning Italian (-are verbs, few irregular verbs, articles, calendar) you will improve your listening skills and conversational ability through structured dialogues and other practical activities. Begin to communicate more precisely as you learn -ere and -ire verbs in the present and all conjugations in the past tenses. Topics will include: review of expressions of date and quantity, indefinite and definite articles, past tense, interrogatives, and direct object pronouns (Prego chapters 2-4). Students will need to purchase the Prego textbook (editions 6, 7 or 8).
