I took this class just before leaving for Italy.  This class helped me a lot in Italy to feel more comfortable and to make real connections with many Italian speakers.  Even just being able to say in Italian -- I don't speak Italian -- was transformative!  It communicated that I was a visitor to THEIR country and I respected their language.  It really changed attitudes!  Being able just to communicate family relationships and numbers made a difference in the quality of my experience abroad.  Thank you!
