Italian Language Program

Both children and adults benefit from learning a second language.

Research shows that children who learn a second language are better at solving problems and are more creative.
They learn how to read faster and are generally more confident than other children.
The multiple cognitive benefits translate to higher scores on standardized tests.

As for adults, some studies show that stimulating the brain with a new language can slow age-related cognitive decline.
Learning a second language in a class setting has the added benefit of fun socialization.

Adult Italian classes are a fun immersion language program designed to develop or reinforce your communicative skills in Italian. Each course focuses on conversational skills at different levels as well as underscoring grammatical basics that are essential to communicate in Italian. You will receive the details of the lessons each week. Participants will meet for 10 weeks. With practice and repetition, you will absorb the finer details of the language that can last a lifetime!

Children Italian classes focus on introducing Italian language to children. Classes offer an interactive approach to the language, designed to get students comfortable speaking Italian. During our sessions, we explore and experiment with basic vocabulary and expressions. Worksheets and videos are also used during the sessions to assist in learning.

Language Class Cancellation Policy:
50 percent of course tuition will be refunded should you decide to discontinue your Italian Language classes after your first lesson; no refunds thereafter.
