Italian 2 Language and Culture (Honors)
Italian is the mellifluous language of music and poetry. It is considered one of the most beautiful languages in the world, and so it is also enjoyable to learn and speak. This course continues to build on the initial proficiency students developed in Italian 1. The goal of this course is to continue to build and strengthen the student’s confidence, and skills through speaking, listening, reading and writing. During class the students will be encouraged to participate and communicate with simple sentences and good pronunciation. Upon completion of the course, the students will be able to handle short interactions in everyday situations, comprehend written sentences and texts, make short spontaneous presentations on familiar topics in class, and write short paragraphs. Students will also continue to explore Italian culture and geography through special research projects each semester.
Alternating Years: This course is taught in alternating years with Italian 1 at the same days and times. Plan to start in Italian 1 in a year it is offered and continue to Italian 2 at the same days and times the next year. This course is offered next in 2023-24 and planned again for 2025-26.
