Italian for Beginners (now in Rockville, MD)

Are you planning a trip to Italy and you would like to get familiar with some of the most common expressions and key phrases? Or maybe you want to discover more of the Italian cultural heritage through a better understanding of the language? Were your ancestors Italian and you feel like bringing out the "Italian in you" by learning Italian? These workshops will help you acquire the fundamental aspects of the language and culture so that your next trip to Italy will be more enjoyable.  Each "workshop" is a stand-alone lesson where attendance is optional but passion is required. :-)  Let's have fun!

The workshop will be conducted by GERMANA MINER and will happen every week unless a cancellation is required.

• Please pay by cash or bring a check written to GERMANA MINER. 

 The workshop starts at 6:00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm.

At least one person needs to RSVP by 6:00 pm the day before the lesson or the workshop will be canceled.

• Workshops may be canceled in case of inclement weather or teacher's inability to attend.

No food is allowed in the classroom so please plan accordingly.

Arriving by Metro: The closest metro station is Rockville Metro (Red Line). For more info on how to get there, please goto

Parking: I found free parking across the library.

    I wanted to thank you for coming to the Rockville Library location that seems very suitable for our lessons: excellent and new facility, good parking, convenient Metro station alternative to get there.
    Most of all I'm glad we can make it fun and educational at the same time. I'm still thinking at some of the idiomatic phrases that made us laugh so much :-) I'll have more next time!

    For the ones who like to practice and refresh what we learned in the previous lesson #3, I uploaded the file "Italian for Beginners - Esercizi Lezione 3". It's NOT a mandatory homework, but it helps ...

    Un bel BRAVO a chi fa i compiti!

    I have received several consents on moving the class to Rockville. Perhaps I didn't realize how many Passatempo members live in MD.
    There is a max of 8 people allowed in the "study room" at the library (including me), therefore I would like to encourage you to RSVP, so others know if the limit has been reached.
    Venite numerosi, Germana

    This location is much better for me - so, thanks! Is the $25 for each class, or for a series? Thanks for letting me know.

      Ciao Andrea, I'm getting a lot of positive feedback about the new location. I guess there are several Marylanders who don't like to drive to DC (like me!). $25 is per class.
      Hope to see you, Germana
