Ragazzi Italiani 4

Course Materials (Optional)

Nuovi Compagni Textbook


Ragazzi Italiani 4 (“Italian Teens”) is a yearlong course divided into two separate sessions that start in September and January. Students may join at any time. This is an advanced-level Italian language course designed for middle/high school students who are “heritage” speakers. Heritage students are already fluent in spoken Italian because they speak Italian at home with their parents and family members. Please note that non-heritage speakers are also welcomed to take this course with a referral from their Italian teacher. During this course, students will work to strengthen and deepen their knowledge of advanced grammar and language structures and improve their writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. Only Italian is spoken in class and the textbook is the same used in middle schools in Italy. This course is the perfect gateway for students who wish to take the AP® Italian Language & Culture exam course when they are in 9th or 10th grade. Your teacher is Antonella.
