The first half of the textbook Io & l'italiano will be used to guide the course. Topics will include greetings and introductions, occupations and studies, the telephone, dates and times, asking for prices and travel information, personal details, language for use in bars and restaurants, making hotel reservations, banking and invitations. Grammar includes present tense, prepositions, adverbs, irregular verbs (venire, andare, sapere, essere, etc.), conjunctions, and articles.
This level begins with a review of the words and structures learned in level 1, and continues with Io & l'italiano. New topics include describing habits, visiting the doctor, describing the weather, discussing leisure activities, talking about one's family, asking for directions, shopping, eating out, explaining reasons, travel, plans, small talk. Grammar includes reflexive verbs, time adverbs, imperatives, prepositions, interjections, adverbs of frequency, possessives, piacere, dovere, and the past tense.
Please note: material will be covered at the pace of the class; some of the above topics may not be covered, as the course will be geared towards the needs of the class as a whole. Some of the curriculum may be modified at the instructor's discretion.
Private Italian Language Programs:
Please note: All Italian lessons are held at Hansa's 2160 Yonge Street campus. For private classes held off campus, within Toronto, an additional 35% surcharge will be added to the course fee.
