Learning Italian Through Student-Driven Recordings


Penn State World Campus


“We have students who, in the second and third week, are able to produce five to six minutes of comprehensible Italian that you wouldn’t get in an entire semester of face-to-face time in a regular campus course.”


“[Bongo] is really important for us because it sums up all of that work that students are doing and gives us a place to go in and give them their feedback.”
