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?

Perhpas 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. Or, you might just be drawn to the melody of Italian, which has been renowned throughout the centuries as La dolce lingua (the sweet language)

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

Please note classes will be held online until further notice.
