Lingua, cultura e cucina
Classes are small and lively and are held in Seattle in a cozy, contemporary setting in Laurelhurst, near University Village. In addition to textbooks, we use our own materials and incorporate conversation into the curriculum. Classes are taught primarily to adults of all ages from diverse backgrounds—artists, musicians, actors, writers, editors, physicians, lawyers, engineers, cooks, college students, and retirees. We also teach classes to high school students. Italian coffee and tea are served at every session.
Customized classes are available for those who are unable to attend regularly scheduled classes and wish to have a more one-on-one experience.
Cooking and culture workshops are offered periodically and provide an alternative learning environment where students can supplement their Italian studies with a total language immersion experience, whether it is related to language, culture, or cooking. We offer workshops on cooking, art, film, architecture, history, opera, and various regions or cities of Italy, all in Italian.
Total Immersion Weekends take place on Whidbey Island once or twice a year - a great way to be immersed in the language without going to Italy.
Total Immersion Trip to Italy - An unforgettable journey and the ultimate Italian learning experience! Every two years we offer a 9-10 day trip to Italy with a small group of intermediate to advanced students.
