Language courses

Language courses at the elementary and intermediate levels in Italian are offered on an intensive basis and are taught with an eclectic, functional five-skills approach. This integrated approach develops simultaneously all the fundamental skills: speaking, comprehension, reading, writing and cultural awareness.

Our language courses offer students an opportunity to acquire communication skills while developing an awareness and appreciation of Italian culture and civilization. These courses are designed for students in any field or major that benefits from the ability to communicate in Italian and knowledge of Italian literature, culture and civilization.

Before enrolling in a first Italian course at Wheaton, all students who have studied Italian must take the placement exam given by the department.
