Section 2: T - Th 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Italian 1 is offered in a remote distance-learning teaching model. There will be two required live Zoom weekly meetings that provide instruction and discussion, and a time when students and the instructor interact. Live attendance at the weekly Zoom sessions, throughout the sessions, is a requirement for this course.

The balance of the course takes place via Canvas, where students will find ample instruction and learning options.

The course will be open in Canvas starting Sun Aug. 20, to give you the opportunity to complete the preliminary orientation for this class. Click on the Canvas link from the Cabrillo web site homepage to access your online course. The Fall 2023 semester begins Monday Aug 28. Our first class will be Tuesday Aug 29.

Enrolled and wait listed students: Two weeks before the first class, you will receive a welcome email. I will tell you how to join the first Zoom class session and what materials you need for the course. If you do not receive this information or if you have any questions, please email me.

If the class you want is full, be sure to get on the waitlist so that you will receive instructions about how to attend the first Zoom session.

Be sure Cabrillo has your current email address and phone number. Please check your email regularly for messages from the College and your instructors.

I will email a ‘welcome letter’ to enrolled students on the week of August 13. If you do not receive this information, please email me at Contact me if you have any questions before we meet in class.
Ci vediamo presto! See you in the first class!😊
