Very busy summer! We have an amazing group of new beginning Italian students (among them we have three couples who will soon be traveling to Italy!). This is the first beginning in-person class after the pandemic! We are almost SOLD OUT!
We are also offering PRIVATE CLASSES FOR FAMILIES IN OUR CENTER. We have a family of six who is moving to Italy in a month and are in need to learn Italian! They are doing some great progress in learning the basic of Italian conversation, culture and etiquette! Here are all of us in action practicing and playing fun Italian games and making ITALIAN BREAD to reinforce speaking and writing and reading in Italian!
Here below is a picture of an Individual class for a student in need to perfect reading and speaking abilities at the advanced level
We continue to offer Italian lessons also ONLINE! Here is the latest picture of our intermediate Italian class! Very proud of our students and grateful to have such a great instructor: Prof.ssa Vivivana!

Happy Birthday Repubblica italiana! Today is the 75th anniversary of the Italian Republic. On June 2nd, 1946 women first voted on a national election in Italy and their votes were crucial. This was the first referendum in Italian history. 12,718,641 votes 'for' the Repubblica (54 %) and 10,718,502 votes for Monrchia (45 %)… Here are the 2 options on that historic day
Prof. Applauso is honored to be part of this valuable and much needed work! CONGRATULATION to Emerita prof.
