Classes for the Community

Would you like to speak Italian and learn about Italian culture? Do you have some knowledge of Italian but you would like to learn more? Would you like to retain your language skills by practicing with other students?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the questions above, we have an Italian class for you! The Center for Italian Studies is proud to sponsor our Italian Classes for the Community. These courses are designed to expose students to Italian language and culture according to prior knowledge and individual needs.

Courses and placement are as follows:

Beginning Italian Students with little or no knowledge of Italian.

Intermediate Italian: Students with the equivalent of 1-2 years of Italian non-credit course or 2-3 semesters of college credit courses.

Advanced Italian: Students with at least 3-4 semesters of non-credit Italian courses or 2-3 year college Italian. 




Classes begin October 14, 2014, and run through April 5, 2015, for an annual fee of $250.00.
