In Italian 2 Honors, students will further develop the basic competency skills acquired in the first year, including vocabulary, conversational idioms, grammatical structures, and phonological characteristics of the Italian language. Emphasis will be in helping the students acquire basic competence in the four language skills; the receptive (listening and reading), and the productive (speaking and writing). From the beginning, the student is encouraged to work on building the four skills by active use of the language. This honors course will be more rigorous in all four areas than the regular level 2 course. Cultural aspects of the target language will be presented. Students will be expected to engage in more elaborate direct use of the language as a means of communication. The course will be taught primarily in Italian.
Note: Course receives honors credit on the Carondelet Transcript but is not recognized as a UC-CSU honors course.
