Drawing from a variety of artists in pop, folk, and some opera, learn Italian in a fun way through its music and melody. We will listen to songs, read lyrics, work on translations together, with explanations of pronunciation, grammar, and meaning, while repeating or singing phrases from the songs. We'll also apply words and phrases to common travel situations building a vocabulary that might inspire a future trip to Italy post-pandemic. Some prior Italian instruction is helpful, but not required for a motivated learner who has an Italian/English dictionary or access to a smart phone using Google Translate. A lifelong learner, Rich first learned Italian in Kittery Adult Ed. and continued through Italian books, movies, music, and travel across Italy.
