Learn to speak Italian with our Italian language courses.

Italian is a beautiful, intricate, and melodic language and you can find its influence in many aspects of our life and culture. It is considered one of the easier languages to learn – it is pronounced how it’s written, so it is great for new language learners. Once you have learned the sounds and mastered the sing-song intonation, Italian is a fun and easy language to learn.

In this online course, you will learn about the Italian language and culture in an informal, practical, and interactive way. Our professional and well-experienced Italian tutors will help you to gain a solid foundation of the Italian language to communicate in Italian with simple vocabulary and basic sentences.

Please note, this course will be held online via Zoom.
