Italian Evening Classes

Italian is the fourth most studied language in the world. So what is it about Italian that inspires so many to learn?

Perhaps it's because, in this age of pasta and cappuccino, we often have Italian on our lips, but do not really know what we are saying. Or maybe you have studied music, and want to understand just how fast allegro is really meant to go. Some may be wondering at the shades of chiaroscuro in art, or may have admired a stylish Made in Italy object, and want to understand the secrets of the country that produced it. 

Whatever your reasons, our Italian evening classes will open up the treasures and the beauties of Italy for you.
