Introductory Italian will be offered evenings at Frostburg State University from Jan. 3 to Jan. 25, 2005.
The emphasis of the course will be on the ease of oral communication in Italian, in situations that are common to most tourists and students abroad, including: ordering, reservations, talking about ourselves, talking about our families, talking about our hobbies and activities and talking about our classes. The students will also learn how to write in Italian.
Dr. Katherine Almquist, who has worked with the Frostburg State University Foreign Language Department for 3 years, will teach the course. She has designed the course to prepare the students to be able to travel to Italy and be able to efficiently discuss personal interests and life tasks. She will also expose the students to the different regions of Italy, local culture and the importance of understanding regional differences for speaking with Italians. The course will continue, using the same textbook, with MDFL 290.001 in Spring 2005 taught from 11 to 11:50 a.m., Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
