Outline (in English)

The sound of foreign languages can be ambiguous, at times feeling awkward and other times charming. The awkwardness might keep us closed off in the world of own language, but the charm might lead us beyond such borders where we witness new possibilities about ourselves.
So let us be charmed by the strange sounds. Like struggling to catch a slippery eel, it can something you aren’t familiar with handling; to catch it you have to dance with it, which might seem ridiculous but comes with all unknowns, in this case someone else's language and culture.
I only hope the students may find something strange, unknown and charming in the Italian language and culture offered in this course, so as to start learning, through the elementary four abilities "listening, speaking, reading, and writing".

Learning Objectives: getting to be familiar with the feel of Italian things with listening / speaking, reading / writing activities, that would be a stepping stone for cross-cultural understanding. While feeling the presence of the people living behind it, use your imagination further, and grasp the foothold of basic Italian communication while expanding your interest to what is called society, culture, or history.

Learning activities outside of classroom: Keep an interest in things related to Italy. You can find the Italian cuisine, novels and essays about Italy. If you want to get familiar with how the language sounds like, you can watch movies and hear Italian pops, maybe via internet. Just try as you like. The preparation and restudy time would be 2 hours

Grade evaluation: 30% on normal score (attendance rate) , 30% on the mini-exam/quiz, and 40% on the final exam.
