CCOM 2013

Planning a trip to Italy? Enhance your trip by learning some basic Italian.

Emphasis will be on developing elementary conversational skills - pronunciation, greetings and short sentences to ask for such things as food, shelter and directions. You'll learn local expressions, along with Italian culture and customs. You'll also practice your Italian for typical scenarios in restaurants, taxis, airports, museums, hotels, outdoor markets, and for buying gelato!

No materials required.
