• Italian III

     

    Course Description

    This third year course completes the basic presentation of grammar and is followed by a systematic review.  Practical conversation is stressed and composition work is introduced.  Study of idioms and vocabulary is broadened.  Major components of Italian culture are studied.  The language skills are developed through a variety of readings of increased difficulty.  The further development of the three modes of communication:  Interpretive, Interpersonal and Presentational is continued with a more concentrated emphasis on the visual-graphic skills.

     

     

    General Goals

    The Italian III course will help prepare students to demonstrate their level of Italian proficiency across three communicative modes (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational) and the five goal areas outlined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century (Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities).  The study of a language strengthens critical-thinking skills through problem solving, conceptualizing, and reasoning and enhances the ability to see connections between the various disciplines by incorporating visual and performing arts, health and physical education, language arts literacy, mathematics, science and social studies and workplace readiness into the language classroom.  The program’s goal is to enable students to become multilingual and multicultural resources for American and international businesses based in the state of New Jersey.
