More classes coming soon!
Buongiorno! You’ve heard the language on television and movies, and now is your chance to begin your study of Italian and how to use it for conversation and basic understanding. This four-part course will help your comprehension, build vocabulary and prepare you to carry on an Italian conversation you can implement in daily living. Attention will be given to language, culture and grammar, all with the goal of helping you navigate your way through everyday living situations. The course will assume no prior knowledge of the language.

Travel Italy
More classes coming soon!
Buon Viaggio! Join us for an Italian linguistic and culture adventure in preparation for that special trip to Italy. This course will increase comprehension and grammatical usage, especially in the types of travel situations you will encounter. We will examine foods, culture, geography and, of course, restaurant meal ordering, transportation, directions, greetings, medical and other
key phrases. A reference book will be included with the class.

Women's Self Defense: Shock, Scream, Run
