Advanced

Advanced I is designed for students who have an established high intermediate knowledge of Italian. The course begins with a review of the main points that were taught in Intermediate II. Throughout fifteen weeks, while growing vocabulary students will learn the trapassato prossimo, the congiuntivo passato, how to use the verb dovere to express a hypothesis, agreement between time frame and verb family, and a more in depth study of the use of pronouns, adverbs and the use of ci and ne. At the end of the course, we hope to build a student’s knowledge to be able to confidently make analogies, ask an opinion in support or against a topic of conversation, express doubt, hopes and disapproval, express a hypothetical situation and an unrealized event in the past.

Advanced II is designed for students who have an established low advanced knowledge of Italian. The course begins with a review of the main points that were taught in Advanced I. Throughout fifteen weeks, while implementing new vocabulary, students will learn the congiuntivo imperfetto, continue to build the agreement between time frame and verb family, the passato remoto,  and indirect speech.  At the end of the course, we hope to build a student’s knowledge to be able to confidently give a detailed explanation on an event that occurred in the past or present, make comparisons and judgements, give suggestions, and indicate advantages and/or disadvantages regarding a particular situation or argument.
