Emphasis will be on the further development of basic competence in the language. Class will be conducted in Italian. Student oral-aural skills will be developed, as well as reading comprehension and writing skills. Students will be exposed to increasingly more complex texts and situations throughout the semester. Course Objectives: Students will develop their basic knowledge of language structure, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions in the assigned lessons, and acquire further competence in all basic skills: listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing. By the end of this course students can expect to be able to handle with much more confidence the functions learned in Italian 1130. Students will become more fluent in describing people and things in their immediate environment, talking about their family and home, their daily routine, their likes and dislikes, not only in the present time sequence but also in various past tenses.

Complete information on current UF policies for assigning grade points is found at: http://www.registrar.ufl.edu/catalog/policies/regulationgrades.html . Attendance REGULAR ATTENDANCE IN CLASS IS REQUIRED .   Roll will be taken on a daily basis. Absences (for any reason) up to six will have a minimal impact on your grade. Absences above six will have a more serious impact, resulting in a 1% deduction (per absence above six) from your overall final grade. Arriving late will also impact your grade. Repeated tardiness will be counted towards absence (3 late arrivals = 1 absence).
