[ITAL V3336] Advanced Italian II

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Prof Palumbo is a wonderful teacher. She is warm, caring, approachable, attentive, and eager to teach Italian. I took Advanced Italian II: Italian in Film Comedy with her in the Spring of 2009. The class was structured around decades (we started with the '40s) and every one-two weeks we would watch another film. Besides discussing the films sometimes she also had grammar review sheets for us to complete in class. Also, just a small note, you had to watch the films outside of class.
Like the other reviewer there is absolutely nothing bad to say about Prof. Palumbo.

I also had Advanced Italian Conversation II with her which is a really fun class and a great way to keep up your Italian.

Workload:

Two page commentary on each decade. These were due whenever you wanted them to be as long as you wrote them all. This was wonderful because it gave you the freedom to plan your work schedule. However, I would recommend not leaving them to the very end.
In addition to the reviews we also had a final presentation on an Italian film of our choice.
