*Dates: 12 Mondays: Sep. 23, Sep 30, Oct 7, Oct 14, Oct 21, Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 11, Nov 18, NO CLASS NOV 25 (Thanksgiving week), Dec 2, Dec 9, Dec 16

*Instructor: Shannon

*This class is good for: Beginning students who learn better by speaking rather than learning grammar rules explicitly.

*Description of class: In this class you'll learn about a dozen words or phrases each week, and material will build slowly from one week to the next. This class will focus on speaking and repetition of the words and phrases you learn to make them fluid. Topics include: greetings, pleasantries, numbers, introductions and descriptions, likes and dislikes, can/want to/have to. At the end of this class you’ll have a good start in basic conversational Italian.

*Homework: You will be expected to memorize the words and phrases given each week and to complete the exercises, which consist of phrases in English (to translate in Italian) and Italian (to translate into English). These exercises will be reviewed during the following class.

*Price: $80 for 12 weeks ($70 for cardholders), due at the first class you attend by cash or check (note that checks will not be cashed until after the 2nd class, after you’ve decided that you want to continue).

*Materials needed before class starts: You will receive an audio CD at the first class. I'll also send you a PDF before the first class, which you can print out on your own, or you have the option of buying a binder with the materials printed out (~60 pages) for $20.

*NOTE ABOUT REGISTRATION: The minimum number of students for this class is 3. If fewer than 3 people sign up, this class will not go forward. Thanks for understanding. (Contact Erin about tutoring with Gian Paolo if you're interested in that option.)
