COURSE OBJECTIVE
Welcome to Italian 121.  The objective of the course is to provide students with a sound basis for learning Italian  as it is spoken and written today, and to work toward a Novice level proficiency in  Italian.  Students will build basic skills in listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing, and students will have exposure to Italian daily life and culture.  This course is designed for students with little or no previous experience in the language. 
Attendance is essential to good performance.  Students are expected to attend every class period.  As a bonus for good attendance, each student who has attended every consecutive class for a period of two weeks will earn a coupon worth 8 points.  These coupons may be used in order to have a late assignment accepted, or they may be accumulated and handed in at the end of the semester and used toward your final grade.  A maximum of 64 points may be accumulated through coupons.


     Late arrivals are very disruptive to the entire c lass.  Please make every effort to arrive on time.  Three late arrivals will constitute an absence.
