ITA 2 – Spring 2022 - Live class via Zoom: T - Th 1:30 – 3:00 pm

Italian 2 will be offered using a hybrid remote teaching model. There will be two required live Zoom meetings each week (T - Th 1:30 – 3:00 pm) that provide instruction and discussion, and where students and the instructor interact. Live attendance at the weekly Zoom sessions is a required part of the course.

The balance of the course takes place via Canvas, where students will find ample instruction and learning options. Click on the Canvas link on the Cabrillo homepage to access your online course. It will be available starting Fri Jan 21. The Spring 2022 semester begins Monday Jan 24. Our first class will be Tuesday Jan 25.

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.

If you would like to practice what you have learned in Italian 1, the lab/ebook platform will be open for you to create an early account, starting Dec 27th. The Live Assist tech support and I won't be available until the first week of class, however, you can complete the auto-graded student activity manual. I recommend this only if you plan on completing the class, because after 14-day free trial you have to pay for the lab enrollment fee ($99). I will send an email before Dec 27th to enrolled students with instructions on how to enroll in the lab.

Be sure Cabrillo has your current email address. Please check your email regularly for messages from the College and your instructors. Contact me at the link above if you have any questions before we meet in class. Ci vediamo presto! See you in the first class!
