This is a 10-week Italian language class for BEGINNERS

Welcome to our new series for those who want to learn Italian.  It is such a beautiful, musical language.  Everyone wishes they could speak it – especially after they have visited Italy.  This is your opportunity to open that door and begin your study of Italian.

The weekly classes are online via Zoom.  Your instructor, Marco Pelle, a native Italian, will be zooming in from various locations between Milano, Vicenza and New York.  This course will continue from where the initial series of 10 classes left off.  If you are completely new to Italian, however, Marco can give you an online review to make sure you catch up to the current class.

Each session will include instruction in basic Italian, conversation and a little bit of culture.  Topics covered will be:

  • basic grammar
  • initial vocabulary
  • pronunciation guide
  • simple verb conjugations
  • reading of simple dialogues
  • listening and basic writing skills

If you have to miss a class, no problem – each session will be recorded and sent to you after the class, so you can review the lessons at your own pace or catch up.

Class enrollment will be limited to facilitate conversation and interaction among the students.

This beginning series is 10 weeks to give students a good foundation before you proceed to the next level.
