Italian: Beginner Level 1

Italian is spoken as native language by approximately 85 million people in Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Australia. Throughout the world it is the fifth most studied foreign language. Taught by an experienced and educated instructor, these classes emphasize building vocabulary, solidifying grammar, and improving spoken interaction. Beginner Level 1 is for students who have not studied the language before, or have less than 10 hours of classroom time within the last year. Following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference, students at this level will learn to identify common words concerning themselves and their families, read basic vocabulary, ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need, and use simple phrases and sentences to describe familiar people and places.
