How to Enroll

This course introduces students with NO (or limited) PRIOR KNOWLEDGE of Italian to the Italian language. Using immersion techniques, basic grammatical structures and a limited vocabulary are presented in a way that generates simple conversational skills that grow over the course of the workshop. Maximum: 30 students. Instructor e-mail: afigliola@frital.umass.edu About the Instructor: Arturo Figliola has taught Italian for over twenty years at a number of institutions, including Colby College, Mount Holyoke, and the University of Washington. He is currently a member of the Italian faculty at UMass. His research and professional experience in Italy have taken him to the North (the Monferrato), Central Italy (Siena and Florence), and the South (Napoli). Arturo's approach to language teaching combines communicative skill development with a strong emphasis on basic grammatical structures.
