Registration for the Summer 2022 is now closed. 

The course list for the Fall Session will be posted in mid-September and courses will begin in mid-October.

We follow the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) which is an international standard for describing language ability. It describes language ability on a six-point scale, from A1 for beginners, up to C2 for those who have mastered a language.


Beginner: A1.1, A1.2, A1.3

Elementary: A2.1, A2.2, A2.3

Intermediate: B1.1, B1.2, B1.3

Upper Intermediate: B2.1, B2.2, B2.3

Advanced: C1.1, C1.2, C1.3

Upper Advanced: C2

Grammar courses are composed of 10 weekly classes of 2.5 hours each for a total of 25 hours of instructions per course.

Each level (A1, A2, etc.) is  comprised of three 10-week courses.


The fee for most courses is $320 (except where indicated), no tax.

Classes are capped at 9 students (11 for A1.1) allowing for a high student/teacher ratio and the possibility of personal attention.

Students can enjoy a real Italian environment, fostered by the many cultural events organized by the Institute, most of which are free.​

Our dedicated teachers will assist you in the learning process, creating a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere in the classroom.
