Italian Conversation & Grammar Classes

Want to improve your spoken italian whilst you are here?
No problem - you are surrounded by italians who speak it.

But most italians speak too fast (often in dialect ) and are not teachers and do not have the time nor the patience to help you improve.

We can provide tailored tuition with a local italian teacher (who speaks good english if you get stuck).

Need Grammar lessons too? Just ask us - the same teacher can provide.

The total costs for a two hour lesson are as follows:
One student Euro 25.
Two students Euro 30.
Three students Euro 40.
Four students Euro 50.

These lessons are only available during July and August, and are held in Civitella Messer Raimondo.
