Rhodes, Jennifer
[ITAL V1101] Elementary Italian I

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

Jenny is a wonderful teacher for beginners in italian. Not only are her classes so much fun and enjoyable to go to, but you learn a lot without necessarily realizing it. She has lots of fun activities that she incorporates into the class, and uses her background working in the opera world to further the study of Italian. I took her class for both elementary levels, and both semesters we took a trip to the opera, and also to Eataly to try some authentic italian food! Honestly, I could not recommend her more highly!

Workload:

one composition (150 words) a week, and a chapter in the workbook and textbook due on the day of the quiz. One quiz a week, 1 midterm and 1 final. Standard to all elementary italian classes.
