We all want to live life in the present—but sometimes we need to talk about the past. Italian 3 is for those who are ready to build on their knowledge of the present tense and expand it into the past. You’ll also get an intro to the fun stuff: various forms of slang that’ll make you sound like a native.

Meet once a week for 2 hours. 10 sessions in total.SELECT DATE & LOCATION
Each class meets at the same time for 10 weeks - creating consistency in your language learning.
We believe in hands-on learning, rather than getting lost in a textbook or sucked into perfection of grammar.
We exclusively hire instructors with a conversation based and student-centered approach to teaching, providing the best in-class experience.
Speaking is at the heart of all of our classes, and in an immersive setting, you’ll get even more opportunity to practice critical speaking and listening skills.
You should start here if you've completed Italian 2 or Italian Essentials with us. If you've studied Italian before and can confidently conjugate regular, irregular, and reflexive verbs in the present tense while speaking, you should also start here.
Talk about your past and tell stories about your upbringing. Tell someone what you did over the weekend. Talk about your goals and accomplishments. Discuss Italian film and literature.
From day one, you'll be engaging in meaningful conversation with your classmates and instructors. This will prepare you to feel confident and comfortable when speaking with natives.
Everyday vocabulary. Differentiate between comparatives and superlatives. Direct and indirect object pronouns. How to use CI. Passato prossimo and imperfetto tenses.
Italian 3 is a course that meets once per week with a total of 10 sessions.

A professional dancer turned teacher, Richard likes to approach language instruction from a full bodied (or embodied) perspective. A patient and caring teacher who likes to see people achieve their personal best. Richard believes learning a language is more than about memorizing words and conjugating verbs; more importantly, it is about discovering different ways of being in the world.
Richard's class is approached with an overall positive, encouraging attitude. I find myself laughing and learning!

He is charismatic and has a great knowledge of different parts of the world, which is helpful for future travels. Very patient and bright personality

We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we do not hold classes on holidays. The full list of our skip dates is New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and a holiday break between Christmas and New Years.
All of our group classes meet for a total of 20 hours of live instruction. Some courses meet 2 hours once a week for a total of 10 sessions, while others meet 1 hour twice a week for a total of 20 sessions.
Plans change—we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your Group Course to make any cancelations or same-level transfers. After that, there are no refunds under any circumstance. During the first 2 weeks of class, however, if you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected], and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!
Most students do miss a class, or two, and we’re here to help ensure that you won’t fall behind despite any missed classes. We’ve set up our curriculum to make lessons easy to follow along outside of class, and your teacher will reach out to your group each week with a summary of materials, topics, and homework covered in-class.
