How to learn Italian

Learn Italian and acquire a genuine appreciation for Italian culture. Our top-notch Italian language lessons will teach you to speak Italian, even if you're just starting out, and perfect your expression if you're a more advanced speaker. While outside of the classroom, you'll have the opportunity to use everything you've learned by interacting with Italian natives.

Italians are known for their gregariousness and hospitality, and will be happy to help you practice. Learn to use your hands and body for extra emphasis, and enjoy Italian discussions with friends in a whole new way. Our small class sizes and individualized Italian language lessons will help you learn the Italian you need for these and many other pursuits.

Learn Italian abroad and go beyond tourism

Many people consider Italian one of the world's most beautiful languages. But Italian is more than just a pretty face: it is the premier language for students and connoisseurs of art history, music, and food. If you learn Italian, your understanding of the Renaissance will develop a whole new dimension.

If you are an opera fan, learn Italian and understand why its inherent musicality inspired even non-Italian composers to write their librettos in Italian. You might even learn about sights that other tourists miss, but locals love.

What are the benefits of studying Italian abroad?

You'll pick up the language much more quickly if you study Italian abroad rather than at home. Perhaps you can find a program at home using a similar communicative method, but you can't get the same immersion experience outside of the classroom that you get with our Italian study abroad program.

Using the language in real, everyday situations is an important aspect of retaining what you learn in class and you will learn lots of new things about Italian culture by communicating with native speakers. Our Italian study abroad program teaches you to truly understand how the culture influences the language.
