I have enjoyed the last two terms with Paola as my teacher. I find the themed conversational style on cultural topics has improved my confidence in spoken Italian. The discussions have helped stretch my vocabulary. The underpinning with grammar is useful and is at about the right level as far as the amount of time spent on it.
