New Italian Classes in Tribeca!

Ciao a tutti!
I am glad to introduce my new Italian classes for this Spring.
Please send me an email if you have any questions and prepariamoci a parlare Italiano because "la lingua Italiana fa bene alla salute" (Italian language is good for your health) :)



The student learns the grammar while speaking the language: a step-by-step method that creates confidence in speaking and understanding from the first lesson.

Each week we will focus on different personal and reflexive pronouns. For example, the first lesson is about the first person singular pronoun Io (Io sono Italiano/I am Italian) and the first person singular reflexive pronoun Mi (Mi fa felice/He makes me happy). Using different charts the students will combine the personal and the reflexive pronouns with different nouns, verbs and adjectives (Io vado a scuola ogni settimana/I go to school every week). All of this grammar instruction is introduced to the student through conversation.

Over the eight weeks, the student will get more and more familiar with personal and reflexive pronouns and with the Present, the Present Conditional and the Present Progressive tenses.

The same method is applied in the Advanced Beginner and Intermediate classes but using different tenses and more advanced grammar to achieve more complex syntax.

Starting on May 13, 2013

This class is intended for students who are completely new to the language or for those who are Beginners or Advanced Beginners but would like to review the basics. The class is mostly in Italian. The student learns the grammar while speaking the language: a step-by-step method that creates confidence in speaking and understanding from the first lesson. The class focuses on three tenses: Present (I go), Present Conditional (I would go) and Present Progressive (I am going).

Advanced Beginner*
8 weeks of one-hour classes - May 13 to July 01, 2013
Every Monday from 8 to 9 pm $160

This class is for students who are familiar with some grammar, know a lot of words, and need to practice. It is also great for students who need to review and practice basic and intermediate grammar. The class is entirely taught in Italian. This class focuses on three tenses: Imperfect (I was going or I used to go), Present Perfect (I went or I have gone) and Past Conditional (I would have gone)

Short Movies and Conversation*
8 weeks of two-hours classes – May 17 to July 05, 2013
Every Wednesday from 7 to 9 pm $250

This class is a great opportunity to practice your Italian. The short movies I have chosen are a great collection of new and established Italian directors. The topics of these shorts are, as usual in Italian movies, great for prompting passionate conversations. The course offers a fantastic chance to discover some new talents of contemporary Italian cinema as well as rare shorts of more established Italian movie directors. The movies are 10-15 minutes long and are followed by lively conversation. This class is intended for intermediate and advanced students.
