Student Comments

Stefania Filigheddu’s Italian Advanced Reading and Conversation class is definitely advanced, but it is so worth the effort. Not only are we challenged (in a good way) regarding vocabulary and grammar, but we are challenged to analyze the literature, and our eyes are opened to the Italian culture in ways that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Definitely a five-star class.

The Italian Reading and Conversation class was very helpful in my process of learning Italian. We read a novel and then discussed and analyzed it. Stephania did a great job and I really enjoyed it very much.
