This semester, we’re going to focus more on speaking and pronunciation. We’ll use a book (Storie per ridere) which uses short and very short stories (barzellette!), supplemented by comprehension tests and exercises.

Studying Italian with jokes: why? To learn the language better, but also to know Italian culture, because jokes are somehow a point of view on the reality and character of a people. But above all, to learn with a smile!

We will also continue the study of preposizioni – a bit of grammar sprinkling to keep you on your toes!
