The Conversation and Analysis sections are two halves of one course and need to be taken together.
Both are designed to immerse you in the language and give you a practical ability as quickly as possible.

Conversation (MWF) classes focus on vocabulary development, cultural knowledge, and speaking Italian.

Analysis Sections (1AX, 1BX, 1CX, 1DX)

Analysis (TuTh) classes focus on listening, reading, and learning how to analyze the Italian language and culture.
