This week was the "making cannoli" week for us! Both of our Italian 102 classes practiced with verb conjugations, learned about Sicily, & made cannoli! Special thanks to our assistant professor Antonio who helped students making the cannoli!
See our intermediate students in action! This Monday they created a "manfestazione culturale" together by listing the things they needed to execute the very interesting festival dei formaggi, la festa del compleanno e la festa del papà! They used verbs similar to piacere (like occorrere, mancare, bastare, and servire)! Here you can see an example of a very fun and engaging class! BRAVISSIMI!!!

Last night we resumed our Italian 101 after a short break due to the visit in Italy by Prof. Nicolino Applauso. Thank you to Pat's Select for the delicious pizza! We also had some Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and practiced with adjectives and agreement (describing people)! Grazie to our special guests Antonio e Luca! We also had a great time with the Italian 102 class who practiced with vocabulary of the family with Scrabble in ITALIAN (FAMILY EDITION)!
