Italian Language

This is time-sensative material because Italian Language Classes will be starting soon in two locations: the first is the classic Dante Alighieri program at Seattle University. See the brochure attached below as a PDF.


The second are group lessons offered by the NW Language Acadamy on Whidbey Island, see details immediately below.

We are delighted to announce  that Fall session for Italian group lessons is scheduled to start the week of September 21! These weekly 1.5 hr lessons will continue through mid November 2015. Level: Beginning/Intermediate. 

The class is taught by Professor Greta D'Amico, a resident of Italy for many years, an experienced educator  who specializes in Italian & French literature & culture. The instruction is interactive, dynamic, and emphasizes conversation in practical situations supported with essential grammar & vocabulary.

Tuition amount is dependent on enrollment: $ 285 (materials not included) per student for the class with 5 or more participants. Should there be less than five participants, the fee per student is $385 (materials not included).  Worktrade options available, please inquire.
