Course Description:

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of the Italian language and covers basic grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. It includes simple conversation, reading, and writing exercises and provides an introduction to the arts and cultures of Italy and Italian-speaking peoples.

Essential Objectives:

1. Recognize and pronounce the basic sounds (phonemes) of the Italian language.
2. Employ vocabulary and grammatical structures orally in the Italian language to:
a) Communicate and solicit basic personal information, including age, address, telephone number, birthday, nationality, and occupation.
b) Participate in simple interpersonal exchanges, such as introductions, greetings, requests, and purchases.
c) Identify personal and household articles, such as clothing, furniture, foods, and utensils.
d) Describe his/her town, residence, family, daily activities, interests, personal likes and dislikes, and other important elements of personal life.
e) Respond appropriately to simple statements and questions on selected topics.
3. Describe basic geographical features, cultural and artistic traditions, and elements of daily life (food, clothing, work, etc.) of selected countries in which Italian is spoken.
4. Apply learned vocabulary and grammatical structures to writing simple sentences, notes and short letters.
5. Read simple prepared or authentic dialogues and narratives and answer questions about the contents of the readings.

Textbooks:

Fall 2014 textbook data will be uploaded on August 8. We strongly suggest that you verify the information below with our online bookseller EdMap before purchasing textbooks from another vendor. If your course is at the Winooski center, check the UVM Bookstore for textbook and pricing information.

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
