Isn’t time to plan your next trip to Italy? This class could come in handy!

Social protocols are often misunderstood by tourists and get in the way of that perfect overseas experience. We will share many stories, resources, and cultural tips to assist you in preparing your future travels to Italy and afford you the best possible experience. You will master the basics of the Italian language (pronunciation, sentence structure, verbs, etc.); learn ways to address people while respecting culture etiquette and elicit the best possible response (greetings, interjections, etc.); find out how and when to order your cappuccino or meal; navigate city public transportation, trains, road systems like a pro; and arrange your own entertainment and cultural visits like a native! A highly interactive and fun class!

If you know that this is the right level/class for you, please sign up!
