About Italian

Italian language students at Ramapo work in small classes and receive close, individualized attention and encouragement from their professors. In addition, technical support and personal assistance are available in the Electronic Learning Facility (ELF). The Electronic Learning Facility is a ultra-modern lab where, leading-edge technology allows interactive communications around the world.

In all our courses, Italian language is used as often as possible. Classes are conducted with an emphasis on oral communication, but writing, reading and the study of grammar are fully incorporated in our methodology. The appropriate sequence of courses enables a student to acquire a degree of fluency in the language and some insight into the diverse cultural aspects of the countries where the language is spoken.
