Course description:  Accelerated Italian Grammar & Vocabulary Review – The 10-week accelerated course that begins on September 26th reviews the grammatical structures covered in the Novice through Intermediate level Italian courses. It is a fast-paced course that is intended primarily for false beginners (learners who have had some previous instruction or heritage speakers of Italian who feel that they would benefit from a review of the basic Italian grammar). It is an ideal course for students who plan to take our AP® Italian preparation course that begins in January 2016, or who may just want to take the SAT®Subject Test in Italian in June 2016.

Course title:

Advanced organizational and analytical strategies are taught, and students will complete the course feeling better prepared to take the AP® Italian exam.
