My boyfriend and I are interested in learning Italian and we want to take Italian 101 this Autumn. We are interested in being fluent, but after helping a friend with his Spanish final, I realized that a lot of the stuff covers grammar/verbs. I'm not interested in learning grammar as much as I am interested in actually speaking the language. We think we'll be able to help each other practice speaking, but I'm scared we won't get enough of that in the class.
Other than actually going to Italy for a year, do you think we'll get something out of the 100 and possibly the 200 series?
I don't need any languages to fulfill my requirements (I already have all the credits I need) and we are just doing this for fun.
