Music is a very helpful modality of language learning. As part of the class you will receive a bellissimo CD of both classic and popular Italian music that we will use in class and with which you can practice at home!
Each session will have a basic Italian culinary class in which you will learn Italian food preparation - in italiano!
For divertimento(fun) students often form study groups and it is not uncommon for us all to organize a festa a casa nostra (at our home) or at one of yours to celebrate learning italiano and life together!
