Italian language course



The Italian classes are for students of all ages, at all different levels of Italian, who wish to understand, speak, read and write theItalian language correctly. In order to reach this aim, we guarantee each student individual attention. Italian classes are small and there are special review sessions on Saturday mornings. During our many years of experience, we have found the best weekly combination of varied and interesting classes in Italian language, conversation and culture. Italian culture classes are included in course fees. (*)
