ESG Seminar: Speak Italian with Your Mouth Full - Lesson 2, part 1 (lecture)
Experimental Study Group Undergraduate Seminar on Italian language, culture, and food: ES.S41 Speak Italian…with your mouth full
Lesson 2, part 1 (lecture)
Instructor: Dr. Paola Rebusco
The participants in this seminar will dive in the Mediterranean diet while learning basic conversational Italian. For the past 50 years scientists have studied the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, but a good diet is not based on recipes only, it is also rooted in healthy habits and in culture. On the other hand it is well known that language immersion courses are more effective and lasting than traditional language courses. Each class is based on the preparation of a delicious dish and on the bite-sized acquisition of parts of the Italian language and culture. At the end of the seminar the participants will be able to cook some healthy and tasty recipes in their dorm and to understand and speak basic Italian.
Paola Rebusco teaches physics at ESG and is a native Italian, who among other things worked as a cook on a sailing boat.
