Italian - Online Courses

Why learn Italian?

  • Italian is the native language of more than 58 million people worldwide.
  • Broaden your understanding and appreciation of Italian culture. Italian influences are evident in everyday life in the United States, especially in fashion, food and architecture.
  • Knowledge of a second language is increasingly important as the business industry trends on going global. Italy is the world's fifth largest industrial producer of goods, making Italian speakers a valuable asset to many large, global companies.

Courses offered

First- and second-year Italian language courses are delivered online throughout the year. Refer to the OSU Ecampus Schedule of Classes for current schedule information.

The Ecampus schedule of classes includes available courses for the current term and up to three future terms. Class offerings are continually updated and may be added, removed or rescheduled without notice. Check back frequently for current information.

Students who complete first and second year Italian will be able to:

  • Recognize themes of full speed Italian conversations focusing on learned vocabulary.
  • Respond to questions using learned grammar and vocabulary.
  • Utilize tu and Lei (you) forms correctly.
  • Evaluate personal practices in light of new cultural perspectives.
  • Aurally identify meaning of simple to complex questions.

Learn from a well-respected university

Italian courses are developed and taught by Oregon State faculty within the Department of World Languages and Cultures and all course material is delivered through multimedia instruction coupled with realistic learning objectives. Students will interact with their classmates through online discussion boards and interactive content to gain competency communicating in Italian. Online students receive the same curriculum and transcripts as our on-campus students.
