Spring Italian Language Lessons Begin

The Cleveland History Center is offering a series of Basic Italian Language Classes, taught by Serena Scaiola, a native speaker of Italian with many years of teaching experience at all levels in several local Universities.

Beginner I : This 8-week, Saturday-morning course is designed for individuals with no previous knowledge of Italian, or for those who were exposed to the Italian spoken language but need to refresh. It is intended to give basic skills in reading, listening and speaking, with a focus on developing comprehension and communication skills. The fundamental elements of grammar, phonetics, and syntax will be introduced by using a functional situation approach. A part of each lesson will be dedicated to real situation exercises, grammar drills and consolidation of the material, deepening of concepts through cultural readings, conversations, role games, listening, and reading exercises. No matter what the motivation is – personal interest, upcoming travels or researching your genealogy – learning Italian will make any experience much more fun and engaging!

Beginner II: This 8-week, Saturday-afternoon course is designed for individuals who have already taken Beginner I Italian, or have a very basic knowledge of Italian language.  These classes will build on the concepts taught in Beginner I and will utilize many of the same learning tools and strategies.

 Intermediate Level: This 8-week course is designed for individuals who have had some experience with the Italian language but want to brush up their skills before moving on to the Beginner II level. Ideal for intermediate-level speakers and past Beginner I students, this course will review familiar concepts while gradually introducing new elements of the language. (May be taken simultaneously with Beginner I or Beginner II level classes.)

DATES & TIMES:

Beginner I & II: Saturdays in MAY| 5/4, 5/11, 5/18,5/25 JUNE | 6/1, 6/8,  6/15, 6/22

  • Beginner I: 10:00-11:30am
