The Italian Center of New York City, Offers Italian and Spanish Classes The Italian Center of New York City, Boston Office, will offer nine-week begin- ners Italian or Spanish classes at the Italian Cen- ter of New York City, Boston Office, 317 Hanover Street, 2"d Floor, Boston, Massachu- setts. Each class will be 90 minutes. The Italian language class will begin on Wednesday, April 1st at 11:00 am and the Spanish class will begin on Thursday, April 2nd at 11:00 am using the Sheltered For- eign Language Approach. The Sheltered Foreign Lan- guage Approach is a custom- ized program tailored in teaching foreign language specifically to adults. The pro- gram is based on research conducted by Cummins and Krashen, who indicate that adult learners need visual materials as well as auditory materials to be able to grasp a second language. The uniqueness of this approach is that it is specifically geared for adults. Generally, lessons are fun and entertaining, al- lowing the learners to feel free to communicate. Mr. Robert Trifiletti, born in Italy, will be instructing the classes. He lived in Flo- rence and Madrid where he attended school for foreign- ers. He has taught in Italy and in Spain for the Mangol Institute. He completed his graduate work at the Univer- sity of the Americas in Mexico, Graduated from Ohio State University and received his Master Degree at Kent State University. He was employed at the White House for 3 years, the U.S. Department of Education in the Foreign Language Office in Washington, DC for 34 years where he administers foreign language grants and contracts to school districts, colleges and universities. He headed the Foreign vis- itor's Program while he worked for 29 years at the Washington Post Company. One of his interests is teach- ing Spanish and Italian lunchtime programs to vari- ous federal agencies. The program will incorpo- rate modules and testing materials developed by Rob- ert TrifilettL Mr. Trifiletti has developed lessons which are utilized in teaching Ital- ian to adults. Teaching for- eign language via computer through PowerPoint presen- tations, allows students fre- quent opportunities to prac- tice the languages at home. The exercises are based on communicative compe- tence, helping students to speak almost immediately. Mr. Trifiletti has also devel- oped modules and drills us- ing the Sheltered Foreign Language Program. Much of the materials that exist -- many commercial books, materials and audiovisuals -- do not relate to adults who are learning a foreign language If you are interested, please register in person on Monday, March 30st at 11:00 am at the Italian Center in the North End. Mr. Robert Trifiletti requires students to attend the dem- onstration class to appreci- ate the requirements of the class and to explain the Sheltered Foreign Language Approach of teaching. All proceeds will be donated to Rosie's Place in Boston, All materials will be provided for duplication. i i i
