    Ciao Umberto -
    Is it too late for me to join Italian 101 class? I planned to take the 102 class but, after reviewing the compiti, have decided I would like to take the 101 class. Non ho comprato il libro già, pero comprerò la settimana prossima.

    Hello! I just saw this today and immediately wanted to join the 101 beginners class. Will it be okay if I don't have the book today? I will make sure to have it for next week's class. Also, is it $20 for each class - a total of $240 by the end of the twelve weeks? Or does the same deal for the winter course apply here - $180 for the entire twelve weeks? Grazie! Rachel

      Of course you can join the class tonight and buy the book later. I'm sorry but unfortunately there is no discount anymore and the price is $20 per class. See you later.
