I'm testing out the development of the new OU Beginner's Italian course. (L195 Andante Beginners' Italian). This will last for 6 weeks and entails, I'm not sure what yet! My materials arrived this morning.
It's a pack, which includes a book ("Colloquial Italian" by Sylvia Lymbery), cassettes and CDs. The really interesting part though, is that we will be trying out the OU's new Virtual Learning Environment, and we have to write blogs and play with wiki and lyceum. Could be fun!
For the Lyceum online tutorials, I've had to buy a headset and have been practising with it this morning! I CAN BE MARIA!! LOL!
