Our Beginner’s Conversational Italian Classes are the best way to learn “La bella lingua Italiana”. The only prerequisite for our enjoyable and stress-free learning experience is a fun attitude for learning the language, customs and culture of Italy.

Are you traveling to Italy? I’ve been making yearly visits to Italy for the past 20 years so I can tell you exactly what to expect the moment you step off the plane. I am certain of two things you will do on your vacation, eat and buy! So I’ll teach you how to order a meal, get your favorite flavor of gelato and how to bargain. I’ll raise your comfort level in Italy by also teaching you how to navigate train travel, enjoy your hotel, where to sip your espresso and relax with a glass of wine

plus so much more. You’ll learn the cultural do's and don'ts and the expressive Italian hand gestures! Our classes will help you avoid awkward situations, making your vacation a more enjoyable, memorable and relaxing experience.

Are you of Italian descent? As you know our culture is storied and our language is beautiful. This class will be the perfect way to reintroduce yourself to your Italian roots. These evenings of fun and stress-free learning are the bridge that will reconnect you with your Italian heritage and your memories. Suddenly you’ll gain a new appreciation for all those ”Italian” things you did growing up.

You want to speak Italian? I will teach you “conversational” Italian, what you need to know for normal everyday conversation. I won’t waste your time teaching you “the ladder is broken” or “the horse is white”. Whether you’re on vacation or it’s another day speaking with your family you will learn the Italian that will get you through your daily conversations. In four weeks you’ll learn more than you can imagine!

Whether your goal is to prepare for your vacation, reconnect with your heritage or personal enrichment you’ll find these classes both satisfying and effective. Or if you are simply looking for a unique, entertaining and enjoyable night out…you’ve found it! Join us.

All materials are provided. So bring a pen, paper, and a smile. Don’t forget your appetite because dinner is included with every class.

Class sizes are limited. RSVP required.
