Spring 2023
ITA 2 – Live class via Zoom:
T - Th 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Prerequisites: Italian 1 or equivalent.

Student support hours:
Tuesdays: 3:45 pm - 4:30 pm
Thursday: 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Italian 2 is offered online in a hybrid remote distance learning format.

Requirements: two weekly required two-hour live Zoom sessions that provide instruction and discussion, and where students and the instructor interact. Live attendance and active participation in the weekly Zoom sessions are compulsory. 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 and log in with your college credentials to access your online course.

Italian 2 will be open in Canvas starting Mon Jan 23 to give you early access to complete the orientation materials.

The Spring 2023 semester begins Monday, Jan 30. Our first class will be Tuesday, Jan 31.

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 at

If you would like to practice what you have learned in Italian 1 in the Fall semester, the ITA 1 course in LingroLearning still gives you access to ITA 1 SAM and ebook and it will be open for you until Jan 27. The Live Assist tech support and I won't be available until the first week of class, however, you can complete the auto-graded SAM and review the materials in the ebook.

On the first day of instruction of ITA 2 you will either:

• Create a LingroLearning account (if you don’t have one from completing ITA 1) and enroll in ITA 2 Spring 2023 for Percorsi.

• If you have already completed ITA 1 in LingroLearning, you will log into your LingroLearning account and enroll in ITA 1 Spring 2023 for Percorsi.

Be sure that Cabrillo has your current email address and phone number in Self-Service. 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 on the first day of class, Tuesday, January 31.😊
