Comprehensive Italian III includes 30 additional lessons (16 hrs.), plus Readings, which build upon the language skills acquired in Levels I and II. Increased spoken and reading language ability.

Level III will increase your vocabulary and grammatical structures and triple your spoken proficiency. Upon completion of a level III, you will be able to:

* participate in most informal and some formal discussions on practical, social, and some semi-professional topics,
* form longer sentences while maintaining the target language syntax,
* be understood even by native speakers unused to dealing with foreigners,
* handle increasingly difficult grammatical structures,
* enjoy fluent conversations with a variety of strangers,
* have a near-native accent, and the subtleties of the language will be apparent in your speech,
* read at the same level at which you speak.

Note: In order for the Pimsleur Method to work correctly, you must first complete the Level I + II language programs before proceeding to the Level III language program.

 

About the Italian Language

Italian is a Romance language spoken by about 63 million people, primarily in Italy. In Switzerland, Italian is one of four official languages. It is also the official language of San Marino and Vatican City. Standard Italian, adopted by the state after the unification of Italy, is based on Tuscan dialect and is somewhat intermediate between Italo-Dalmatian languages of the South and Northern Italian dialects of the North.

Unlike most other Romance languages, Italian has retained the contrast between short and long consonants which existed in Latin. As in most Romance languages, stress is distinctive. Of the Romance languages, Italian is considered to be one of the closest resembling Latin in terms of vocabulary, though Romanian most closely preserves the noun declension system of Classical Latin, and Spanish the verb conjugation system , while Sardinian is the most conservative in terms of phonology.

In Italy, all Romance languages spoken as the vernacular in Italy, other than standard Italian and other unrelated, non-Italian languages, are termed "Italian dialects". Many Italian dialects are, in fact, historical languages in their own right. These include recognized language groups such as Friulian, Neapolitan, Sardinian, Sicilian, Venetian, and others, and regional variants of these languages such as Calabrian. Though the division between dialect and language has been used by scholars (such as by Francesco Bruni) to distinguish between the languages that made up the Italian koine, and those which had very little or no part in it, such as Albanian, Greek, German, Ladin, and Occitan, which are still spoken by minorities.

Dialects are generally not used for general mass communication and are usually limited to native speakers in informal contexts. In the past, speaking in dialect was often deprecated as a sign of poor education. Younger generations, especially those under 35 (though it may vary in different areas), speak almost exclusively standard Italian in all situations, usually with local accents and idioms. Regional differences can be recognized by various factors: the openness of vowels, the length of the consonants, and influence of the local dialect (for example, annà replaces andare in the area of Rome for the infinitive "to go").

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an digital audio foreign language acquisition procedure developed by Dr Paul Pimsluer that emphasizes involved response over rote memorization. Throughout instruction, the listener repeats words and phrases offered by indigenous presenters and constructs new paragraphs by inference. As new words are introduced, the listener is reminded to echo older phrases. The prompts for any chosen keyword are progressively positioned out in ever-increasing time periods. Somewhere between Nineteen Sixty Three and Nineteen Seventy One, Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi instructional classes while instruction at the UCLA The Pimsleur method centers on knowledge in speaking, as well as competence in reading. These pair of facets are sharpened using 30-minute sessions, which are reiterated until a ranking of at least eighty% knowledge is accomplished before taking the next step to the the succeeding session. Inside course of the modules, students listen closely to indigenous speakers of the target language as they speak phrases in equally the foreign language, combined with the student’s number one language. At graduated time intervals, individuals are inspired to replicate a word or phrase immediately following listening to the presenter. As the novice moves along through the course, the interval grows, as does the size of the lexicon. The programs are made up of 30-minute everyday training sessions and short reading courses
