Why Learn Italian?

Unesco rates Italy as having more sites of historical importance than any other country and, with Italy being home to almost sixty percent of the world's arts treasures, speaking Italian affords you a richer experience and understanding of Italy's art, history, and food. Whether you're ordering pizza in Naples, or gelato in Venice, having a working knowledge of the Italian language not only enhances your holiday experience, but could also save you a few euros. And if you are considering a career in fashion and design, planning to buy a second home in Tuscany or are an aficionado of classical music then learning Italian is a must.

Learning a language can change your life.

Being surrounded by others who are interested in the Italian language and culture will reinforce your interest and motivation. Learning together, with shared commitment, creates a pleasant and exciting education experience.

Why a Classroom Instead of an On-Line Course?

Clearly there are those who have been successful using on-line courses.

However, we have found that most students who are serious about learning Italian do better in a classroom setting with native-speaking teachers, using college-level texts. Why?

  • Regularly scheduled Italian classes

  • Accountability from your teacher and the class

  • Individual attention to your learning style

  • Interaction with teacher and classmates

  • Continuity of teaching method at all levels

  • Stay with your classmates as you progress

More About Italian

Did you know?

Italian didn't become a single, official language until 1861. Though various dialects of Italian have been around for centuries, it wasn't until Italy unified that a standard version of the language emerged. In 1861, only about 2.5% of Italy's population could speak what is now known as standard Italian.

Private Lessons

Some students prefer private lessons instead of a scheduled class, or occasionally take private classes to augment their existing scheduled course. Private lessons are tailored to specific needs, and can be useful if a student's language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, or if scheduling and privacy is a concern.

With our large staff of native speakers, we can schedule private lessons in most languages.

Private lessons are available in packages of eight, 80-minute sessions; or, if you are enrolled in a class, your private lesson can be scheduled individually.

Alternative Programs

The majority of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn another language. We also offer the following alternative programs.

English | Accent Reduction

Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and focus on exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Our Accent Reduction course focuses on pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation, through vowel and consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters, and readings. Individual attention is given to each student's area of difficulty.

English | Native Speaker

These classes are for those who grew up speaking English but want to improve and refine their English. Designed to give you the critical edge in English communication, they target grammar, spelling, and pronunciation.

Little Linguals

Designed for children aged 6 – 11, our "Little Lingual" classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogue. Children aged 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.

These exciting classes are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. The younger the learner, the better they are at mimicking new sounds and adopting pronunciation. The brain is open to new sounds and patterns in preadolescence.

At this age, young children have time to learn through play-like activities. Language lessons can be informal and children's minds are not yet cluttered with facts to be stored and tested. Before children become self-conscious, they can try out their newly acquired languages without fear of embarrassment.

Children who grow up learning about languages develop empathy for others and a curiosity for different cultures and ideas, and are better prepared to take their place in a global society. Furthermore, in later years, career opportunities increase for those with additional languages to offer.

Studies by Harvard University confirm that learning additional languages increases critical thinking skills, creativity and flexibility of the mind in young children. Moreover, pupils who learn a foreign language outscore their non-foreign-language-learning peers in standardized verbal and math tests, indicating that learning additional language is a cognitive - and not just linguistic - activity. The brain, like any muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental muscle.

Travel Classes

Our Travel Classes are designed for those who are planning a trip and want to get more out of their travel experience. These classes are held twice a week for one month. They are language classes focused on travel conversation, pronunciation, and culture.
