From our students:

The instructor is excellent; the best that I have had. She is prepared & very patient. Although we use the textbook, she comes up with creative ways to cover the material.  Also, she doesn’t waste class time having us do things that we can do on our own, but instead encourages conversation, while still covering the material.

    Bridge #1 to Upper Intermediate (after Int.3 and before Upper Intermediate 1)

    Before proceeding to Upper Intermediate 1, students who have completed Intermediate 3 have the opportunity to go over grammatical structures covered in previous levels in order to become more confident in their speaking and writing skills. They will refine their ability to describe events in the past and express their opinions while using different tenses and structures. Students will work on short Italian literary texts as a springboard for a thorough and a more in depth review of previous materials.

    Please contact the school if you have not taken any other classes at the ICC before enrolling. An instructor will assess your level.
