About

From the first day of class on the Italian Studies program at Boston College, students are exposed to the Italian language and trained to practice the essential skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) while expanding their vocabulary and learning new grammar points and structures in context. 

Overview

All courses of the Italian Studies program at Boston College incorporate the study of Italian culture. Students build their language skills while learning to understand relevant sociocultural and historical aspects of Italy and appreciate and celebrate the differences between its culture and our own.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of the Elementary sequence (ITAL1003 and ITAL1004), students should be able to:

  • speak in Italian to describe, narrate stories, and carry on spontaneous conversations about topics such as family, daily activities, food, clothing, health, likes and dislikes and events in the past.
  • comprehend the target language well enough to understand the main ideas and additional details in short conversations referring to the topics mentioned above and other situations in different verb tenses.
  • read and understand texts (some prepared specifically for students and some primary sources) dealing with a variety of cultural products and practices.
  • write basic compositions about a variety of themes in simple but complete sentences and compose short paragraphs, displaying good control of Italian grammar and sentence structure.
