Why Study with us  -  Small groups and university-educated native speakers provide the ideal environment to learn a foreign language. Our instructors, born and raised in Italy, bring first-hand experience and cultural background of Italian life and current traditions to the classroom.

Our Language courses, based on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), range from Beginning to Advanced level and provide a full program of study, all year around.  

The CEFR organizes language proficiency in six levels, A1 to C2, which can be regrouped into three broad levels: Basic User, Independent User and Proficient User. 


                             Basic User: A1, A2.                                

Independent User: B1, B2

Proficient User: C1, C2


See course pages for further details and correspondence with ICC levels.

In addition to regular classes, we offer conversation classes, grammar workshops, book clubs, opera, and literature classes. Students of the school have numerous opportunities to attend a great array of cultural events to further expand their knowledge of Italian language and culture.

How to register - You may register for a class on this site with a credit card using Paypal's secure online transaction processing system, or in person by paying with a check at our Open House. Please confirm your Paypal transaction within 48 hours in order to hold your place in class and avoid cancellation.  If you choose to pay by check at the open house, we are unable to reserve your place in class until the time of payment.  You can select the course you want from one of the sub menus below "Adult Language School" on the left of this page.

The ICC requires a minimum of 4 students in any group class.  When enrollment drops below this number, students will be offered the option of remitting a tuition supplement.  If all involved students agree to the supplement, the class can materialize.  All adult students must hold active ICC memberships.
