School AMICI offers five different language courses during fall, winter and spring sessions. All classes are held on Wednesday, 6:30-8:30pm, from September to May.


To learn a language you need consistent practice, but also some fun. Students attending classes actively participate in enjoyable activities; lessons are set in a relaxed and fun environment. Studying a little bit every day is recommended, but most of the learning will be done at school, with native instructors.

Bring to class your textbook , and a notebook. We also recommend a small English-Italian dictionary.

The following are our standard courses. If you are not sure which one is more appropriate for you, please give us a call and we will determine your best fit. You can also click on each course name to see details about program contents.

Beginning Italian (Level 1)
This course is for people who have never studied Italian before. From the very first class, the teacher speaks a little bit of Italian. Students learn how to introduce themselves, ask and give information, express needs and simple thoughts. Lessons include simple vocabulary and expressions.

Beginning Italian Plus (Level 2)
This is a course for students who have had some exposure to the language and feel comfortable with basic words and grammar; present tenses of main verbs are introduced. It is mostly recommended for those who want to improve their vocabulary and study more to participate in social life.

Intermediate Italian (Level 3)
This course is designed for students who already know the basic language. The goal is to improve comprehension, pronunciation and vocabulary. There are some group activities using Italian language only. Use of more refined grammar and expressions is featured.

Intermediate Italian Plus (Level 4)
Students who already have a good command of the language or have studied Italian for at least one year will be ready for this class. Some elements of advanced grammar are covered. Since only Italian is spoken in class, we recommend a preliminary telephone conversation for students enrolling in this course to make sure their language skills are appropriate.

Advanced Italian (Level 5)
Students who speak with no hesitation or have studied Italian for at least two years or have lived in Italy for a while are encouraged to sign up for this course. Various topics are discussed in group activities to stimulate conversation, using advanced grammar. A phone conversation in italian is required to assess student's fluency for this top level.

All courses are held at Academy of World Languages. Next start date for online classes is June 9, 2020.
