Get ready for this

Become conversational in a matter of weeks with our new, radical approach to language learning. We've created our own custom-designed curriculum and textbook that focus on Italian for the real world. Pick up practical phrases like making plans or asking that cutie out. Master the present tense, irregular verbs, and conjugation basics. 



Say more than just hello

Learn how to confidently introduce yourself and make a damn good impression. You'll also pick up survival phrases and expressions—like if we dropped you in Rome or Bologna, you'd make some friends along the way.

Community & Conversation

We've been told our classes feel more like dinner parties. You'll start speaking on day one, in a community of passionate, like-minded people, all working toward becoming fluent. We believe in getting away from just the textbook and diving into conversation.



Small Classes, Great Materials

Size does matter—and we keep 'em small! Average class size is 10 students and focused on practical, everyday use of language.


We use the best materials—from custom audio recordings and books written by us. We'll send you details on which book you need to purchase after checkout. Questions? Call us for more details.

Last But Not Least

Who will be teaching the class?

We handpick the best instructor, based on experience and edge—like working at one of the top bars or design firms in the city.

What happens if I miss a class?

No need to worry, you’ll get a care package next time we see you with what you missed (and extra goodies).

What’s the teaching style?

We teach through experience. Expect to shake cocktails with your own hands, watch live musical performances, and share your designs with others.
