Drawing from a variety of artists in pop and folk music, learn Italian in a fun way through its music and melody. We will listen to songs, watch and listen to videos, read lyrics, work on translations together, with explanations of pronunciation, grammar, and meaning, while repeating or, for the confident extroverts, singing phrases from the songs. We'll also try to apply words and phrases to common travel situations building a vocabulary that might inspire a future trip to Italy. 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 Word Reference or Google Translate. Rich first learned Italian in Kittery Adult Ed. and continues using Italian books, movies, music, and travel across Italy.
