Learn Italian at the WRHS Cleveland History Center

The Cleveland History Center is pleased to offer another series of Basic Italian Language Classes taught by Serena Scaiola, a native speaker of Italian with many years of teaching experience at all levels in several local universities. 

Beginner I and II Italian classes meet on Saturday mornings for 8 weeks. They are designed for individuals with no previous knowledge of Italian or for those who were exposed to the Italian spoken language but need to refresh. The classes develop basic skills in reading and listening and speaking, with a focus on comprehension and communication skills. The fundamental elements of grammar, phonetics and syntax are introduced through a functional situation approach. A part of each lesson is dedicated to real situation exercises, grammar drills and consolidation of the material, deepening of concepts through cultural readings, conversations, role games, listening, and reading exercises.

No matter what the motivation is – personal interest, upcoming travels or researching your genealogy – learning Italian will make any experience much more fun and engaging!

Register soon as these classes fill up quickly!
