Fall Term: September 14 through November 20 (ONLINE, ZOOM)


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

                                                                             Basic User: A1, A2                               

Independent User: B1, B2

Proficient User: C1, C2



In addition to regular classes, we offer conversation classes, grammar workshops, book discussions, 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 through the online transaction processing system, or in person by paying with a check at our Open House. Please confirm your credit card 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.  

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.
