Instructor notes: This online course is designed for students who are self-motivated, have exceptional time-management skills, and can study and learn grammar concepts without the guidance of an instructor. Grammar concepts are presented with videos and the instructor will be available during office hours for additional explanations if students have questions. This course is not easier, less work, or less of a time commitment than a regular on-ground class. Do NOT take this course for these reasons. This course is in every way the equivalent of the Traditional Italian 101. The course will be available one week before the first day of class for students to get familiar with it. An in-person orientation at the Oceanside Campus will be provided the first day of class. The orientation is not mandatory but strongly recommended. The course will have two proctored exams (one midterm and one final). Proctored exams can be taken at the MiraCosta Proctoring Center or at an alternative location.
