Italian Language Classes
The Museo Italo Americano offers a number of Italian language classes at varying levels.
Classes are limited to 15 students with a minimum class size of 4 students.
Our teaching Methods
The Italian language classes offered at the Museo are taught by native Italian instructors who are experienced in teaching Italian to English speakers. The classes use a multimedia approach and emphasis is on conversation from the beginning.
We encourage you to lessen the mental stress of speaking in class with a glass of wine and a bite of formaggio now and then! And… remember, studying Italian is fun, because you learn all about the most beautiful country in the world and its simpatici inhabitants!
Textbooks are available at the Museo ItaloAmericano with the exception of “Nuova grammatica pratica della lingua italiana” and “Da Capo, 6th Edition” textbooks which can be purchased online.
Paid parking is available and averages approximately $5 per class. Free parking is also available with a short walk of about 2 blocks.
